    The Road Warrior Report - TCU Review - October 21, 2018

    FORT WORTH, TEXAS – It always seems that the Sooners have to lose a game to start playing their best. I hope that what we saw in Fort Worth wasn’t their best, but it was better than we have seen recently, particularly on defense. The defense held TCU to only three points in the second half, helping the Sooners to a 52-27 rout of the Horned Frogs.

    Kyler Murray was 19-24 for 213 yards and four TDs. The Sooners did most of their damage on the ground, gashing the...

    DALLAS, TEXAS - They say the best defense is a good offense. That was proven by Army a couple of weeks ago. However, in the Sooners’ case, the best defense is an average defense, or even a below average defense. A below average defense would have seen the Sooners win Saturday against Texas. An average defense, and they would be defending national champions. Instead, we have whatever was purported to be the Sooner defense in the Cotton Bowl on Saturday. Because...

    The Road Warrior Report - Baylor Review - September 30, 2018

    NORMAN – The Sooners bounced back from the struggle against Army yesterday with a 66-33 blowout of Baylor. Kyler Murray did not start due to being late for practice on Friday, but made up for it with an incredible performance backing up Austin Kendall. Kendall came out after the first series, and Murray then proceeded to go 17-21 for 441 yards and six TDs. His four incompletions consisted of three drops and a ball caught out of bounds. He also ran for 36 yards...

    The Road Warrior Report - Army Review - September 23, 2018

    NORMAN - Military service academies are menaces. Really, when you think about it, that’s exactly what they’re supposed to be. After all, the primary purpose of the military academies is to train their students to kill people and break things. And so it was that Army, fulfilling its core purpose as a menace, took the Sooners to the brink Saturday night before falling 28-21 in overtime.

    The academies run the triple option because, well,...

    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - September 15, 2018

    AMES, IOWA – Critical, stupid penalties. A third-quarter fumble deep in Iowa State territory that turned what would have been a double-digit lead into a tie game. These are the things that helped turn the Sooners’ loss last year against the Cyclones. These things also happened today in Ames. But today, unlike last season, a replay review negated the Sooners’ critical third-quarter fumble. So instead of ISU having the ball and a chance to tie, the Sooners...

    The Road Warrior Report - UCLA Review - September 8, 2018

    NORMAN – The jury is still out in many ways, but the Sooners’ 49-21 defeat of UCLA on Saturday afternoon on Owen Field demonstrated that OU’s defense may actually be back. The first team defense held the Bruins to seven points before a couple of garbage time touchdowns late in the game, shut them down on the ground, and spent all day in the UCLA backfield. The OU offense, while finding tough going in the ground game, still put up 49 points in a blowout win....

    The Road Warrior Report - Florida Atlantic Review - September 2, 2018

    C17FA6B9-9EBF-49F0-8BCA-5396F72C9455.jpeg

    NORMAN – The pundits said the Sooners would take a step back this year. After all, our offense lost the Heisman winner at QB, and our defense was awful last year. They figured we might face a fight from a Florida Atlantic team that was on a 10-game winning streak. Of course, these are the same people that figured we’d face a drop off in the backfield after Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine left, and the same people who keep ranking Texas in the preseason. While...

    The Road Warrior Report - Rose Bowl Review - January 2, 2018

    27D03413-05BF-4457-92F0-A4B138EE8250.jpeg

    PASADENA, CA – The Granddaddy of them All had never seen one like this. It was an instant classic. Unfortunately, as has happened before, the Sooners were on the wrong end of it, falling 54-48 in double overtime to Georgia in the national semifinals here at the Rose Bowl.

    Baker Mayfield, in his final game as a Sooner, went 23-35 with two TDs and one huge pick, while also catching a TD pass on a gadget play. Rodney Anderson shredded the Georgia defense for...

    The Road Warrior Report - Big 12 Championshp Game Review - December 3, 2017

    ARLINGTON, TX – Oklahoma has never lost a rematch. Not in the Orange Bowl against Nebraska, not in the three rematches in the first incarnation of the Big 12 Championship Game, and for sure not Saturday against TCU in JerryWorld. Baker Mayfield and the Sooners put the lie to TCU’s nonsense about having “shut down” the Sooners in the second half of last month’s rout in Norman, pounding the Frogs 41-17. The win secured the Sooners’ second three-peat Big 12 Championship and a spot in the...

    The Road Warrior Report - West Virginia Review - November 26, 2017

    NORMAN –In a game that was marked by West Virginia’s perpetual chippiness, the Sooners simply made sure none of it mattered, powering to eight TDs and a field goal on their first nine possessions en route to a 59-31 rout of the Mountaineers that was not nearly as close as the score indicated. Baker Mayfield’s suspension turned out to be, as we expected, for a single series, which ended up being only two plays. The chip on his shoulder was as evident in his last game on Owen Field as it was...
