Oklahoma Sooners Football Practice Notes | Injury Update, Romar Carted Off, Mayfield Sighting

Injury Update After a long season, one major concern for each team participating in a bowl game remains the health of the players. The Oklahoma Sooners are no different after losing key playmakers down the stretch. Now in Orlando, word seems to be that freshman running back, Samaje Perine, appears to be moving fine although the ankle is taped. Samaje Perine's left ankle is heavily taped, but he seems to be moving fine. #Sooners pic.twitter.com/rbBZS38oDV — John Shinn (@john_shinn) December 26, 2014 While much of the focus will be on the rushing attack, the Sooners are hoping to...

Russell Athletic Bowl | By The Numbers: Rushing Attack

In the Russell Athletic Bowl, set to kickoff on Monday, December 29th at 4:30 PM CST, one quarterback must take over after struggling throughout the season while the other continues to recuperate from an injury. That puts the focus firmly on the rushing attack of each squad. Looking into the game, two freshman running backs square off with the hope of generating enough offense to secure a win. Ultimately, the program capable of picking up the tough yards likely comes out ahead when the clock hits zeroes. The only question that remains is: which team will that be? Let's take a look at what...

Must See Play | Bahamas Bowl Ends With Central Michigan Hail Mary Pass & Failed 2-Point Conversion

After trailing Western Kentucky 49-14 at the end third quarter, the Central Michigan Chippewas set out on a mission. Owning the fourth quarter, the Chippewas made an unanticipated push in their attempt to claim the inaugural Bahamas Bowl crown. Finding themselves down a mere touchdown with one second remaining on the clock, the unthinkable unfolded... Quarterback Cooper Rush dropped back to pass as the game clock hit double zeroes. Scrambling around in the pocket, Rush throws up a prayer to who other than wide receiver and favorite target, Titus Davis. Coming down with the ball secured and...

2014 Russell Athletic Bowl Preview | What To Expect From The Oklahoma Offense

Things won't come easy for Oklahoma against Clemson's defense but there is a way for the Sooners to find success. Oklahoma's offense limped to the finish line of the 2014 season with their starting quarterback, top receiver, and leading rusher all on the sidelines for the Sooners season-ending loss to Oklahoma State. Now with the prospect of having Trevor Knight, Sterling Shepard, and Samaje Perine healthy, and back in action, they'll have one of the top defenses in the nation facing them on the other side of the ball. The Tigers are aggressive (44 sacks on the season), opportunistic (9...

The Sucker Punch Heard Around The World | What You May Have Missed With The Miami Beach Bowl

The first annual Miami Beach Bowl was a fantastic game that was followed by a vicious brawl. Kai Nacua became an internet sensation immediately following the Miami Beach Bowl but it was for all the wrong reasons. Shortly after a DaShaughn Terry intercepted BYU quarterback Christian Stewart to seal a double-overtime 55-48 win for Memphis, a scrum between the two teams broke out. While restraint should have been showed by both parties it appears that the squab started with an untimely celebration by a Memphis player in the face of several BYU guys and an unfortunate shove by a Cougars'...

Blowout Monday | Final Score: Oklahoma Sooners 85, Weber State Wildcats 51

Across the nation, Blowout Monday took full effect with multiple Big XII Conference teams participating. However, all eyes were on the Oklahoma Sooners after a record setting 39-point run witnessed in the first half. Using the distance to shift into cruise control, Oklahoma downed the Weber State Wildcats 85-51. Characterized by a 68.8% shooting effort, the story clearly lies within the first twenty minutes of play. But, it's not enough to simply highlight the offense as the defense shut down any efforts made by the opponent. Forcing turnovers early and often, Oklahoma kept their opponent...

Oklahoma Sooners Set NCAA Basketball Record With 39 Point Run Against Division I Opponent

In 2006, Utah St. took to the hardwood against Idaho in what would be a memorable match-up for the Aggies. Why? Simple. The Aggies took off on a 37-0 point run over their opponent to claim a spot in the record books. While that's an incredible feat in and of itself, there's a saying that floats around from time to time..."records are made to be broken." Fast forward to today, December 22nd, 2014 and that's exactly what happened. The Oklahoma Sooners returned home after a short trip to Las Vegas to tackle the Weber State Wildcats. Playing with active hands, the Sooners forced turnover after...

Big XII Well Represented In Latest AP Poll While Sooners Slide To No. 19

The Oklahoma Sooners traveled to Las Vegas last week and were handed their third loss of the season by the Washington Huskies. After being ranked No. 15, the program took a slide down four spots from the previous week. However, the Big XII as a conference continues to show the power from top to bottom. Included in this weeks poll, the TCU Horned Frogs remain unbeaten while taking over the roll of gate keeper. The folks from Ft. Worth join six other conference opponents inside the top twenty-five. If anyone continues to look for schools to add to the Big XII while contributing to multiple...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / A Sooner Recruiting Christmas Wishlist

As of today the Sooners sit at 17 commitments. Last week was a great week with the additions of Ricky DeBerry and Kahlil Haughton. They also lost longtime commit Tyrell Jacobs. With national signing day just over a month away (February 4th) there is still lots of recruits that will fill out the rest of the class. It's also Christmas time and everyone has a Christmas list full of gifts and presents that they hope to receive. With that being said, I thought I would look at prospects that should be at the top of every Sooners Christmas list. 1. Arthur McGinnis @amg_arthur Arthur...

Bowl Season Storylines | Five Things You May Not Have Known From Saturday's Games

Don't let the fact that these are "lower tier bowls" fool you. There is still plenty of drama and a lot to play for. Here's what you may have missed if you didn't watch Saturday's bowl games. New Orleans Bowl (Louisiana-Lafayette 16, Nevada 3) - The Cajuns became the first team to ever win the same bowl game four consecutive years in a row but the primary story centered around senior defensive tackle Christian Ringo who sacked Utah State quarterback Cody Fajardo with 17 seconds remaining to break a record that was set over twenty years ago by Jeff Mitchell. A current Louisiana State...

Oklahoma Sooners Football Recruiting / The Top 5 Commits that Got Away

In recruiting players will inevitably decommit. Many deplore this but the reality is that it happens a lot. Just over the past week or so Texas Tech lost longtime commitment and elite QB recruit Jarrett Stidham and Texas lost longtime OL commit Toby Weathersby. Further there is always the recruit that was supposedly a "lock" for your school and end up going somewhere else. In light of that I thought that it might be interesting to look at the "Top 5 Commits that Got Away" from the Sooners. It doesn't necessarily mean that the players were committed, but most thought that these players were...
