    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 - 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 - 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 - Texas Review - October 7, 2018


    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 - 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...

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas State Review - October 28, 2018


    NORMAN – Bill Snyder said that Kansas State wanted to do to the Sooners this week what Army did earlier in the season – play physical and defend the explosive Sooner offense by keeping them off the field. Instead, the Sooners proved themselves the far more physical team in a mismatch that resulted in a 51-14 OU win that was not as close as the score indicated.


    The Sooner defense continued to show marked improvement, albeit against...

    The Road Warrior Report - Texas Tech Review - November 4, 2018


    LUBBOCK, TX – All anyone could seem to talk about leading up to the Sooners’ game with Texas Tech was what happened here two years ago and that ridiculous 66-59 OU win. This game wasn’t that. It was weird in its own way, as night game in Lubbock often are, but it ended like almost all of them do, with a Sooner win. This time, it wasn’t quite 66-59, but 51-46 worked well enough in a game that, hopefully, won’t be remembered much past Sunday morning.

    The Road Warrior Report - OSU Review - November 11, 2018


    NORMAN – Same story, same result. Same as last year and so many years before. The Sooners and OSU locked in a tight battle that always comes out in our favor, ín defiance of the law of averages. The 48-47 win keeps the Sooners in the driver’s seat in the Big 12 heading into the final two games of the season.


    Kyler Murray was once again criminally efficient, going 21 of 29 for 349 yards and a TD, and adding 66 yards rushing....

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas Review - November 18, 2018

    IMG_9246.JPG NORMAN – The Sooner defense, admittedly hampered by injuries, put on perhaps its worst performance of a bad year Saturday night, surrendering 40 points and 524 yards to lowly Kansas in a 55-40 win on a frigid evening at Owen Field. The Sooner offense, on the other hand, did not punt and scored seven TDs, failing to score only because of a pair of turnovers and running out the clock at the end of the game.

    Kyler Murray was brilliant once again, other than a second...

    The Road Warrior Report - West Virginia Review - November 24, 2018


    MORGANTOWN, WV – The Sooners defeated West Virginia 59-56 Friday night in Morgantown, punching their ticket to Arlington for a rematch with Texas and a shot at their unprecedented fourth straight Big 12 title. That much, including the score, really shouldn’t have come as any surprise to anyone. What was a surprise is that the Sooner defense, which was abjectly incompetent most of the night, punctuated that futility with a couple of moments of brilliance that...
