Sooners exorcises history with long overdue victory over ND



Sophomore Trevor Knight didn’t play in last year’s game and was barley in kindergarten when the Sooners lost in South Bend in 1999. But he still realizes what this victory means.

“It’s a huge win,” Knight said. “For one, going on the road and getting our first road win of the year. Also the tradition of these schools. They came in and beat us in our house last year. So coming up here and getting a big win, it’s huge. Huge for our program, huge for our confidence. If you go through out the season, there are those signature wins that you have to pick up.”

However, for Julian Wilson the win was just another stepping stone in getting Oklahoma back to where he believes it belongs.

“Really we just need to keep working to get OU where it deserves to be,” Wilson said. “Right now we are the underdogs and we take that as disrespect to that. People don’t respect us as players, as a team. We just come out there with a chip on our shoulder.”

While all of the players admit beating Notre Dame was big and special, they don’t have time to rest on their laurels.

“It’s huge for us,” senior Aaron Colvin said. “We know about the tradition in this game and how they’ve kind of dominated throughout this series. It felt good to get the win. We will enjoy it for just Saturday, then we are going to get ready for TCU.”
