Stoops and Sooners are really good at bouncing back

Oklahoma beat Kansas State 55-0 Saturday and coach Bob Stoops still hasn’t lost back-to-back regular season games since 1999.

"Fortunately," we’ve had good players and coaches," Stoops told the Oklahoman after the win in Manhattan, Kan. "Overall, we haven’t lost a lot. What that happens, we’ve been able to respond and come back and play well. I can’t say it’s any one thing. It’s just guys responding in practice and improving and being ready to play."

OU’s biggest win under Stoops after a loss was a 64-0 victory over Idaho State in 2009 after losing the season-opener to BYU.

OU’s biggest conference win after a loss came against Iowa State, 59-14 after losing to Kansas State a season ago. OU also smashed Texas A&M in 1999, 51-6, after losing to Texas.
