2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 64 Days!

The Sooners had their hands full in Lubbock, Texas last fall. OU trailed the Red Raiders 21-7 in the third quarter and were desperate to find something that would spark their offense. That spark would would come in the form of freshman Samaje Perine would reeled off a 64-yard touchdown run which, at the time, was the longest of his career. Perine finished with 213 rushing yards on the day, and three touchdowns, as the Sooners came from behind to win by a final score of 42-30.

Why Expansion is Not a Realistic Option for the Big 12

Again we like page views If you follow college football year round, you might have seen this article floating around the last few days from FOXSPORTS outlining why the Big 12 should expand to 14 teams. Here the 5 teams they recommended that should be under serious consideration to get to 14 teams. BYU South Florida Central Florida Cincinnati Memphis You know what this list represents? A desperate attempt by Fox Sports to keep the TV rights to the Big 12. The reality is maybe 1 and if you really pushed me 2 of these teams should be under consideration. Memphis NO. USF and UCF NO. The most...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 65 Days!

There was a lot on the line when Texas Tech came to Norman on November 22, 2008. The Red Raiders were a perfect 10-0 on the season and ranked #2 in the nation. Meanwhile the Sooners were 9-1 with a #5 ranking. A win over Tech would put OU back in the conference title hunt and more importantly back in the thick of the BCS championship mix. The Sooners won a lopsided 65-21 game over Texas Tech that night as the nationally televised audience was treated to the DeMarco Murray show. Oklahoma's running back averaged 6.9 yards per carry in route to a 125 yard/2 touchdown night on the ground. He...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Preview | Ranking The Big 12 From First To Worst

Trevone Boykin and the TCU Horned Frogs are the team to beat in the Big 12! I'm honestly not a fan of preseason rankings but I do see them as a necessary evil. I mean we've got to argue and debate something before the season kicks off, right? So we might as well indulge ourselves in the, "which team deserves to be where" debate. Granted you can't really predict intangibles such as new coaches and coordinators, new position starters, and JUCO transfers. Therefore these rankings are based solely on how the teams finished in 2014 and who they have returning this fall. It is by no means an...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 66 Days!

Remember the time when Texas Tech came to Norman with a BCS championship berth and the conference title in hand? Sixty-five points later that all belonged to Oklahoma (perhaps we'll discuss that in more detail tomorrow) with Oklahoma receiver Manny Johnson did his part in the blowout win with this 66-yard touchdown reception.

OU Headed to SEC Rumors

We really like page views, so we will start this rumor train again. Football news is sparse during the dog days of summer. Recruiting takes a back seat, vacations happen, and we are still over 60 days from kickoff. So what better way to pass the time, than re-kicking the tires on conference realignment. The man that almost every OU fans loves to hate had this to say on twitter regarding realignment. According to @ESPN_Colin "The Big 5 in CFB is ready to be the Big 4... BigXII will evaporate, Oklahoma is SEC bound & the Pac12 wants Texas" — Paul Finebaum (@finebaum) June 30, 2015 ...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 67 Days!

In Oklahoma's 2009 contest against Texas A&M, DeMarco Murray piled up 224 all-purpose yards in the Sooners' 65-10 destruction of the Aggies. Both of Murray's touchdowns came on passing plays, including this 67 yard run following a short pass from Landry Jones.

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Football Countdown To Kickoff | 68 Days!

Yes, we skipped day 69. Yes, we're really sorry about it. Yes, we're moving on as if nothing happened. On September 14, 2002 the second ranked Oklahoma Sooners destroyed the UTEP Miners by a final score of 68-0 to improve to 3-0 on the season. Quarterback Nate Hybl completed 13 of 22 passes for 278 yards and two scores. Antwone Savage led all receivers with 93 yards and a score on just four receptions and Mark Clayton added 78 more yards on three receptions. On the ground Quentin Griffin scored twice en route to a 111 yards on 16 carries. Kejuan Jones averaged 6.6 yards per carry in his 75...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 70 Days!

Instead of dipping into the record books and what has been, I'd like to focus on what the future may hold. With the kicker position wide open, a young man by the name of Austin Seibert with a strong leg could quickly erase any fears or doubts. As a part of the 2015 Recruiting Class, Seibert may often be overlooked but his importance cannot be undervalued. At 5'10 195-pounds entering college, the freshman displayed a strength rarely seen by connecting on a 70-yard field goal attempt. The video circulated a while back amassing 50K views. Although there is no rush and the kick comes off a tee,...

Sooners Land 2017 QB Chris Robison

You can never stop recruiting and the Sooners have their first commitment for the class of 2017 and its a big one. Lincoln Riley alluded to it earlier this evening with this tweet and now we know who he was referring to. BIG TIME NEWS COMING!!!  Stay Tuned!  #OUDNA— Lincoln Riley (@LincolnRiley) June 27, 2015 They have landed QB Chris Robison. Robinson stars for Horn High School in Mesquite, TX. Robison tweeted out his commitment earlier this evening Im officially committing to The University of Oklahoma #OUDNA #boomersooner ⚪️ @LincolnRiley pic.twitter.com/16O9CE959q— Jay...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 71 Days!

