I had little faith that Byu would even come close, let alone legitimately beat
the Sooners. That goal line stand was truly amazing.
If getting "DRILLED" as all you ute fans predicted all week is something like
this, well heres to getting drilled all year. Can you hear me now?
Because I can't see you standing in the dark of that big Y. . .Moose
on the loose
BYU's Defense held the former Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford to under 100
YARDS PASSING! That is absolutely incredible. Granted he only played 1 half but
he was taken out of the game.
They are lucky the score wasn't higher. With or without Bradford, BYU was
outmuscling them the whole way
OU had not even one sustained drive for a score of any kind. Their td was from
inside the 35, the same for their field goal. Both of the Cougars' TDs were
sustained drives. With 3:03 left and and with the ball on their own 40 to start
a drive to win the game, they sputtered and had to kick a 54 yd field
goal---short and wide to the left. Sure, they shot themselves in the foot all
night but a team of their standing in the polls and with all that tradition
going for them, they were flat out intimidated. BYU's defense had them stifled
the whole game. Brandford's leadership could account for not a single sustained
drive and his backup could do was no better. One of the sports writers for the
Oklahoma City newspaper said "OU's offense stunk," and it was caused by the
Cougar's defense.Great win.
BYU took 10 points off the board with mistakes. The score could have been 24-13.
