    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...

    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...

    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...

    The Road Warrior Report - West Virginia Review - November 20, 2016

    MORGANTOWN, WV – In the biggest game in West Virginia in many years, a game with the locals hyped and sauced to the gills, a game where the home team was fighting perceived disrespect from the CFP committee and fighting for a chance at a conference title, Oklahoma played the role of, well, Oklahoma. The Sooners rolled into a roiling Morgantown Saturday night and rolled over the Mountaineers 56-28, in a strange game that was at once closer than the score indicated, and then again not as...

    The Road Warrior Report - UTEP Review - September 3, 2017

    NORMAN – If you weren’t paying close attention, and nobody told you, there was virtually nothing about the Sooners’ 56-7 thumping of UTEP Saturday afternoon on Owen Field that would have given you the idea that anything had changed. This was an opener that any of Bob Stoops’ teams could have delivered against a lesser opponent. For that matter, it might have been one of Stoops’ better openers, given the Sooners’ historic trend of less-than-impressive Labor Day weekend showings.

    The Road Warrior Report - UCLA Review - September 8, 2018

    NORMAN – The jury is still out in many ways, but the Sooners’ 49-21 defeat of UCLA on Saturday afternoon on Owen Field demonstrated that OU’s defense may actually be back. The first team defense held the Bruins to seven points before a couple of garbage time touchdowns late in the game, shut them down on the ground, and spent all day in the UCLA backfield. The OU offense, while finding tough going in the ground game, still put up 49 points in a blowout win....

    The Road Warrior Report - Tulane Review - September 17, 2017

    NORMAN
    – Option teams are always a pain. Always. Remember Air Force a few years ago? Ask Michigan about Air Force. They do what they do, and they do it again and again and again, and when you only see them once in a blue moon, it’s hard. And so it was, for a quarter and a half or so on Saturday night, as Tulane’s option attack jumped out to a 14-7 first quarter lead before the Sooners ripped off 49 unanswered points in a 56-14 drubbing on Owen Field....

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

    0897579D-B5BB-4BC8-9096-1D26A03A84E2.jpeg

    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.

  9. 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...

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

    229498CF-B9DA-4DA1-9556-67616B721342.jpeg

    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.
