Oklahoma football: Sooners still have several bowl possibilities

By Jason KerseyNORMAN — Oklahoma began the season with national championship aspirations, but after a second loss last weekend, players and coaches acknowledge the College Football Playoff is virtually off the table. A series of remarkable, highly unlikely events would have to occur — and OU would have to win out, which will be no easy task — for the Sooners to get back into the mix. “We told our kids that at this time of year, we have to continue to play well, whether we were undefeated or we’re in the situation that we’re in now,” said co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell.Read...

Oklahoma football notebook: Cody Thomas' brief appearance shows promise

BY RYAN ABER AND JASON KERSEYSooner backup quarterback Cody Thomas only had a couple of garbage-time series under his belt before starter Trevor Knight went down with an apparent shoulder injury Saturday. With the game scoreless, Thomas came in and led the Sooners right down the field for a touchdown in what became a 31-30 Oklahoma loss. Thomas got help from a 42-yard run by Alex Ross on the drive but then completed a pair of passes to Sterling Shepard to keep the drive moving. Probably Thomas’ most impressive play, though, came on second and 2 from the Kansas State 7.Read more on NewsOK.com

OU football: Oklahoma's exit from the College Football Playoff sealed with a kick

By Jenni CarlsonNORMAN — Michael Hunnicutt made a beeline from the sideline to the locker room as the final seconds ticked off the clock, his head down, his helmet on. Couldn’t see his face or his eyes. Couldn’t see his disappointment either. On a day Oklahoma had many a problem — an interception that went for a touchdown, a defense that gave up four plays of whopping 38 yards or more, a coaching staff that continued to have to take timeouts because it didn’t have the right personnel on the field — the Sooners were still a chip shot field goal from beating Kansas State.Read more...

OU football notebook: Aaron Ripkowski's ejection, Blake Bell's injury hurt Sooners in short-yardage situations

BY RYAN ABER AND JASON KERSEY, Staff WritersFullback Aaron Ripkowski doesn’t exactly light up the stat sheet, but the senior is a critical piece to Oklahoma’s offense.

Ripkowski’s ejection came after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Kansas State defensive end Ryan Mueller as Ripkowski was protecting Trevor Knight on a play where Knight gained three yards. The ejection especially hurt the...
