(AP) — Oklahoma's powerful Sooners have scored 140 points in their last three games and bowled over six straight opponents this stretch the longest current winning streak in college football to 25 — but they haven't hit their stride yet. At least, that's the opinion of rugged co-cnptain Bo BoHnger, All-America guard candidate from Muskogee. \ "We can play loU better than ve have in any game so far this year," Bolingcr said. "I don't think we've really hit our stride." Bplinge.r contends the Sooner.s play well when they're behind in a game—but they're seldom behind. He bases that contention mainly on the Colorado game a week ago. Tlie ambitious Buffs, taking advantage of Oklahoma errors, jumped off to a two touchdown lead early in the second quarter.
