Sooners bully way to title game 49-17

Bob Stoops opening statement…

It was very positive and I was really excited about the way everyone played. It was a well-played game. Complements to Oklahoma State, they're doing some really good things but I'm just really proud and pleased with the way our guys executed. I thought we played - I like to call it a clean game and we took care of the ball, we didn't have very many penalties.

Offensively we really ran the football well and executed well.

Defensively, they're going to have some drives. They do an excellent job in how they move the ball but we really came up with some key stops. That goal-line stand was just fantastic. The second half we really played well. We just really executed well and we just read out what they were doing a little bit better.

I thought the kicking game all night was really strong. The guys really executed well there too so it was just a well-played game.

Stoops on scoring four times in four possessions during the first half…

I think it was an example again of playing together as a team. The defense comes up with their stops and the offense moves the football and makes them sit down for a while and cool off and eat up time and scores.

We really just played well as a team, like we talk about trying to do.
