Oklahoma 52, Ball State 14
After a disappointing showing against Missouri, the Sooners defense plays angry. Linebackers Travis Lewis and Tom Wort lead the way as OU takes out its frustration on the Ball State running game, forcing the Cardinals to pass on almost every down after the first quarter. That leads to three interceptions, which the Sooners convert into 21 of their 52 points.

Pick to click: Dejuan Miller shows that he's going to be a force on the OU offense the rest of the season. Miller catches six passes, including one TD, and his fierce blocking downfield helps open up big runs for Dominique Whaley.
