If they make it through that gauntlet, would...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Another High-Stakes Bedlam for the Big 12

For the second year in a row, the battle for the state also decides the conference champion. OU is 3-2 in its’ last five matchups against the Cowboys, with last year’s blowout win in Stillwater propelling the Sooners into the College Football Playoff. The same stakes are in play this season, and in two weeks the winner of Bedlam will be crowned league champion and at worst earn a berth in a New Year’s Six Bowl game. In OU’s case, a win in Norman on December 3 could mean a trip to a second-straight playoff berth if a few other things fall into place elsewhere in the country. Oklahoma...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: A Claim to the QB Crown

In less than two seasons, Baker Mayfield is making a strong case that he’s the best quarterback in Oklahoma history. As good as you think Baker Mayfield is, he’s probably even better. He started at Texas Tech. Then he sat out a year at Oklahoma. Before he took the field for his first career start for the Sooners, Baker Mayfield was already two years behind the pace in his pursuit to leave a mark on the program. He didn't waste any time. In his season running point for OU's offense, Mayfield eradicated all doubt that he may not have been the right man for the job. He threw for...

Notes from Stoops’ Presser: Dimon No Longer with Team, Alternate Unis for West Virginia Game

Although Matt Dimon seemed close to returning from injury, it was revealed that his career his now over at OU It was a great weekend! Chaos across the board in college football, the Sooners won against some football team from Waco, and we all survived another rooster kickoff. Well done, everybody. It’s been an awful year for injuries around the nation, but not many teams feel it more than the Sooners. An already thin defensive line just got even thinner with this surprise news from Stoops: Matt Dimon will not be back this year, ending his career. Charles Walker meets with trainers...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Bears Blowout

With both star rushers back and healthy, the Sooners stayed undefeated in Big 12 play by beating Baylor on Saturday. Will the Baylor Bears win another game all season? Jim Grobe’s team committed mindless penalties, turned the ball over at crucial times and lost its starting quarterback to a gruesome leg injury en route to a 45-24 drubbing in Norman. The Sooners, while not exactly dominant, rode their two star running backs and the nation’s best receiver to an offensive output that Baylor, a program in utter turmoil, couldn’t hope to keep up with. Oklahoma controlled the early stages...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: A Baylor Beatdown (and Pre-Game Final Thoughts)

The bad apples from Waco head to Norman for a football lesson from the good guys. Plus game picks Let me preface by saying I believe hate of any type is quite unhealthy…except when it comes to sports. So, I feel we’re all on the same wavelength when I say I HATE BAYLOR FOOTBALL. The over/under is 80 with the line favoring OU by 17 for this potential shootout in Soonerland. The spread may seem a bit high but after running backs D'Onta Foreman and Kyle Hicks took turns shredding the Bears’ run defense, which ranks 101st nationally, then it’s only fitting the nation’s best backfield...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: In Year of Upsets, Sooners to CFP Would Be Biggest

Apparently, anything is possible. So can the Sooners still make the CFP? It’s 2016, and nothing makes sense any more. Left is right. Up is down. The Cavaliers are NBA champions. The Cubs won the World Series. Donald Trump, best known for killing the USFL and firing people on a reality TV show, is about to become the president of the United States. If we’ve learned anything this year, it’s that no one knows what they’re talking about and anything can happen. So can a two-loss team—like, say, Oklahoma—make the College Football Playoff? I ask only because, despite widespread belief...

Christian James led the way with 16 points for the Sooners The Sooners faced a Washburn team that had already faced some serious competition in the Kansas Jayhawks and Kansas State Wildcats, but they were able to come out on top by a score of 84-64.
