NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Malcolm Kelly, Manuel Johnson and Juaquin Iglesias are at the receiving end of one of Oklahoma's lowest passing totals since the wishbone era.

The three roommates caught Oklahoma's only passes in a 17-to-16 win against Texas A-and-M two weeks ago when the Sooners had their lowest passing total since 1997 _ only 39 yards.

Iglesias says the total shocked and surprised the three, and they agreed to not let it happen again.

Kelly led the charge against Texas Tech last week with 153 yards on a career-high 11 catches.

Johnson also had career bests with six receptions and 87 yards before he was injured early in the fourth quarter, and Iglesias added three catches for 22 yards.

The number 16 Sooners racked up 309 yards through the air for their biggest passing game since 2004.
