DeMarco Murray ran for 218 yards and two
touchdowns and converted a key fourth down, helping No. 7 Oklahoma
survived an unexpected scare from Utah State for a 31-24 victory on
Jamell Fleming secured the 800th win in the program's history by
intercepting Diondre Borel's pass in the final 5 minutes, dragging
his feet to stay inbounds near the sideline. The Sooners are only
the seventh Division I school to reach that mark, joining a handful
of powerhouses including Michigan, Texas and Notre Dame.
It certainly didn't come easy.
The Aggies had the ball with a chance to tie it when Fleming
made amends for a tough day for Oklahoma's inexperienced secondary.
The Sooners allowed Borel to throw for 341 yards while squeaking by
with their 31st straight victory at home.
