NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops says fatigue may explain why kicker Garrett Hartley has missed three extra point tries already this season.

Hartley previously had missed only two of his 100 extra-point attempts in his first two seasons at Oklahoma.

But Stoops pointed out Wednesday that Hartley's misses came after the Sooners' sixth touchdown against Miami and the seventh touchdown against both Utah State and Tulsa.

Overall, Hartley is 31-34 this season and ranks seventh in Oklahoma history with 129 extra points made in his career.

Hartley is 3-4 on field goal attempts, including a 53-yarder against Utah State that's the longest of his career.
