State of the Oklahoma Backfield: Abdul Adams and Trey Sermon emerge as dynamic duo

State of the Oklahoma Backfield: Abdul Adams and Trey Sermon emerge as dynamic duo

In a 49-41 victory over Baylor that was much closer than expected, Coach Riley showed faith in two young backs down the stretch. It’s amazing how much can change in 21 days. Only three weeks ago, in the first game of the season against UTEP, running backs Marcelias Sutton and Rodney Anderson combined for 13 carries, 66 yards rushing and two rushing touchdowns. On Saturday against Baylor, Rodney Anderson did not have a single carry while Marcelius Sutton carried the ball five times for a total of three yards. This decrease in production of Sutton and Anderson highlights a major shift in...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU holds steady at No. 3 in latest AP and Coaches Poll

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU holds steady at No. 3 in latest AP and Coaches Poll

The top-five remained the same in both polls This weekend saw four of the nation’s top five teams locked in close games in the fourth quarter, but all four were able to survive and keep their perfect records in tact. Aside from Alabama’s 59-0 beat down of Vanderbilt, none of the nation’s top teams looked particularly impressive on Saturday. That’s why it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that there was no movement at the top of either major poll this week. OU remained at No. 3 in both the AP and the Amway Coaches Polls, and that is likely where they’ll stay for at least another...
Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU survives upset scare from Baylor 49-41

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU survives upset scare from Baylor 49-41

The Sooners got their toughest test of the season so far from an unexpected opponent Oklahoma faced it’s toughest test of the season so far from an unexpected opponent. What was supposed to be an easy win turned into a dog fight that the Sooners were able to escape a near-upset from Baylor 49-41. The Bears’ 41 points were far-and-away the highest total OU has conceded all season. Baylor’s Zach Smith, who had the worst completion percentage in the nation entering the game, lit up OU’s secondary to the tune of 483 yards and 4 touchdowns. Baker Mayfield had a modest day by his...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU vs. Baylor: Game Thread, how to watch and some final thoughts

Head down to the comments section to discuss the Oklahoma game and other college football action! Happy game day, Sooner Nation! We’ve arrived at the last game of September, which will see the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners head to Waco to take on unranked Baylor. While this matchup suddenly became a “rivalry” (please don’t throw things at me) in recent years, the wackos from Waco are safely back in their old, familiar place as the Big 12’s cellar dweller, so far winless on the season, while the Sooners are back in the top 5 with everything on the line. Yikes. I’ve watched enough OU...

Oklahoma at Baylor 2017: Game preview, prediction and 6 things to know

The Oklahoma Sooners open Big 12 play Saturday night against Baylor in Waco The last time the Oklahoma Sooners traveled to Waco, they did so as an underdog. The Baylor Bears were 8-0 and the No. 4-ranked team in the country. OU was 8-1 and ranked No. 12. A sold out crowd and the College GameDay crew battled through the rain and cold to watch one of the most anticipated college football matchups of the year. Baylor quarterback Jarrett Stidham was making his second career start and his first in front of the home fans at McLane stadium. The game was within three points with under five minutes...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: 8 questions about the Baylor Bears with Craig Smoak of ESPN Central Texas

Learn a little more about the Baylor Bears before Oklahoma’s Saturday contest in Waco. When the Oklahoma Sooners visit Waco this weekend, they’ll face a Baylor Bears squad that looks quite a bit different than it has in years past. Craig Smoak of ESPN Central Texas (AM 1660 + 99.1 FM in Waco) was nice enough to fill us in on what’s been going on with the 0-3 Bears. Matt Rhule has implemented a style that is in sharp contrast to that of his predecessors. I know his team hasn't gotten off to a great start, but what's the early impression of the new regime in Waco, stylistically and...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: College Football Schedule & Gambling Picks - Week 4

There aren’t too many big battles in college football this week, but upset potential is high. Happy Thursday evening, Sooner fans! The week is winding down, and Big 12 play is closing in. The games last week looked like duds and definitely didn’t disappoint (with the exception of USC-Texas), but this week’s games are a hell of a lot more intriguing. Well, maybe they’re not “a hell of a lot” better, but it’s an improvement. Anyway, things didn’t go so well for me last week as far as gambling picks were concerned (you can check them out here for reference). A lot of folks...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Are the Baylor Bears the pushovers that we think they are?

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Are the Baylor Bears the pushovers that we think they are?

After losing three straight games, the Bears return six players from injury this week. Rewind back to the first real Saturday night of college football (not Aug. 25) — you were likely watching Alabama vs. Florida State or not watching football at all. All of a sudden, you check your phone to look at some scores from around the country. “WHAT?!?! Baylor’s losing to LIBERTY?” “Who’s Liberty?” *Googles Liberty University* “It’s a school founded by Jerry Falwell. It’s like the ORU of Virginia, I guess.” Baylor ended up losing that game, but surely it was just an...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Is David Boren retiring?

