ARLINGTON, Texas —
Stadium issues: Friday night’s game was the third for OU in Cowboys Stadium and it is now 1-2 following a 14-13 loss to BYU (Sept. 5, 2009) and a 23-20 victory over Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship Game (Dec. 4, 2010).
The win was the Aggies’ first in Cowboys Stadium. They’d lost their previous four games there.
Going out with a boot: Punter Tress Way played his last collegiate game on Friday. The senior did leave a very strong impression with NFL scouts.
Way had five punts (all in the second half). Only one of those punts was returned and it netted a 2-yard loss. Three of the five were downed inside the 20-yard line and the five boots averaged 49.4 yards.
Didn’t happen often: The Sooners were the first team to score in the first quarter against Texas A&M since Ole Miss in the fifth game of the season. In the previous eight games, the Aggies had outscored their opponents 120-3.
