After immaturity left him short of expectations as a young Sooner, Oklahoma defensive end R.J. Washington has changed his outlook to positive reviews.
The Sooners have been outscored 507-418 in the second half of their 13 conference games and can look back at poor second half performances as the reason for several losses including Kansas, Texas Tech and, most recently, Texas.
The Sooners started out conference play with back-to-back blowout losses, and now need to get back on the track against Oklahoma State.
The Oklahoma defense has allowed 16 plays of 40 yards or more this season
Oklahoma's defensive backs gave up 452 passing yards to Texas Tech's Seth Doege
