Sooners Stop Huskers in Norman

Oklahoma’s efficient offense and stifling defense proved to be too much as the No. 2 Sooners handed the Huskers a 30-3 loss.

Junior I-back Cory Ross pounded through one of the nation’s top defenses 30 times for 130 yards. It was his sixth 100-yard effort this season, and he became the 27th Husker to top the 1,000-yard season mark.

The Huskers finished with 201 rushing yards but were outgained 511-274 in total offense. OU quarterback Jason White, the 2003 Heisman Trophy winner, completed a school-record 18 consecutive passes before finishing 29-of-35 for 383 yards and three touchdowns.

The Huskers avoided being shut out when fullback Steve Kriewald rambled 48 yards to the Oklahoma 24 in the game’s final minute, setting up David Dyches’ 39-yard field goal as time expired.

Commentary

Colonel Mustard

Our team never gave up and played hard to the end of the game. That is a very good sign and I am proud of their effort.

Shatel

This defeat didn't feel bad. When you opened your eyes, the damage looked minimal. This was no disaster. Oh, how the standards have changed.

Omaha World-Herald
McKeever

The one thing White didn't do while improving his chances to win a second straight Heisman Trophy was steal the Huskers' heart.

Lincoln Journal Star
Khus the Red

Callahan and Norvell did a good job of trying to give Joe manageable throws and keep the rush coming at semi-unpredictable times.

HuskerMax
Douglass

It was clear that Nebraska's mission was to simply avoid embarrassment, no more, no less. One reporter termed it the "White Flag" offense.

Grand Island Independent
Howard

The Blackshirts ... made the Sooners a one-dimensional team. The bad thing is that with super-armed Heisman winner Jason White at QB, that one dimension was enough.

Nebraska StatePaper
Leever

Our run defense was better than I expected. Our pass rush was worse.

Tramel

Beating the Cornhuskers once required a huff and a puff and a lot of prayer. Beating these Huskers requires finding the stadium sometime near kickoff.
