Oklahoma Vs. Missouri: Tigers Survive Missed Field Goal After Fumble

Again, Missouri dodges an Oklahoma chance to score points.

This time, after a fumble by Michael Egnew, Oklahoma had great field position, but did little with it, and had to settle for a Jimmy Stevens field goal attempt. But Stevens missed, and with the rain coming down in Columbia, it seems like it just might be Oklahoma's night to fall.

It's hard to put this on any specific thing for Oklahoma but poor third down execution: the Sooners are 3-of-8 on those chances to move the sticks, but have rolled up over 300 yards with less than five minutes gone in the third quarter and put together five drives of 30 or more yards.

Eventually, though, that yardage will have to translate to points, and preferably touchdowns. If not, another top-ranked team will go down in a season already pockmarked by upsets.
