Lincoln Riley: We Got To Quit Shooting Ourselves In The Foot

Oklahoma totaled 672 yards of offense against Texas -- 282 on the ground and 390 in the air. WR Dede Westbrook caught three touchdowns, including a 71-yarder, and racked up 232 yards on 10 receptions. RB Samaje Perine went over 200 yards as well, for two scores.

The Sooners’ 273-yard third quarter ranked fifth all time for OU offensive production in a quarter.

Even so, Oklahoma offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley isn't happy.

"We still make so many mistakes, and we're still a work in progress," he said Monday.

The Sooners’ first half didn’t look nearly as pretty as their second half.

OU’s first three drives Saturday ended with a missed field goal attempt and two interceptions. A fumble ended the team's first drive of the second quarter as well.

“We’ve got to hang onto the ball,” Riley said. “We got to quit shooting ourselves in the foot. We still make so many self-inflicted errors. That, on top of having a tough couple of breaks in the first half.” (More at Dallas Morning News)
