Sooners play annual spring game

The Red team will be eating a steak dinner this week after posting a 20-14 win over the White in Oklahoma’s annual Red/White spring game. Members of the losing team will spend that same meal dining on hot dogs.

Drew Allen quarterbacked the winning team, completing 16-of-29 passes for 179 yards and one touchdown and one interception.

The White drew first blood on a 40-yard field goal by Michael Hunnicutt with 7:30 remaining in the first period. The Red answered with a 16-yard pass from Allen to Dejuan Miller. Miller, coming back off a knee injury, hauled in six passes for 62 yards.

The Red upped the lead to 14-3 with 1:04 left in the first when Brennan Clay ripped off an 11-yard run.

Hunnicutt opened the second quarter scoring when he added a 36-yard field goal, but the Red answered before the half with a 28-yard field goal from Jimmy Stevens.

Neither team scored again until the fourth quarter when the White got a 17-yard pass play from Blake Bell to Trey Franks. The team added a two-point conversion to cut the margin to 17-14, but Jimmy Stevens tacked on a 25-yarder for the Red with 3:24 left to end the scoring.

Bell, who took snaps with both teams, finished the game 11-of-24 for 76 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Franks caught seven passes for 54 yards.

The top rusher in the game was Derrick Whaley, who topped the White team with 10 attempts for 65 yards. The Red team leader was Clay with 12 rushes for 59 yards.

The game’s leading tackler was White team defensive back Aaron Colvin with eight. He also had an interception. The Red team was led in tackles by Sam Proctor and Jayden Bird with five each.

Sooner All-America wide receiver Ryan Broyles saw his only action fielding punts. Quarterback Landry Jones played only the early portion of the game. He was 6-of-11 for 40 yards with one interception.

A crowd of 25,598 saw the game. The Sooners will conclude their spring practices with a final workout on Tuesday.
