NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Paul Thompson threw two touchdown passes to Malcolm Kelly, and Adrian Peterson ran for 165 yards and two scores as Number 15 Oklahoma beat Washington 37-20.
Thompson broke a 13-13 tie on OU's first possession of the second half yesterday when he found Kelly racing down the right side of the field for a 35-yard touchdown to put the Sooners ahead for the first time. Garrett Hartley made it 23-13 with his third field goal of the day.
The Huskies had a chance to pull closer when Chris Stevens forced a fumble by Thompson that Scott White recovered at the Oklahoma four, but Washington quarterback Isaiah Stanback fumbled on the next play.
Thompson and Kelly hooked up again for a 42-yard pickup on the ensuing drive, and Peterson scored on a 17-yard run on the next play.
Thompson finished with 272 yards on 21-33 passing with one interception, and Kelly had a career-high 121 yards on six catches.
Louis Rankin led Washington with 112 yards on 17 carries, and Stanback was 9-22 for 139 yards.
