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


    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...

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas Review - November 19, 2017


    LAWRENCE, KS – Oklahoma defeated Kansas here on Saturday, 41-3, in a pedestrian game that was marked by an onslaught of dumb. The dumb began, well, at the beginning, when Kansas refused to shake Baker Mayfield and the other Sooner captains’ hands. The dumb continued throughout the game, as Kansas took repeated cheap shots at Mayfield, including a second-quarter head shot three seconds after he released a pass that drew only a roughing the passer foul and not...

    The Road Warrior Report - TCU Review - November 12, 2017


    NORMAN – The complete performance that had eluded Oklahoma since a September trip to Columbus, Ohio, finally arrived. The Sooners walloped No. 6 TCU, 38-20, Saturday night in a game that was not nearly as close as the score indicated. Against the top defense in the conference, and the top rushing defense in the country, the Sooners scored 38 in the first half. That’s 11 more than the Frogs had given up in their last four games combined. And, while Kenny Hill...

    The Road Warrior Report - OSU Review - November 5, 2017


    STILLWATER, OK – In a season full of weirdness, it was only fitting that the weirdest game yet happened in Stillwater. In a shootout reminiscent of last year’s Tech debacle, the Sooners outlasted OSU 62-52, in a game that was just as strange as that score indicated.

    OSU QB Mason Rudolph had an outstanding game by any measure, and was nothing but an afterthought to the juggernaut that was Baker Mayfield. Mayfield set a school single-game record with 598 yards...

    The Road Warrior Report - Texas Tech Review - October 29, 2017


    NORMAN – In a game that started out, most disturbingly, looking like a carbon copy of last season’s affront to defensive football in Lubbock, the Sooner defense held Texas Tech to seven points over the final three quarters, and the Sooners defeated Tech, 49-27 Saturday night in Norman. Mike Stoops opened the game in a three-man front, which was shredded by Kliff Kingsbury’s offense. But a switch to four defensive linemen completely changed the game.

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas State Review - October 22, 2017


    MANHATTAN, KANSAS – For several weeks now, the question has been why the Sooners cant manage to stand prosperity, repeatedly running out to double-digit leads early only to cough them up in the second half. They certainly fixed their second-half problems against Kansas State – but only by moving the same issues to the first half. OU fell behind KSU 21-7 in the second quarter before mounting a second-half comeback that ultimately resulted in a 42-35 win on a...

    The Road Warrior Report - Texas Review - October 15, 2017

    – OU-Texas should really always be a fistfight. This one was. The Sooners prevailed 29-24 Saturday in the Cotton Bowl in a game that really shouldn’t have been that close, but somehow was. It continued a disturbing trend of fast starts followed by letting the opponent back in the game. Against Baylor and Iowa State, the Sooners had jumped out to 14-0 leads before coughing them up – this time it was a 20-point lead. This really does not need...

    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - October 8, 2017


    NORMAN - Well, we always seem to uncork a stinker every year that results in a head-shaking loss. So it was yesterday, as Iowa State came into Norman and won for the first time since 1990, 38-31.

    To be sure, the Cyclones deserved the win, but the Sooners couldn’t have done much more to help them. Critical, stupid penalties. A turnover inside the Iowa State five-yard line that turned what was about to be a 15-point Sooner third quarter lead into a tie game....