DeMarco Murray entered college ranked as the No. 1 high school running back by ESPN. After receiving a redshirt in 2006, the youngster burst onto the scene earning accolades as well as setting records. That was until a dislocated knee sidelined Murray for the remainder of the season and into the spring. However, Murray returned the following season. By the time the start finished his career, his hands out of the back field may have been his most underrated skill. In 2010, Murray set a single season school for receptions by a running back at 71. The effort pushed the now NFL player to 1,571...

Parker Boudreaux Commitment Prediction

Parker Boudreaux (6-5/290) is arguably the top player on the Sooner offensive line recruiting board. He tweeted out earlier today that he will be committing to the school of his choice next Thursday. 1 week from today on July 2nd, I will be announcing my college decision on @BleacherReport and commitment song by @CODEiNEROBiNSON— P-Money (@ParkerBoudreaux) June 25, 2015 Boudreaux appears to be down to the Sooners, Fighting Irish, and the Clemson Tigers. I suspect this is really a two team race, Clemson and the Sooners. While the Sooners haven't fared too well as of late going head-to-head...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 72 Days!

The Oklahoma Sooners faced the Iowa State Cyclones with Michael Hunnicutt looking to take sole possession of the Big 12 Field Goal record. As luck would have it, the senior made the most of an opportunity putting his 72nd ball through the uprights to break the record set by Mason Crosby. Although, Hunnicutt will most likely be remembered not for kicking. Rather the legacy will live on through this touchdown catch...

FLASHBACK: Renaldo Work versus the state of Alabama, 2002

And you say Sooner Magic isn't real? You remember that time Oklahoma crushed Alabama?  No, not this last time, the other time.  No, the other other time.  I’m talking about 2002.  A palindrome year. I’m talking about our backup runningback saving our bacon.  Not only did he save it, he cooked it up on the griddle and served it to us with fresh biscuits and honey.  Let me explain. I was watching this game with the OU Club of Chicago.  The place we were watching gave us the big big screen, which was kind of awesome.  There were a bunch of Alabama fans in attendance, and Alabama...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 73 Days!

Punters often fail to receive credit for their work. However, the ability to flip the field and pin an opponent deep in their own territory can prove vital in the game of football. The Oklahoma Sooners possessed one of the nation's premier punters in Jeff Ferguson during Bob Stoops first few years. In an attempt to go for length, most punters lose their accuracy. That was not the case with Ferguson who claimed a school record 73-yard punt in 1999. Before eligibility ran dry, Ferguson found himself tabbed as an All-American. Yet, the most memorable play from his time at Oklahoma may have...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 74 Days

The Oklahoma Sooners opened the 1974 season ranked as the nation's top program in the AP Poll. However, after struggling to cover the 43 point spread over the Baylor Bears, voters were left unimpressed dropping OU to No. 3 in the rankings. From that point on, Barry Switzer's defense held every opponent under 14 points as the Sooners reclaimed the top spot with three weeks left in the season. Putting on a clinic, Oklahoma finished the season as the National Champions marking the first under Coach Switzer.

Du'Vonta Lampkin Update: Waiting is the Hardest Part

Finding concrete information on the Du'Vonta Lampkin situation is becoming very very difficult. Here is what we know regarding the star defensive tackler from Houston, TX. 1. He was one of the earliest Sooner commit for the class of 2015. 2. He subsequently de-committed and then committed to Texas. 3. Rumors swirled leading up to National Signing Day that Lampkin would switch the Sooners, but he signed his Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Longhorns. 4. Several weeks ago he tweeted that he would not be attending Texas even though he had signed his LOI. 5. Rumors began to swirl regarding...

5 Prospects with the Sooners at the Top

In every class there are certain prospects that receive offers and you know immediately they will never set foot on the Sooner campus. They are the longest of long-shots. The opposite of this is also true. There are always prospects that are described as "locks" for a certain school or a prospect is a strong lean for a particular school. This year is no different as there are a handful of prospects that appear to have the Sooners way out in front in their recruitment. Here are the 5 players I believes are most likely if not almost locks to be Sooners on National Signing Day. 1. LB/S Calvin...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 75 Days!

Sterling Shepard stepped on the Oklahoma Sooners campus following in his late father's footsteps. During the youngster's freshman campaign, Shepard earned four starts while coaches across the league tabbed the receiver as the Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year. Continuing to progress while at the University of Oklahoma, Shepard quickly became the No. 1 target. Against TCU in 2014 as a junior with the defense focused on him, Shepard produced career numbers. Amassing 215 yards on seven grabs, the star receiver hauled a career long 75-yard reception. Here a few highlights from his first two...

2015 Oklahoma Sooners Countdown To Kickoff | 76 Days!

In 2013 the Oklahoma Sooners stared a three point deficit in the face with the clock winding down. Pinned deep in their own territory, the offensive coordinator drew up a play for Brennan Clay on 2nd & 3rd against the TCU Horned Frog defense. The call produced a 76-yard touchdown run, the longest run of Clay's career and all but sealed the win in Norman.
