Oklahoma Sooners At Iowa State Cyclones | Your Complete Football Preview

Trevor Knight Undisclosed Injury After jumping out to a great start, an untimely event unfolded as Trevor Knight took a shot to the back while diving at the end of a play. The result of the play forced back-up, Cody Thomas into the game until the starter returned for the next drive. Regardless, Knight left the stadium with his non-throwing arm in a sling leading to missed practices during the off week. During Monday's Big XII Teleconference, head coach Bob Stoops acknowledged the injury a week after refusing to comment on the situation. However, he failed to disclose any information...as...

Oklahoma Sooners Football At Iowa State Cyclones | What To Expect From The Offense

Iowa State's defensive woes could be Oklahoma's best friend on Saturday morning. The main glaring difference between Iowa State and Oklahoma's previous three opponents is the struggles that the Cyclones have experienced on the defensive side of the ball. ISU is one of the worst defensive teams in the conference whereas TCU, Texas, and Kansas State are all near or at the top. As Oklahoma's offense prepares to face the Cyclones on the road there will still be challenges that they face but the end result should be extremely different just based on the performance of the ISU defense. Here's...
Oklahoma Sooners Running Back Joe Mixon Reaches Plea Agreement, Will Avoid Trial

Oklahoma Sooners Running Back Joe Mixon Reaches Plea Agreement, Will Avoid Trial

Joe Mixon had been scheduled to go to trial in January. In a move that will allow him to avoid going to trial and hopefully put an end to a saga that's been going on since July, Joe Mixon has decided to enter an an Alford plea. In return, Mixon will receive a a one-year deferred sentence, 100 hours of community service and cognitive behavior counseling. Most importantly, though, he'll avoid a trial that would have no doubt put him at the center of attention once again in the state of Oklahoma. An Alford plea is a guilty plea in criminal court, whereby a defendant (Mixon) in a criminal...

Oklahoma Sooners Wide Receiver Dannon Cavil Announces His Plans To Transfer

Redshirt freshman Dannon Cavil announced, via Twitter, on Wednesday night that he would be transferring out of the Oklahoma football program. H pic.twitter.com/eRteU4KKdx — Dannon Cavil (@dannoncavil) October 30, 2014 A 6-4/214 receiver from San Antonio, Texas, Cavil was a four-star recruit by ESPN and three-star by Rivals.

Sooners vs. The Stats | Is Defense Doing Their Part?

What happens when your best isn't good enough? If you’re the Oklahoma Sooners’ defense it means that you have two losses in the first two games. If we needed further proof that Oklahoma's game against Texas was an anomaly, that game is the only time this season an opposing offense has produced better than their average against this Sooner defense. The good news is that OU won that game but it only brings out the frustration of knowing that in their two losses this season Oklahoma's defense has done their job.

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting | Austin Seibert Kicks 70 Yard Field Goal

One of the most important, but often overlooked recruits of the class of 2015 is Austin Seibert. With Hunnicutt exhausting his eligibility after this year, the field goal kicking duties for the Sooners will be wide open. If Seibert has a leg anywhere close to what we see in this video below, the Sooners kicking game shouldn't miss a beat. Check out this video of Austin hitting a 70 yard field goal I realize that this is on a tee and there is no pash rush, but the strength of Seibert's leg is amazing. He should only get stronger once he gets into a college football program.The Sooners...

CBS Preseason MBB Rankings | "Lon Kruger might have enough pieces to snap KU's run of Big 12 titles"

Coming off a 23-10 campaign, the resurrection process for the Oklahoma Sooners rages on. While some might argue this point, a win-less post-season record over the past three seasons states otherwise. That's not to say this program remains in shambles. Quite the opposite actually. Simply reaching the NCAA Tournament marks a step in the right direction. Now, Lon Kruger loads up to make a run in March and others continue to take notice. CBS Preseason Ranking Team 1 Kentucky 2 Duke 3 Arizona 4 Wisconsin 5 Kansas 6 Florida 7 North Carolina 8 Wichita...

2014 Oklahoma Sooners Football Opponent First Look | Iowa State Cyclones

The Sooners have won 15 consecutive games against Iowa State and haven't lost in Ames since 1960. Conference: Big XII Season Record: 2-5 Last Week's Opponent: Bye Points Scored Per Game: 27.4 (Ranks 16th Nationally) Points Allowed Per Game: 35.3 (Ranks 109th Nationally) Last Meeting With Sooners: November 16, 2013 (L 48-10) Things aren't going very well for Iowa State as far as wins and losses go but don't let that trick you into thinking Oklahoma's road trip to Ames this weekend is going to be a cakewalk. In defeat, the Cyclones have posted impressive numbers against Kansas State,...

2014-15 Oklahoma Sooners Men's Basketball Preview

The Sooners start the season ranked #19 and picked to finish 3rd in the Big 12 "You know, last year we were under the radar a little bit but this year expectations are much higher and the guys understand that. They know that they have to do things on both ends of the floor and line up and get better every day." -Lon Kruger CCM: Coach it's always great to talk with you. Tell us about your summer. Coach Kruger: Summer was great! We had a lot going on with camps and our players had a great summer in terms of picking up some classes, as well as workouts, and Buddy of course was at Durant's...

Monday Morning Bulletpoints -- 10/27/14

Kickin' it Dante-style for Halloween. Happy Monday, Sooners fans! I tell you, I may have had more fun watching football this weekend – college or pro – than I have in the last few weeks. Sometimes a bye week just does a body good. This is a sentiment put rather well by The Norman Transcript’s John Shinn: "Final five games will show if OU was slow to reach potential or overrated." Because that’s basically the "Where’s the beef?" question, right? I could opine, but I think Shinn does a good job of breaking it down, and I like to credit good journalism when I see it. But...

Oklahoma Sooners Basketball Preview | Lon Kruger Talks Hoops With Crimson And Cream Machine

In anticipation of the 2014-15 Oklahoma basketball season, and to help us with a boost to our preview, I had the opportunity to visit with Sooners basketball coach Lon Kruger last week. "You know last year we were under the radar a little bit but this year expectations are much higher and the guys understand that. They know that they have to do things on both ends of the floor and line up and get better every day." -Lon Kruger CCM: Coach it's always great to talk with you. Tell us about your summer.

Sooner Nation Podcast | Oklahoma's Bowl Possibilities And The One-Loss Team Debate

The raging debate in college right now is all about who the best one-loss team is. We're gonna jump right into that with our opinions on the matter and it comes as no surprise that we have two very different opinions. Use the media player to listen to the Sooner Nation Podcast live, beginning at 6:30 PM (CT) Speaking of one-loss teams, who is the best team in the Big 12? We'll also cover what we believe are the best bowl options for the Sooners and a few things that we hope to see in with this team coming off the bye week. Finally, we have the Big 12 rundown (Seriously, TCU) and tell...

Week 9 Polls | And Then There Were Three

After surviving a road test, the Mississippi St. Bulldogs hold on to their first ever top ranking in school history for yet another week. Of course, the loss suffered by Ole Miss leaves room for another SEC team to jump into the top three. The notion that two from the conference will likely make the first ever college play continues to run rampant.

College Football Saturday Open Thread - Week Nine

No Oklahoma football today means we'll get to go to bed tonight with a normal blood pressure reading. The college football season has officially passed the halfway point which means, if you're like me, that you'll be tuned in trying to catch every second that you can regardless of the fact that Oklahoma isn't playing. There are a few games that could help the Sooners in the conference race today but it means we may have to get a little dirty. Regardless of who wins the West Virginia/O-State game it'll help because one of those teams will drop from just having one Big 12 loss. Texas could...
