    The Road Warrior Report - Baylor Review - November 13, 2016

    NORMAN – Oklahoma continued its undefeated run through the Big 12 Conference Saturday with a 45-24 victory over the reeling Baylor Bears, in what is likely Baylor’s last season of relevance before reverting to their traditional doormat status. The game was marred by a serious leg injury to Baylor QB Seth Russell in the third quarter.

    Russell’s lower leg ended up turned 180 degrees from where it should have been, and he was taken from the field with an air cast on the leg. Baylor announced...

    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - November 4, 2016

    AMES, IOWA – There are few certainties in life. Death and taxes, sure, but not much else. Of the few other things that fall into the category of sure things, one of them is Oklahoma beating Iowa State on the football field. Last night, the Sooners dispatched the Cyclones at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames, 34-24. It was their 18th win in a row over ISU and their 74th in an 81-game series dating back to 1928.

    With the absence of the...

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas Review - October 30, 2016

    IMG_6328.JPG

    NORMAN – The Sooners dispatched lowly Kansas last night at Owen Field by a score of 56-3, in a game that probably wasn't as close as the score indicated, to the extent it could hold anyone’s interest. While last week’s game in Lubbock was, while grotesque, entertaining and maddening all at once, this one was the opposite – a methodical beatdown.

    To be sure, a methodical beatdown is the very last thing any Sooner fan should be complaining about. The OU defense,...

  4. LUBBOCK, TX – It was a weird, weird night, even for Lubbock, which perhaps tells you something about just how weird it was. Perhaps the weirdest thing, on a night when NCAA records for offensive profligacy (or the abject failure of defense, depending on your perspective) were blown away like bolls of the cotton that grows on the plains surrounding this desolate West Texas town, was that the Sooners won, 66-59(!) by playing better defense than Texas Tech.

    “Better,” of course, is a relative...

    Sooners defeat Wildcats, 38-17

    NORMAN – After five straight wins by the road team in the OU-Kansas State series, it was about time that someone defended home field. The Sooners did just that today, with a workmanlike 38-17 win over the Wildcats, which marked the Sooners’ first win over KSU in Norman since 2009. Dede Westbrook, who didn’t start the game for some reason, continued his torrid pace, with nine catches for 184 yards and three TDs. Baker Mayfield was excellent, going 25 of 31 for 346 yards, four TDs, and one...

    Oklahoma defeats Texas, 45-40

    IMG_5687.JPG

    DALLAS, TX – After three years of getting pushed around the Cotton Bowl, the Sooners had finally had enough. Today, they did the pushing, as they took the Golden Hat back home with a 45-40 win over Texas, in a game that was way closer than it should have been, thanks to continuing defensive problems. This thing wasn’t officially put away until the last play - the longest futile attempt at a lateral play that we’ve ever seen. The thing literally went on about 45...

    The Road Warrior Report - October 2, 2016 - TCU Review

    IMG_5481.JPG IMG_5469.JPG IMG_5466.JPG FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Here is all you need to take away from Saturday’s crazy 52-46 Sooner win over TCU at Amon Carter Stadium – we are 1-0 in conference. That is literally the only thing that matters. Yes, half the game was outstanding, and half was wretched. Yes, this team is clearly capable of going 10-2, but is equally capable of going 7-5. But there are no beauty contests here – the beauty contests ended...

    The Road Warrior Report - September 18, 2016 - Ohio State Review

    image.jpeg NORMAN – Maybe our best chance was the monsoon. If we had played in the absolute downpour that hit Owen Field a couple of hours before the Ohio State game was scheduled to kick off, we might have been better off. But, public safety considerations being what they are, the powers that be wisely decided to delay kickoff 90 minutes, so we could all be dry as we watched the Sooners take a comprehensive thumping from Ohio State, 45-24.

    Things started off well enough,...

    The Road Warrior Report - September 11, 2016 - Louisiana-Monroe Review

    image.jpeg NORMAN – What a difference a week makes. We won’t pretend that a significant decrease in the quality of the opponent didn’t have a lot to do with it, but still, the Sooners looked very much a sharper team in last night’s 59-17 drubbing of Louisiana-Monroe in the newly-renovated Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Baker Mayfield was 14-20 for 244 yards and 2 TDs in only a half of action. Joe Mixon rushed for 117 yards on 14 carries, while Samaje Perine added 58 yards on...

    Oklahoma vs. Houston season opener review

    image.jpeg image.jpeg HOUSTON, TEXAS – We’ve seen two kick-sixes, as they happened. One live on TV and one live in the stadium. Both were equally boneheaded moves by the coach trying the field goal, but the first one was a lot more amusing than the second. Houston’s kick-six against the Sooners broke open a two-point game in NRG Stadium yesterday as Houston upset Oklahoma 33-23, in a game that wasn’t as close as the score. Indeed, a goal-line fumble in...
