The Oklahoma Sooners are back on the practice field this week following Saturday upset loss to Kansas State. The Sooners have another open weekend before heading to Lubbock to face Texas Tech on October 6th. This week, the Sooners are looking to answer questions and correct mistakes that lead to that 24-19 loss.
Trey Millard to for the Sooners to improve during the open date
"I think the turnovers were the key,” said OU Fullback Trey Millard. “You can never win a game when you have three turnovers and you don't get any back. I think there were some good points but there just weren’t enough of them.
"The focus right now is just moving on. We can't do anything about the game now. We've got to go to the next one and start preparing to play Texas Tech."
Millard believes the Sooners can expect a very tough and intense week of practice.
"I think so,” said Millard. “We have a lot to get corrected and to do that we have to practice hard. I think some of the little details can slide by.
“When you have a loss like this it really makes you focus on those little details. We do need to improve on those. Practice this week is going to help us do that. We have to continue to focus on those [details] and move on."
Quarterback Landry Jones seems to be the guy getting the most heat in the media and among the fans. Millard doesn’t believe that to be fair.
"We win as a team and we lose as a team,” said Millard. “There's never one player that isolated out. He had some mistakes, but everybody had mistakes. The offensive line, I did, it was across the board. You can't expect to win against a good team like that with the mistakes that we had.
"After the game [Landry] did have some words for the offense. Just that this game is done and we can still go out and win the Big 12 championship and easily win the rest of our games. Our goals are still out there. We have to focus on those and move on from this game."
On several drives, the Sooners moved the ball very impressively against the Wildcats. Millard believes that gives the Sooners some positives to build on.
"It really makes us even more disappointed in ourselves. But, disappointed because we knew that we could [move the ball]. But that also may be the silver lining, we did have some success and we need to continue to focus on what did make us successful on those drives. We have to move on from there."
Kick off for the Sooners and Red Raiders has been set for 2:35 p.m. in Lubbock on October 6th.
