Defense dominates OU spring football game

Although Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford will return this fall as OU’s prominent star, the defense stole the show at OU's spring football game on Saturday, April 10 at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Defense forced two turnovers and scored two touchdowns on head coach Bob Stoops' unique scoring system that allowed defense to score points. Defense beat offense 63-36.

I think [the defense] did pretty good,” sophomore linebacker Travis Lewis said. “There were a lot of players flying around and [offense] only scored twice. Pretty good day.”

The Sooners will make their first appearance of the regular season Labor Day weekend against Brigham Young University at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It will be the first college football game at the new stadium.
