Oklahoma Sooners Football: Buy the D.J. Graham interception t-shirt and hoodie

With the Nebraska Cornhuskers threatening to score, it was time for Alex Grinch’s defense to buckle down and get a stop. The Oklahoma Sooners did just that, and a miraculous interception from D.J. Graham served as the exclamation point. It will go down as one of the greatest interceptions in the history of the sport and one of the coolest highlights in OU football history.

'He never messes up': Sooners' Drake Stoops carving role in OU offense as 'hardest worker'

Oklahoma didn't need its fastest, strongest or tallest player to pick up some of its longest pass plays against Nebraska last Saturday. Instead, it got 2-of-3 such plays from Drake Stoops, a 5-foot-10 former walk-on receiver who came up big in his team-first role, despite missing the season-opener against Tulane for “medical reasons.” OU fans have become accustomed to his blue-collar performance since he earned seven starts last season.

OU football: Lincoln Riley believes Sooners nearing stride, says team needs ‘to be a little better’ as Big 12 play begins

Lincoln Riley doesn’t think Oklahoma’s 3-0 start has been perfect. In his weekly press conference on Tuesday, the head coach didn’t shy away from the Sooners’ rocky nonconference performances. In its first three games, OU needed a fourth-down stop to escape Tulane, looked unstoppable in a 76-point win over Western Carolina, then avoided a late surge by Nebraska.

Watch Now: OU epidemiologist estimates delta variant pushed state's population immunity to 78%, doesn't expect COVID-19 uptick until winter

About 78% of the state’s population probably has immunity against COVID-19 after vaccination or natural infection — but don’t take that level of protection for granted, a University of Oklahoma epidemiologist said Tuesday.

The Athens food we love

When you graduate from Ohio University, you leave with new skills to help you succeed in the real world, a degree to show for all the hours of hard work, a sense of relief that you finally have reached the finish line of school … and an obsession with Bagel Street Deli (a liking that proves you're a well-seasoned OU alum).

Neal Brown looking back at VT, ahead to OU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — From the frying pan into the fire. After holding on for a 27-21 victory over No. 15 Virginia Tech this past weekend, West Virginia’s next assignment is even tougher, as it is at No. 3 Oklahoma (3-0) Saturday night. “It was a great win. I think rivalries...

Oklahoma football: Former Sooners star all over the field in NFL Week 2

The influence of Oklahoma football is widespread throughout the NFL, and offensive players shined yet again in Week 2. But before the offensive players get their due, former Sooner linebacker Kenneth Murray proved he is a major part of the Los Angeles Charger defensive unit. K9, as he was known at OU (the combination of his first initial and jersey number), had seven tackles on Sunday, including five solo, along with one tackle for loss in a game in which he sat out for a short period due to an injury.

Vokolek's return a necessary boost for Husker offense

Hair flowing in the wind, hands outstretched, Travis Vokolek wasn't going to let his first big play opportunity of the 2021 season slip through his fingers. A guy who missed the first three games with injury sure needed that, securing a 38-yard catch that set up Nebraska's first touchdown against Oklahoma. And the Huskers sure need Vokolek.
