The struggling Aggies will have little time to lick their wounds after a demoralizing 52-17 loss at Texas Tech last week. They will be facing a rested Oklahoma squad that is healthy and appears to be hitting on all cylinders.

To claim their first victory in Norman since 1997, the Aggies must try to contain Oklahoma TB Adrian Peterson -- no small chore -- and limit OU's big plays in the passing game.

The Sooners were struggling with redshirt freshman QB Rhett Bomar earlier this season but are clicking with the emergence of freshman WR Malcom Kelly and the return of WR Travis Wilson, their most experienced and productive receiver. It could add up to another long day for the Aggies' beleaguered secondary.
