OU’s Bary Holleyman recovered the fumble, but the Sooners couldn’t convert the mishap into points. Minutes later, however, KU running back Reggie Duncan lost a fumble and OU converted that gaffe into a 38-yard field goal by Tim Duncan. ” l With under a minute remaining in the first quarter, KU wide receiver Termaine Fulton appeared to fumble out of bounds after making a reception, but the officials ruled OU’s Brandon Moore had recovered on the field, although the Megavision replay seemed to show otherwise and the crowd booed. KU dodged that bullet, however, when Algie Atkinson blocked Duncan’s 34-yard field goal attempt. “
