It was a thrilling game as the Oklahoma Sooners rallied from as many as 21 points down to beat the Texas Longhorns in the 117th matchup between the bitter rivals. The game was full of highlights on both sides. Texas’ Casey Thompson, Bijan Robinson and Xavier Worthy put on a show against an Oklahoma Sooners defense that struggled in the first half before settling and getting stops in the second half.
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.

The college football landscape has officially shifted. Thanks in part to Texas A&M’s shocking 41-38 upset win over No. 1 Alabama and a thrilling Red River Showdown between Oklahoma and Texas, there was quite a bit of movement in Sunday’s USA Today coaches poll. Thanks to the Aggies, Alabama fell...
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.
Most of the Oklahoma football recruiting news in recent weeks has been about the 2023 class, but there is a lot of optimism brewing there could be some big news coming for the Sooners regarding their top-15 rated 2022 class. Gentry Williams, a four-star, in-state cornerback recruit has narrowed his...

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.
Think next weekend’s Oklahoma football rivalry game with Texas doesn’t mean something a little more this year?. ESPN’s “College GameDay” program thinks it does. The popular sports network announced on Sunday that it will host it’s Saturday morning college football preview show from the Texas State Fair in Dallas, Texas, site of the 117th edition of the Red River Showdown between Oklahoma and Texas.
It’s been a rough start to the season for the Oklahoma Sooners offense. Sure, they scored 76 against Western Carolina and 40 against Tulane, but a deeper look at the game against the Green Wave reveals some deeper issues. The Sooners settled for five field goals against Tulane. Even in...
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.
As in the latest USA TODAY AFCA Coaches poll, the No. 6 Oklahoma Sooners found a team leaping them in the AP Top 25 Poll. While they didn’t fall in this week’s AP poll, they did get jumped by a team coming up to fill in the top five spot vacated by Oregon after its loss to Stanford.
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...
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.
The Oklahoma Sooners have come under fire in 2021 for the lack of impressive wins on their undefeated resume. At 5-0, the Sooners are one of the best teams in the country despite four one-score wins over FBS competition. Even though they keep winning, they keep sliding or getting jumped...