The University of Oklahoma could have a new leader in the near future. Last evening, OU Twitter was rocked by rumblings of a possible retirement announcement from David Boren.

Oklahoma Sooners - Report: OU is interested in becoming a tenant for proposed multipurpose arena

Oklahoma men’s and women’s basketball could potentially have a new home in the not-so-distant future Fan of OU basketball? Not terribly keen on the Lloyd Noble Center? Well, you might be happy to hear that the Oklahoma Sooners may have a new home for hoops games. According to a report from the Norman Transcript, the University of Oklahoma is indeed interested in being an anchor tenant for a proposed multipurpose arena, which would be located six miles north of campus near Max Westheimer Airport. The proposed arena would seat approximately 10,000 fans and would include 800 club seats,...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: JUCO products Marcelias Sutton, Marquise Brown look like contributors after all

After not playing a role at Ohio State, Oklahoma’s Marcelias Sutton and Marquise Brown were major factors against Tulane. Against Tulane, the Oklahoma offense continued to show how diverse it can be and how deep the pool of playmaking ability is. While 14 different players touched the ball on Saturday, what’s equally notable is that two of Saturday’s most prominently featured players did not record a single stat against Ohio State the previous week. These players are WR Marquise Brown and RB Marcelias Sutton, Oklahoma’s two offensive JUCO transfers from the 2017 class. Recruiting...

Oklahoma Sooners Hot Links: Heisman Trophy odds, bad officiating, Katy Perry, and more!

After Lamar Jackson was owned by Clemson, Baker Mayfield is an early leader in the Heisman Trophy race. Happy Tuesday, Sooner Nation! With the Heisman odds changing week after week, Oklahoma’s own Baker Mayfield jumped to the best odds to win (+350). Baker’s definitely earned that kind of recognition at this point, but Mason Rudolph could do himself some favors with a big performance against TCU. You can find the complete odds for the Heisman favorites here (as of 9/18). OU Links: We’re all still heated about what appeared to be a blown call on CeeDee Lamb last Saturday for...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: Sooners in the NFL - Week 2

Kenny Stills found the end zone in his 2017 debut, while Sam Bradford was a scratch in Week 2. Well whaddaya know... Sam Bradford is hurt again. The former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback, after playing the game of his NFL career in Week 1, was forced to sit out this past weekend with a knee bruise. The Vikings then predictably lost to the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Elsewhere, a few other former Sooners enjoyed better luck in Week 2. As the Miami Dolphins began their 2017 season with a 19-17 road win over the Los Angeles Chargers, deep-threat wide receiver Kenny Stills opened his season with a...
Oklahoma Sooners Football Press Conference Notes: Baker Mayfield on OU’s 2014 collapse: “I blame Katy Perry”

Oklahoma Sooners Football Press Conference Notes: Baker Mayfield on OU’s 2014 collapse: “I blame Katy Perry”

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield knows the truth about OU’s 2014 season. Oklahoma is 3-0 and enters Big 12 play as the favorite to win the conference, and the first three games have gone about as well as Lincoln Riley could have possibly hoped. Baker Mayfield has continued to be phenomenal, the defense looks much improved from a year ago and OU is getting some key contributions from new players. Riley has said several times that he wants his team looking forward, not dwelling on the past. While that may generally be a good mantra, sometimes there are certain things that simply need...
Oklahoma Sooners Football - Big 12 Power Rankings: OU holds lead as conference play begins

Oklahoma Sooners Football - Big 12 Power Rankings: OU holds lead as conference play begins

Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and TCU look good, but can anyone else challenge for the Big 12 crown? Sooner fans, the time has finally arrived to talk about the Big 12 Conference — or at least the on-field product in 2017 — in earnest. With non-conference play in the back burner for nine of the league’s 10 schools, it seems as if we finally have a large enough sample size to do some power rankings without simply basing them on preseason projections and perceptions. It’s abundantly clear that OU’s victory in Columbus was the Big 12’s best OOC win, which quite honestly is good enough...

Oklahoma Sooners Football: OU drops one spot to No. 3 in latest AP Poll

The Sooners also came in at No. 3 in the Amway Coaches Poll Oklahoma fell one spot to No. 3 in the latest AP Top 25 Poll. Clemson leapfrogged the Sooners following an impressive 47-21 win over Louisville. Oklahoma State made the jump from No. 9 to No. 6 following its 59-21 thrashing of Pitt on the road on Saturday. Kansas State’s loss to Vanderbilt dropped the Wildcats out of the rankings. That leaves just three Big 12 teams remaining in the AP Top 25 with TCU moved up four spots to No. 16. West Virginia finished No. 26 in the poll just behind LSU. The Sooners also came in at No. 3 in the...
