Nike unveils new Red River threads for Sooners

MOORE —

“It is all based on Jordan (Phillips’) status for Saturday,” defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. “We have to wait and see what our rotation will be.”

Cotton Bowl memories: Stoops will lead OU against Texas for the 15th Saturday. But he said he didn’t have a favorite memory from the first 14 games.

“Any of the ones you win. I love them all. When you win, of course,” he said. “When you win big, in those instances you get to enjoy the fourth quarter a little more. But what’s more exciting than Roy Williams jumping over at the goal line and forcing a turnover to win the game? Those are fun. We had a shutout one time. Anytime you win it’s special. You always remember certain plays from those wins.”

OU-Kansas will begin at 2:30 p.m.: The Big 12 Conference announced Monday that the football game between the University of Oklahoma and Kansas on Oct. 19 is slated to kick off at 2:30 p.m. at Kansas Memorial Stadium.

The contest will be broadcast by ABC or ESPN or ESPN2.

Falling despite wins: Oklahoma dropped one spot in the Associated Press Top 25 Sunday to No. 12 after Saturday night’s 20-17 victory over TCU. The Sooners remained at No. 10 in the latest USA Today coaches poll.

As for the Big 12 Conference, it still has four ranked teams. Baylor is at No. 15 in both polls. Texas Tech remained at No. 20 for the second straight week in the AP poll and moved up to No. 21 with the coaches.

Oklahoma State holds down the 20th spot in the coaches poll and is No. 22 in the AP Top 25.

Beginning next Sunday, the polls will take a backseat to the BCS standings. The first BCS rankings of the season will be released then.

Protecting the ball: Technically, OU’s streak of games without committing a turnover ended when it failed to recover a pooch kick in the third quarter against TCU. However, OU’s offense has not committed a turnover since the West Virginia game and the streak is the longest since 2004.
