Sooner Nation Podcast | Where Does This Loss Rank On Your All-Time Pain Level?

We'll be trying something new with this podcast and using Google Hangouts. Please feel free to make fun of us. Kansas State came and did exactly what they intended to. They won! For Oklahoma fans it was about as crushing of a blow as the come, but where does it rank on your all-time list of home losses? Use the media player to listen to the podcast live, beginning at 6:30 PM (ET) As for the game itself, I think we have some differing opinions on the offensive and defensive performances so you can look for a steady debate. We'll also tell you why Michael Hunnicutt is not the scapegoat...

Oklahoma Sooners Drop To #18 In Both Polls After Home Loss

Once again, with the season on the line, the Florida St. Seminoles find a way to win amid controversy.

Oklahoma Sooners Defense Bends But Refuses To Break In 31-30 Loss

The outcome of each game hinges on a few crucial plays. Attacking the defense from all angles, the Kansas St. Wildcats put pressure on their opposition to come up with a game changing play. Unfortunately, the Oklahoma Sooners fell short on multiple opportunities as Bill Snyder pulled out a second win, this time 31-30, in as many trips. "They are ridiculously well coached and efficient. There are only so many things you can do and Jake Waters is an incredible player and Tyler Lockett and the way they run the football," Mike Stoops said after the game. "It is tough match-up and you can see...

Solid Performance By Oklahoma's Offense Isn't Enough To Overcome Mistakes In 31-30 Loss To Kansas State

They say that in football you're either lucky or you're good. That wasn't quite the case in Norman on Saturday as Kansas State was both. The Wildcats capitalized on two Oklahoma turnovers and three special teams' miscues to upset the 11th ranked Sooners 31-30. Perhaps lost in Saturday's setback was Oklahoma's best offensive performance during the month of October. The Sooners passed for 335 yards and ran for 198 more against the Big 12's best run defense. They posted 30 points on the board and had a 7-11 mark on third downs. All of those are improvements over the previous couple of weeks...

A Special Defeat: KSU defeats the Sooners 31-30 - Post Game Thread

This was a game that OU had every opportunity to win, but didn't. How did it come to this? Crimson and Cream machine will have much more in the way of post game coverage, but needless to say this loss stings. Here are some quick snap thoughts after a heartbreaking 31-30 loss. 1. Trevor Knight outside of 1 terrible throw, played a great football game. 2. Sterling Shepard is the best WR in college football. 3. Alex Ross played great at RB today. 4. Alex Ross also completely changes the way teams kick off to the Sooners. 5. Not sure if a celebrity singer said she had a crush on Hunnicutt,...

Oklahoma Sooners Quarterback Trevor Knight Injured Fullback Ripkowski Ejected In First Quarter Against Kansas State

Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was off to a solid start in Saturday afternoon against #14 Kansas State. The Sooner fans worst nightmare unfolded before their eyes as Knight took a shot to the back while diving at the end of a running play. Before that point, Knight was 4-for-4 before the injury. Back up quarterback Cody Thomas finished the drive for the Sooners which ended on a Samaje Perine touchdown run. Knight came back in on the next drive. Oklahoma fullback Aaron Ripkowski was also ejected on the same play for a targeting call on a block of Wildcats linebacker Ryan Mueller. The...

Friday Locks, The Late Night Version | The Irish Will Cover!

We like ND and the 12.points they're getting from FSU! Name Last Week Season Matt 2-1 12-8-1 St. Sooner 1-2 9-12 Donnie 0-3 8-13 Rich 0-3 7-14 St. Sooner Gimme DUKE and the 3.0 over Virginia.  I actually don't care a white about this game, I just wanted to try out the novel feeling of predicting Duke will win a football game. I'm sadly going to take LSU (-10) at home over Kentucky, although it pains me.  The silver lining that I see, though, is that the line is narrowing.  (Full disclosure, my mom's a UK grad.)

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Three Keys To Victory Over Kansas St. Wildcats

The #14 Kansas St. Wildcats make a return trip to Norman to face the #11 Oklahoma Sooners in what should prove to one to remember. In 2012, Bill Snyder led the squad into what many considered to be the toughest place to play and escaped with a 24-19 win. Can the Wizard pull off an upset once again over Bob Stoops? Oklahoma Sooners Keys To Victory Run The Ball Oklahoma has been exposed as a team that must run the ball in order to be successful on the field. Over the past three games, opposing programs have stacked the box and dared Trevor Knight to throw consistently. Unfortunately, the idea...

