Last Saturday night’s game between Oklahoma and Cincinnati showed several things.

Oklahoma sweated out another close win, but their defense needs some work.

Cincinnati had a breakthrough game on offense, but once again turnovers hurt their cause.

The Sooners 31-29 win over Cincinnati at Paul Brown Stadium, was tight all the way to the final minute of play when the 8th-ranked team recovered an onside kick to keep its record unblemished at 4-0.

This is an improvement over 2009, when the Sooners couldn’t win any close games especially on the road, losing four times by a touchdown or less.

The Sooners close losses in 2009 include losing their opener against Brigham Young University 14-13 in Arlington, Texas. They lost at Miami 21-20. They lost to Texas 16-13 and at Nebraska 10-3 which led to an un-Sooner-like season of 8-5.

This season, three of their four wins have been by a touchdown or less. The beat Utah State 31-24 in week 1; slide by Air Force 27-24 and got past Cincinnati last weekend.

Sophomore quarterback Landry Jones completed a career-high 36 passes in 51 attempts for 370 yards and two touchdowns, the final score to freshman fullback Trey Millard with 4:31 remaining in the fourth quarter. Jones’ second touchdown pass put Oklahoma in control of the game.

Several younger players stepped up allowing Oklahoma to remain undefeated. Kenny Stills, a freshman, had four receptions for 72 yards. James Hanna, a reserve junior tight end, recovered D.J. Woods’ fumbled punt return at Cincinnati’s 7-yard line, setting up the Oklahoma game-clinching touchdown pass to Millard.

The Cincinnati Bearcats finally found its games after tough losses on the road to Fresno State and North Carolina State, but are just 1-3 and have their fans wondering if the program is going fall back into its losing ways prior to the arrival of coaches Mark Dantonio and Brian Kelly who revived the program and kept it going. New coach Butch Jones has his work cut out for him because expectations are high for the two-time defending Big East champions.

Oklahoma’s defense made plays when they had to. Safety Jonathan Nelson had two huge plays in the first half. He ran down D.J. Woods who was ahead of everybody by 20 yards on a 73-yard pass reception, punching the ball loose from behind at the 5-yard line. The ball rolled into the end zone and Oklahoma recovered holding onto the lead.

Nelson also intercepted a pass in the end zone late in the first half. Those two, huge plays helped the Sooners lead 17-9 at halftime.

8th ranked Oklahoma escapes Cincinnati, 31-29

CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Cincinnati Bearcats have probably been having nightmares since Saturday’s 31-29 loss to Number 8 Oklahoma at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Bearcats would’ve won the game if not for an interception deep in Oklahoma territory by QB Zach Collaros; a fumble by D.J. Woods on the Sooners 5-yard line after a 73-yard catch-and-run. He was stripped of the ball on the tackle. And the final blow was a fumbled punt by Woods after calling a fair catch in traffic at his own 7-yard line with 4:56 left in the game. That miscue allowed the Sooners to go up 31-22.

All-in-all, Cincinnati proved that it could play with Oklahoma.

Sooners QB Landry Jones directed an Oklahoma offense that used a no-huddle for at least 85 percent of the time and it caused problems for the Cincinnati defense. Jones threw for 370 yards and two touchdowns, allowing the Sooners to withstand the upset-minded Bearcats who wouldn’t back down.

Oklahoma of the Big 12 Conference, is now 4-0 heading to next week’s showdown with Texas. Their sophomore quarterback Landry Jones completed a career-high 36 passes in 51 attempts with one interceptions.

Up until Saturday night’s game, Cincinnati’s offense had been a big diasppointment for the defending Big East champions, who hadn’t been able to protect sophomore quarterback Zach Collaros good enough to get the passing game going. Saturday, Collaros had very good protection, only being sacke 3 times.

Collaros had a solid night passing the ball, 23-of-28 for 305 yards, with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.

The Bearcats also got a big lift on offense, as their top running back Isaiah Pead returned and it took the pressure off of Collaros to pass the ball every down.

Pead sat out the second game of the season, a victory over Indiana State, with a sprained knee. Pead got into the game at North Carolina State but did not carry the football.

The Bearcats did not have the use of their starting tight end Ben Guidugli, because of a sprained ankle. Guidugli was hurt during the 30-19 loss to N.C. State. His loss is a major setback because he is rated as one of the top tight ends in the country.

Guidugli’s replacement, junior Adrien Robinson did a fine job blocking for the running backs and Collaros. He even caught an 18-yard touchdown reception with :58 seconds left in the game.

We’ll have more on the Oklahoma-Cincinnati on Monday with audio from UC QB Zach Collaros.
