Sooners Trail W.VA After 1st Qtr

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

   The Sooners had a shaky opening quarter in their 2nd football game of the season.  OU’s offense almost gave up an early safety or even a West Virginia touchdown when QB Trevor Knighrt couldn’t handle a wild snap and chased it back to the Sooners-1.  Knight was also called for intentional grounding on the play, but at least OU still had possession.
   Oklahoma’s offense was still off-kilter and then the defense gave up a huge play.  West Virginia RB Dreamius Smith (how’s that for a name) broke at least FOUR Sooner tackles and then ran away from the OU secondary for a 75-yard TD run to give the visiting Mountaineers a 7-0 lead.
   OU eventually put together a little drive that resulted in a 44-yd. FG from Michael Hunnicutt and that’s how the first period ended…West Virginia leading 7-3.
