Oklahoma Edges Stanford in Sun Bowl

Oklahoma defeats Stanford, 31-27: After a possession-trading second half that saw Oklahoma fight back from a 24-17 deficit to take a 31-27 lead, the Sooners finally closed the door on Stanford with their defense, and emerged with a victory in the 76th annual Brut Sun Bowl on Thursday. A missed 37-yard Oklahoma field goal attempt late in the fourth quarter gave the Cardinal the ball at their own 20-yard line with one more chance to erase Oklahoma's four-point lead. But the Sooner defense pressured quarterback Tavita Pritchard and forced an incomplete pass on fourth-and-2 from the Stanford 28-yard line with just over two minutes remaining.
