Regular Season By the Numbers

NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated recaps the 2011 regular season with a look at some numbers.

9-Victories for the Crimson and Cream. After starting 6-0, the Sooners slumped to a 3-3 finish down the stretch en route to dropping from BCS consideration to the Bowl.

132-Points scored in the third quarter this season. The Sooners have outscored their opponents by a sizable 88 points in the third this year.

349-Career receptions for slot receiver Ryan Broyles, the all-time career catches leader. Broyles, who suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), finished 2011 with 83 catches for 1,157 yards and 10 touchdowns.

2-Starters the Sooners lost for the year. Broyles was one, and running back Dominique Whaley, who also tore his ACL, was the other.

37-Sacks by the OU defense, which ranks seventh in the country. OU is averaging 3.08 sacks per game throughout its 12 contests.

18.5-Tackles for loss by defensive end Frank Alexander. He leads the team both in that category and sacks, with 8.5 of those. Alexander has definitely been the defensive player of the year for the Sooners.
