You've gone and made them mad

NORMAN, Okla. - It's 35-0 now. Jermaine Gresham has caught two passes since the last update, though his catch-to-touchdown ration, for the game anyway, suffered. Only one of the catches was for points. And that's not all.

Gresham's a huge story in this game. He's now broken OU's record for touchdown catches by a tight end in a season four different times, while in the process tying Trent Smith's mark of four in a game (that's right, in 2001, at Kansas, Smith caught four touchdown passes, a record, and had six for the season which, at the time, was also a record).

And Gresham's fourth catch carried a little more electricity than the previous three. Blame Texas A&M CB Marquis Carpenter for that.

The drive was nine plays and 83 yards and the big play was a 45-yard strike to Malcolm Kelly. Well, after that strike, Carpenter had a run in with Kelly and wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias on the very same play. All the replays seemed to point toward Carpenter being the instigator. And if the cameras didn't catch it, it was a apparent from the press box, several Aggies left the bench and entered the field of play; however, they never got past the coaches and support personnel trying to hold them back (but for just a moment, it looked like the early stages of Miami-FIU, at least on the A&M sideline).

Well, somehow, through all of that, it was OU hit with the only penalty. The guess from here is the officials saw almost nothing, but heard something Iglesias said. And the turn of events only seemed to light a fire under the Sooners, who two plays after facing first-and-25, had another first down. And just as quickly, had another touchdown.

As the fourth quarter begins, OU leads 35-0.

The yardage is up to 406.

Sam Bradford has thrown for 277 with five touchdowns and no picks.