Oklahoma Sooners Football | Bold Prediction: KSU QB Jake Waters Has Career Day In Norman

Over the years, Bob Stoops and the Oklahoma Sooners have struggled to defend mobile quarterbacks. This season has failed to portray a different a different picture as two quarterbacks have set career highs against this Sooner defense. (Let me remind you that those career games have both come outside of Norman.) Now, hosting the Kansas St. Wildcats, the coaching staff once again finds themselves preparing the team for just that...a dual-threat quarterback in Jake Waters. Trevone Boykin Sets Career High 395 All-Purpose Yards Two career highs have been set by opposing quarterbacks already...

Opponent Q&A | Talkin' Oklahoma And Kansas State Football With Bring On The Cats

Friday brings us face-to-face with an opponent blogger and stepping up this week is Curtis Kitchen from SB Nation's Bring on the Cats. Let's talk some football! CCM: Quarterback Jake Waters leads the team in both passing and rushing yards. What have been the keys to his success this season? BOTC: K-State's system has always been QB-stat friendly, and this year - not surprisingly - isn't any different. Waters, like many guys before him, has grown comfortable in what the system asks from him - namely pre-snap reads. He has always been a great passer, but his work this past offseason with...

Kansas State Wildcats At Oklahoma Sooners | What To Expect From The OU Defense

Oklahoma's defense has been put to the test over the last two weeks. Career days have been the norm for quarterbacks facing Oklahoma's defense over the last couple of weeks. On October fourth TCU's Trevone Boykin produced 395 all-purpose yards in the Frogs' 37-33 upset win over the Sooners. Seven days later Tyrone Swoopes passed for a career-high 334 yards in OU's 31-26 win over Texas at the Cotton Bowl. Now Oklahoma faces Kansas State and Jake Waters who leads an offense that is averaging 40.8 points per game. Waters is completing 65% of his passes this season but also leads Kansas State...

MBB | Preseason Coaches' Poll Features Oklahoma Sooners At No. 19

Heading into last season, the Oklahoma Sooners failed to receive a single vote in the preseason coaches' poll. After consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance finishing ranked No. 27, others across the nation are starting to take notice. Fast forward to this year as Lon Kruger and his squad are featured inside the top twenty-five at No. 19 in the preseason. While there is a top ten opponent making the journey to the Bahamas for the Battle 4 Atlantis in North Carolina, there is no guarantee the Sooners face the Tarheels in the tournament. That leaves Oklahoma matched up against unranked teams...

Kansas State Wildcats At Oklahoma Sooners | What To Expect From The OU Offense

The Sooners need to continue to be creative on offense. Oklahoma can't afford to not be creative on offense Saturday morning when they kickoff against Kansas State. The Wildcats lead the Big 12 in rush defense with an average of just 2.8 yards allowed per carry and 81.4 yards per game. The Sooners absolutely cannot get away with running up the middle on first and second down and then passing on third and long. It's time to open up the playbook! The last time we saw the Wildcats in Norman they were an opportunistic team that played sound defense, protected the football, and capitalized on...
Big XII MBB Media Days | Lon Kruger Expects Big Things For Oklahoma Sooners

Big XII MBB Media Days | Lon Kruger Expects Big Things For Oklahoma Sooners

The upcoming collegiate basketball season lies just around the corner. For Oklahoma Sooners, the bar has been raised as the program looks to not only secure their first post-season win under Coach Lon Kruger but also contend for the Big XII Championship. The pursuit begins with the players. The key is always players. The experience that they gained from last year, I think, will help. They know how tough it is to win conference games. They know how tough it is to win postseason games. They want to do that. They worked awfully hard in the off-season in preparation for the start of...

Bill Snyder | "Oklahoma Is The Most Important Game That We'll Play This Year"

Bill Snyder and a few select Kansas State football players met with the media on Tuesday There's no question that Saturday's game between Oklahoma and Kansas State is huge for both teams but Wildcats head coach Bill Snyder is billing it as the biggest game on the KSU schedule...or was he? "I think it is the most important game that we will play this year coming up," Snyder said in his opening remarks to the media on Tuesday. "Last week, not the bye week, but the previous game before that was just as important. It is extremely significant. You only have 12 or maybe 13 opportunities to play...

Chuka Ndulue took over the Oklahoma Football Twitter account Monday night and showed more than a little personality.
