OU vs. Texas A&M Postgame: Breaking It Down

NORMAN, Okla. — The No. 3 Sooners avenged their loss last year to the Aggies with a 41-25 victory Saturday afternoon, and Sooners Illustrated digs deeper into it.

Game ball goes to: Defensive end Ronnell Lewis—Lewis was all over the field Saturday. He led the team with nine tackles, including two for loss, and he also recorded an interception to go along with a pass broken up and quarterback hurry.

Play of the game: Early in the third quarter, quarterback Landry Jones reared back and fired towards wide receiver Jaz Reynolds, who used his Jaz hands once again. With one hand, Reynolds snared a pass away from two Aggies defenders and finished it off by running into the end zone for a 31-yard touchdown.

It was over when: The Sooners scored with the Bellcat formation for the second time midway through the third quarter. Backup quarterback Blake Bell scampered in front four yards out to make it 34-10 at the time.

Surprise of the game:Texas A&M out-gained OU by well more than 100 yards and still lost by 16.

The biggest thing we learned: The Bellcat formation is truly dominant. It had a near 90 percent success rate and produced two touchdowns and six first downs.

The biggest concern: The loss of star slot receiver Ryan Broyles: He suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in the third quarter and is out for the season.

Streak count: 1 victory at home after losing the 39-game home winning streak against Texas Tech
