The Sooners were about due to win a game like this. After losing some games in the dying moments earlier in the season, the Sooners held on to win a thriller in Week 7, 45-40 over the Twin Cities Predators. It was by far the highest scoring game of the Sooners' season. Ottawa has now won 4 straight, improving their record to 4 and 3 on the season.
The Sooners appeared to have full control of the game in the fourth when Mat Mondoux scored on a 35 yard touchdown run. That gave Ottawa a 42-27 lead with 11 minutes to go. However, there was still plenty of fight left in the Predators, who stormed downfield for a pair of majors. Down by 5, Twin Cities got the ball in Sooner territory in the final minute but this time the Sooner defence came up big, stopping the drive and preserving the victory.
