DeMarco Murray gained a total of 148 yards
and scored three touchdowns to help No. 7 Oklahoma hold off a late
charge from Air Force's overpowering run game to beat the Falcons
27-24 on Saturday.
Murray ran for a 5-yard touchdown and scored on a 17-yard screen
pass in the third quarter as the Sooners (3-0) reeled off 17
straight points to pull away after Air Force (2-1) had tied it
early in the second half.
That ended up being just enough to hold off a late charge by the
Jared Tew and Kyle Halderman had rushing TDs in the fourth
quarter for Air Force, but Oklahoma was able to pick up two first
downs and run out the final 3:39.
The Falcons ran for 351 yards, but the Sooners still extended
the nation's longest home winning streak to 33.
