    The Road Warrior Report - Texas Review - October 11, 2020

    DALLAS, TEXAS
    – It was the longest, highest scoring game in the series, thanks to four overtimes that really shouldn’t have happened, and when it ended, the Sooners had a 53-45 win over Texas in a very steamy, socially distanced Cotton Bowl on Saturday afternoon. The Sooner defense showed improvement, even if they fell apart in the last five minutes of the game, and Spencer Rattler grew up a lot before our eyes after being benched in the second quarter...

    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - October 4, 2020

    ISU score 2020.jpg

    AMES, IOWA – The year was 1960. Dwight Eisenhower was in his final months as President of the United States. On November 5, Iowa State defeated Oklahoma in Ames, 10-6. Three days later, John F. Kennedy would be elected President.

    And, until Saturday night, that November day 60 years ago was the last time the Sooners tasted defeat in Ames. But all things must come to an end, like a 60-year streak, and hopes of a fourth consecutive CFP appearance – and...

    NORMAN
    – As we all know, the Sooners are sadly good for one inexplicable loss every year, usually to a lower-level conference foe. This year, they decided to get that game out of the way up front, blowing a 21-point late third quarter lead to drop Saturday’s conference opener to Kansas State by a score of 38-35. As K-State losses go, this one was a classic – a game dominated by the Sooners for nearly three full quarters before a couple of cross-country...

    The Road Warrior Report - Missouri State Review - September 13, 2020

    NORMAN
    – It seemed at times like it would never come, but the Sooners finally opened the 2020 football season last night in front of a COVID-19 sellout crowd of 22,700 – the smallest home crowd in Norman since the 1940s – with a 48-0 win over Missouri State. The game was not as close as the score indicated, if that’s possible.

    Redshirt freshman QB Spencer Rattler was spectacular, even against the poor competition, going 14 of 17 for 290 yards and four...

    The Road Warrior Report - Peach Bowl Playoff Semifinal Review - December 29, 2019

    ATLANTA, GA – The Sooners came into Atlanta with hopes of finally getting over their College Football Playoff hump in the Peach Bowl against LSU. Instead, they were demolished by the Tigers, 63-28, falling to 0-4 all time in Playoff games, and 0-7 in BCS Championship and Playoff games dating back to the 2004 Sugar Bowl against LSU. No team that has played in the CFP more than once has failed to win a game . . ....

    ARLINGTON, TX – It was the toughest of the 10 Big 12 Championship Games the Sooners have won, but OU outlasted Baylor in overtime 30-23 in JerryWorld Saturday to secure their fifth straight Big 12 Championship. The win, coupled with Oregon’s rout of Utah Friday night and LSU’s rout of Georgia on Saturday afternoon, left the Sooners solidly in the College Football Playoff field for the third straight season....

    STILLWATER – The Sooners played their most complete game since the West Virginia game last night in Stillwater, pounding the Aggy into a fine paste in the second half in a 34-16 win that wasn’t as close as the score indicated. The Sooner defense held OSU to their fewest points in the series since shutting them out entirely in 2009.

    Parnell Motley was the defensive star, with a fumble recovery and an interception, and another interception that was...

    The Road Warrior Report - TCU Review - November 24, 2019

    NORMAN – Prosperity is the enemy. I know that Lincoln Riley isn’t teaching that, but it sure seems like it. A game that started 21-0 and by all rights should have been a 42-17 rout of TCU turned, instead, into a 28-24 squeaker requiring an interception inside the last two minutes and a questionable spot to allow the Sooners to pull out the win. Still, a win it was, and a Big 12 Championship Game clincher, to boot.

    Jalen Hurts was solid again, but it was his...

    The Road Warrior Report - Baylor Review - November 17, 2019

    WACO, TEXAS – A few minutes into the second quarter of last night’s game against Baylor, I had this Report already written. I wrote it right after I Googled to see what day they are playing the Alamo Bowl this year. It was just going to be a poop emoji, and nothing else. And, at that point, that was about all the game had been. Until it was something else entirely.

    And so it came to be that the Sooners - who gifted the Bears three turnovers that...

    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,...
