Sooners' offense ready for shootout
By David Ubben
NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma's defense gave up over 20 points just twice last season. It gave up 24 in Week 1.
The offense looks like it's ready for a shootout against Florida State, marching 80 yards on its first two drives, capped off by touchdowns from the team's two biggest playmakers, Ryan Broyles and DeMarco Murray. Oklahoma leads 14-7.
Christian Ponder and the Florida State offense better be ready to match, because it doesn't look like Mark Stoops' defense is going to be able to stop Oklahoma's offense too often.
Ponder made it look easy for a score on Florida State's first drive, but the Sooners just forced a three-and-out topped by an intentional grounding by Ponder and have ignited the crowd at Owen Field.
