COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Allen Patrick ran for a career high 173 yards and #18 Oklahoma sealed a 17-16 victory Saturday night over #21 Texas A&M by converting a 4th & inches from its own 29 with 1:29 remaining.
The Sooners won their fourth straight in coach Bob Stoops' 100th game at Oklahoma and broke 4 game winning streak by the Aggies.
The Aggies (8-2, 4-2 Big 12) had a chance to get the ball back when Oklahoma (7-2, 4-1) came up a couple of inches short on 3rd down late in the 4th quarter.
Paul Thompson's second effort on a sneak gave Oklahoma the 1st down, but the play ended up being moot. Texas A&M, home of the 12th man, was called for having 12 men on the field, giving the Sooners a 1st down and the ability to run out the clock.
Patrick now has 440 yards in the 3 games since replacing Adrian Peterson, who is out with a broken collarbone.
