Akron's Head Coach Terry Bowden | "We'll Name A Starting QB On Game Day"

Throughout the press conference leading up to the game against the Oklahoma Sooners, head coach of the Akron Zips, Terry Bowden remained adamant about naming a starting quarterback on game day. "We kind of know what we're going to get with Kyle [Pohl]", a two-year starter, "that's good at times and bad at times" according to the head coach. "Tra'von Chapman you don't know quite what you're going to get. There's a real good upside and there are chances for mistakes for a guy that hasn't started at the D-1 level." As far as the running backs go, Bowden said "I don't think we have one guy...

What To Expect From Oklahoma’s Offense vs Akron

For those fans eager to see Lincoln Riley's offense unveiled, you might have to wait another two weeks. By that I mean that the Sooners will probably want to beat Akron convincingly without showing too much of their new offense before they travel to Knoxville the following week to play Tennessee. The Sooners are more likely to display the air raid against the Volunteers than the Zips. But you'll still be able to see some of the new offense this Saturday. Here's what to expect from the Sooners offense when they kick off this weekend. Lots of Joe Mixon - The highly touted recruit out of high...

Akron Zips at Oklahoma Sooners Football | Bob Stoops Press Conference Recap

We are days away from the season opener against the Akron Zips in Norman, Oklahoma. As usual, Bob Stoops started the week with a press conference to address the upcoming contest. Of the first issues addressed, the Oklahoma Sooners stated Austin Seibert, a true freshman with a strong leg, would take over on field goals and punts. That leaves Nick Hodgson as the kickoff specialist.

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 5 Days!

A former four star recruit from St. Louis Missouri, not many thought we would have to wait four years for Durron Neal to have a breakout season. But heading into his senior season with just three touchdowns in his career, it seems like Neal's senior season should be his best one by a mile. Especially with a new pass-heavy offense. Neal seemed to always shine best when no one else was, scoring a touchdown in the Kansas State and Baylor game of last season. This year, he should look to find more consistency in games. Consistency was the biggest issue with Neal last season, who would seemingly...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football | First Look At The Akron Zips

The Akron Zips head into the 2015 season with high hopes. After a disappointing 5-7 finish a year ago, the program looks to rebound. Picked to finish second in the MAC East Division, the Zips certainly have a vote of confidence from those familiar with the league. Offensive First Look With the implementation of a new offense, Coach Terry Bowden opted for closed practices and should lean on an offensive line that returns three experienced starters. However, the team's leading rusher over the past four years, Jawon Chisholm must be replaced. Akron may very well look to two backs to carry the...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 6 Days!

It still hasn't sunk in that Baker Mayfield is the new quarterback for Oklahoma. After all just a season ago we thought Trevor Knight would be a four year starter for the Sooners. Fast forward a year later, and Mayfield has the job locked up heading into the 2015 season. The former Texas Tech walk-on won the 2013 Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year award but sat out all of last season because of transfer rules and lost a season of eligibility too because he transferred from one Big 12 school to another. Mayfield was the favorite all offseason, but no one was certain until Bob Stoops...

The Ideal Finish for Offensive Line in Class of 2016

Logan Roberson sits as the Sooners lone commitment along the offensive line for the class of 2016. While that will certainly change before National Signing Day, I thought it might be a good idea to take a look at the ideal (yet still somewhat realistic) players to finish out the class of 2016. 1. 4* OG JohnCarlo Valentin 6-5.340 from Philadelphia, PA. JohnCarlo would be a massive commitment for the Sooners. Holding offers from the Sooners and schools such as ASU, Auburn, Michigan, South Carolina, UCLA, and VTech show how highly sought after Valentin is. JohnCarlo announced on twitter that...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 7 Days!

Since 1950, the Oklahoma Sooners have laid claim to seven national championships. The most recent came under Bob Stoops during the BCS era. An unheralded team leaned heavily upon a stout defense en route to an undefeated season. Climbing the polls, Oklahoma found themselves in the national conversation facing Heisman winning quarterback, Chris Weinke and the Florida State Seminoles in the Orange Bowl. As an 11 point dog, the Sooners shocked the college football world by holding the 'Noles scoreless on offense and riding the defense to an 11 point win. Linebacker, Torrance Marshall took...

Final Piece at Defensive Back for Class of 2016?

As we close in on the beginning of the football season, we are also starting to be able to piece together the different players that will also make up the class of 2016. New Defensive Backs coach Kerry Cooks has all but locked up what appears to be his first class for the Sooners. As we head into the season it appears the Sooners will only have one additional scholarship available in the defensive backfield.* The suitors for this lone scholarship appear to have been narrowed down to 2 individual players. 1. Obi Eboh 6-1/180 from Southlake, TX Eboh stars at one of the elite high school...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 9 Days!

Although Trevor Knight failed to win the starting quarterback position, he still holds the respect of the his fellow teammates. Now a team captain for the second consecutive season, Knight takes on a bit of a different role as the backup quarterback. The quarterback has started fifteen games over the course of his young career. Plagued by injury, most fans will remember Knight for a single post season outing. In this most memorable performance, Knight dismantled a vaunted Alabama Crimson Tide defense throwing for four touchdowns and 348 yards on 34-44 passing attempts. The effort earned...

Kirk Herbstreit Predicts Oklahoma to Make College Football Playoff

This time last year, almost every major analyst and preseason publication had Oklahoma in their projected playoff. This offseason almost no one has even had the Sooners in their top 15, much less the playoff itself. But one of ESPN's most famous college football analyst predicted this morning that the Sooners would find themselves in the playoff as the number three spot. That analyst was none other than Kirk Herbstreit, one of college football's familiar faces due to his appearance on College Gameday. He also selected Ohio State, LSU, and Arizona State as the other teams to make it in. He...
