    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - November 10, 2019

    NORMAN
    – For a half last night against Iowa State, it looked like the Sooners had put Kansas State behind them. Then came the second half, when poor defense and stagnant offense, combined with an opponent that wouldn’t quit, very nearly saw the Sooners drop their second consecutive game in Norman to Iowa State, As it was, it took a failed two-point conversion inside the last thirty seconds of the game to preserve a 42-41 win.

    On top of everything else,...

    MANHATTAN, KANSAS – It happens every year, to many teams. It happened a couple of weeks ago to Georgia. Last week, it happened to Wisconsin. Yesterday, it happened to us. This year, it happened just when we thought this might be the year that it wouldn’t. A defensive regression to the worst days of Mike Stoops and an offense that went AWOL in the third quarter combined to lead to a 48-41 loss to Kansas State that could have been much worse, given that...

    The Road Warrior Report - West Virginia Review - October 20, 2019

    NORMAN
    – About the only thing that went wrong on a beautiful fall Saturday in Norman was a Sooner Schooner rollover, as the Sooners rolled West Virginia, 52-14. Fortunately, no persons or ponies were hurt, although the field got rutted up a bit, and the Schooner itself, despite having come apart in the crash, rolled out of the stadium later in one piece. A Schooner accident rate of one every 26 years isn’t bad, I suppose. The last time that happened,...

    DALLAS, TEXAS
    – They said the Cotton Bowl would show whether Oklahoma’s defense was really improved or whether they had been feasting on inferior opponents. Nine sacks, 15 total tackles for loss, and a defensively dominating 34-27 win later, it can safely be said that the Sooner defense is much improved. The score doesn’t really reflect the domination the Sooners displayed in this game, particularly in the first half. If not for a pair of red zone...

    LAWRENCE, KANSAS
    – On a weird day that started with a rain delay and included the Sooners trailing for the first time this season and a Sooner punt on fourth and goal, OU thumped Kansas 45-20 this afternoon in Lawrence. Strangeness in Lawrence is far from unheard of, as is strangeness anywhere against an inferior opponent the week before the Texas game.

    Jalen Hurts continued his stellar play, going 16-24 for 228 yards, two TDs, and a pick. No Sooner...

    NORMAN
    – The speculation/lamentation over the last two years has been this – what could this team do if it had even an average defense? We may be finding out, as the Sooners’ shootout nemesis over the past few years, Texas Tech, was dispatched like a G5 visitor on Saturday, 55-16 in a game that wasn’t as close as the score indicated. Oklahoma scored on all of its possessions in the first half, while the Sooner defense, which has in recent years given up...

    The Road Warrior Report - UCLA Review - September 15, 2019

    PASADENA, CALIFORNIA
    – On a steamy Southern California afternoon that turned into a gorgeous evening after the sun went behind the mountains, the Sooners took care of business against a hapless and outmatched UCLA team with a 48-14 rout Saturday night. While there were no exact numbers, it was clear that the Sooner fans outnumbered the UCLA fans in a half-empty Rose Bowl.

    Jalen Hurts continued his assault on the passing efficiency records set by his two...

    The Road Warrior Report - South Dakota Review - September 8, 2019

    NORMAN
    – The Sooners were sloppy at times, particularly along the offensive line with a rash of holding penalties, but still squashed the South Dakota Coyotes 70-14 Saturday night on Owen Field. Jalen Hurts continued his ridiculous efficiency, completing 14 of 18 passes for 259 yards and three TDs and running for 47 yards on eight carries in just over two quarters of work.

    Rhamondre Stevenson led all Sooner rushers with 104 yards and a TD on only six...

    NORMAN
    – The Jalen Hurts era, short though it is guaranteed to be, got off to a rousing start Saturday night in Norman, as Hurts broke the school record for total offense in a debut game, and had the second-most rushing yards ever by an Oklahoma QB in the Sooners’ 49-31 win over Houston. Overall, Hurts accounted for 508 yards of offense by himself, including 332 yards on 20 of 23 passing for three TDs and 176 yards rushing on 16 carries for three more...

    The Road Warrior Report - Orange Bowl CFP Semifinal Review - December 30, 2018

    MIAMI GARDENS, FL – The pundits said we didn’t have a chance, not with our dumpster fire of a defense. In the end, they were right, as it took the Sooner offense a quarter to get going against Alabama’s defense, and by that time the Tide were up 28-0. The Sooners outscored the Tide 34-17 from there, but it was too little, too late, as Bama prevailed 45-34 and advanced to the CFP National Championship Game for the fourth year in a row.

    Murray was stellar after a bad start, going 19-37 for...
