Oklahoma 17, Texas A&M 16

I'd almost rather lose by thirty than by one; it seems easier to take when your not resolved to your fate until the final minute. This time the close finish didn't fall the Aggies' way in their game last night against OU. The Sooners didn't seem to miss their star running back, Adrian Peterson, as his replacement, Allen Patrick, ran for over 100 yards for the third straight game. Even though A&M played great second half defense (again), OU was great throughout, holding Stephen McGee to 63 yards passing. The gutsy move of the game came when the Sooners converted a fourth-and-1 from their own 29 with 1:29 remaining to prevent the Aggies from getting the ball back and setting up for a potential game winning field goal. Next up for the Aggies: Nebraska.

By the way, ESPN's College Gameday was in College Station and it was good the see the Aggie fans come out and represent...and spell their signs correctly!
