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.
