Oklahoma Football: Winners and Losers from the Sooners' Win vs. Missouri

The Oklahoma Sooners looked like they were poised to lay an egg and give up their No. 1 ranking after falling behind to the Missouri Tigers, 14-3, in the first quarter.

Luckily, the Sooners remembered why they were ranked No. 1 in the first place.  The Sooners scored 28 unanswered points to take a 31-14 lead, and by that point, the game was in the bag.

Still, the Sooners left the game with some definite questions to be answered. Their mostly underwhelming performance, coupled with LSU's dominating victory at West Virginia, resulted in the Sooners giving up their No. 1 ranking anyway.

Personally, I don't know if that's such a bad thing.

LSU deserves to be ranked No. 1 after their impressive start to the season, so there are no complaints there. However, by dropping to No. 2 in the rankings, the Sooners have ultimately taken the "No. 1" target off their back.

In order to keep their No. 2 ranking, though, the Sooners will have to get more help from their defense than they did on Saturday against Missouri.

With that being said, here are the winners and losers from the Sooners' weekend victory.
