The Sooners may have started the season as an inexperienced group of youngsters but they finished as an experienced group of veterans. After starting the season 2-3 OU finished 5-1 over their last 6 games.
The biggest improvement for OU this season came on the offensive side of the ball. Freshman quarterback Rhett Bomar passed for 206 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Sooners 42-14 rout of Oklahoma State. Freshman receivers Manuel Johnson, Juaquin Iglesias and Malcolm Kelly combined for 6 receptions for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns. The star of the game was sophomore running back Adrian Peterson who finished with 237 yards and 2 touchdowns.
The OU defense dominated the OSU offense holding them to only 14 points and 190 total net yards. OSU was never within 14 points and the game was never in doubt.
OU now waits for their bowl assignment. The two biggest possibilities are the Holiday Bowl with a possible match-up against Oregon or the Alamo Bowl with a possible match-up against Iowa.
