Oklahoma's all-time comeback to Alabama's stunning loss: Week 6 turned college football upside down

Jimbo Fisher told us this day was coming, and we laughed. We laughed because the idea that Texas A&M, fresh off back-to-back losses, would somehow end Alabama's 100-game winning streak against unranked opponents seemed ludicrous. We laughed because Nick Saban had never lost to a former assistant, a perfect 24-0. We laughed because Saban himself laughed, suggesting Fisher's prediction of an eventual win over Saban must have been in reference to golf.

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Spencer Rattler shows improvement as Sooners top Kansas State, 37-31

After experiencing another too-close-for-comfort affair, the Oklahoma Sooners improved to 5-0 on the season with a 37-31 win over the Kansas State Wildcats. Yes, OU made some mistakes in this one that made us pull our hair out, but the performance of QB Spencer Rattler should give fans a bit more reason for optimism entering the Red River Shootout/Showdown/Rivalry/Whatever against the Texas Longhorns.

Oklahoma Sooners Football: How opponents are mitigating the effectiveness of OU’s defensive line

Once a laughingstock, the Oklahoma Sooners now have a defense that probably qualifies as, at minimum, good. Through four games in 2021, OU is allowing 16 points per contest. Even if the unit’s performance drops the rest of the season, the Sooners will probably cut their average points per game down from the 2020 mark of 21.7. If you want to get more esoteric, OU ranks 25th nationally in Defensive SP+, an opponent-adjusted measure of efficiency. Keep in mind the Sooners ranked 84th in 2018, the season before Alex Grinch took over as defensive coordinator.

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU wins Nebraska’s way

From the opening drive of Saturday’s game against the Oklahoma Sooners, the Nebraska Cornhuskers made their intentions known. Defensively, coordinator Erik Chinander would not get beat by OU throwing deep. The Huskers routinely played 2-4-5 personnel, showing OU soft zones in coverage with deep safeties. The NU cornerbacks also gave the OU receivers generous cushions.

Oklahoma football: Trouble in Sooners’ offense is real

Every Sooner fan is well aware by now that the much heralded Oklahoma football offense is not performing up to expectations thus far this season. Although at first dismissed as first-game adrenaline rush and lingering offseason rustiness, the Sooners offensive ineptitude has now evolved into a more serious concern. Is...

Why has Oklahoma struggled in the deep passing game?

Oklahoma’s reputation as an explosive offense is well documented. This season though, that’s not been the case. There’s still time. Big 12 play starts this weekend at night at home against a decent West Virginia defense. The fans recognize it, the media recognizes it, and it wouldn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you that head coach and play-caller Lincoln Riley recognizes it. The offense doesn’t look right.
