Sooners Notebook: Stoops talks nailbiters, freshmen

By Joey Helmer

NORMAN, Okla. — OU head coach Bob Stoops took the podium for his weekly press conference Tuesday afternoon, and he addressed some of the headlines surrounding the squad as it moves through its bye week.

One of those is the inability to put opponents away.

In four of their first five contests, the Sooners have led by at least 15 before letting the game come down to one possession.

They have won two of those by a field goal or less.
