Underdog OU comes up big over Bama

(Continued)

NEW ORLEANS —

It didn’t matter when the confetti starting raining down on the Superdome late Thursday night. The Sooners, who have a well-chronicled history of BCS busts over the last decade, were celebrating one of the biggest wins in the program history.

Stoops didn’t want to label it, but fully understood Thursday’s performance was the shot of momentum it’s been waiting on for several seasons.

The string of 10-3 seasons were over along with the notion that the Sooners couldn’t win a major bowl against an SEC powerhouse.

“And so with as many young players as we have and inexperience we came into the season to start with and the guys we have coming back to the recruiting class we’ve got coming in, we’ve got a chance to really start, to continue to be special, and that’s what we’re going to keep trying to do,” Stoops said.

After Thursday night’s win, anything seems possible. Stoops and the Sooners both got their mojo back.
