    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 - 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 - 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 - Florida Atlantic Review - September 2, 2018

    C17FA6B9-9EBF-49F0-8BCA-5396F72C9455.jpeg

    NORMAN – The pundits said the Sooners would take a step back this year. After all, our offense lost the Heisman winner at QB, and our defense was awful last year. They figured we might face a fight from a Florida Atlantic team that was on a 10-game winning streak. Of course, these are the same people that figured we’d face a drop off in the backfield after Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine left, and the same people who keep ranking Texas in the preseason. While...

    The Road Warrior Report - Rose Bowl Review - January 2, 2018

    27D03413-05BF-4457-92F0-A4B138EE8250.jpeg

    PASADENA, CA – The Granddaddy of them All had never seen one like this. It was an instant classic. Unfortunately, as has happened before, the Sooners were on the wrong end of it, falling 54-48 in double overtime to Georgia in the national semifinals here at the Rose Bowl.

    Baker Mayfield, in his final game as a Sooner, went 23-35 with two TDs and one huge pick, while also catching a TD pass on a gadget play. Rodney Anderson shredded the Georgia defense for...

    The Road Warrior Report - Big 12 Championshp Game Review - December 3, 2017

    ARLINGTON, TX – Oklahoma has never lost a rematch. Not in the Orange Bowl against Nebraska, not in the three rematches in the first incarnation of the Big 12 Championship Game, and for sure not Saturday against TCU in JerryWorld. Baker Mayfield and the Sooners put the lie to TCU’s nonsense about having “shut down” the Sooners in the second half of last month’s rout in Norman, pounding the Frogs 41-17. The win secured the Sooners’ second three-peat Big 12 Championship and a spot in the...

    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...

    LAWRENCE, KS – Oklahoma defeated Kansas here on Saturday, 41-3, in a pedestrian game that was marked by an onslaught of dumb. The dumb began, well, at the beginning, when Kansas refused to shake Baker Mayfield and the other Sooner captains’ hands. The dumb continued throughout the game, as Kansas took repeated cheap shots at Mayfield, including a second-quarter head shot three seconds after he released a pass that drew only a roughing the passer foul and not...

    NORMAN – The complete performance that had eluded Oklahoma since a September trip to Columbus, Ohio, finally arrived. The Sooners walloped No. 6 TCU, 38-20, Saturday night in a game that was not nearly as close as the score indicated. Against the top defense in the conference, and the top rushing defense in the country, the Sooners scored 38 in the first half. That’s 11 more than the Frogs had given up in their last four games combined. And, while Kenny Hill...

    The Road Warrior Report - OSU Review - November 5, 2017

    STILLWATER, OK – In a season full of weirdness, it was only fitting that the weirdest game yet happened in Stillwater. In a shootout reminiscent of last year’s Tech debacle, the Sooners outlasted OSU 62-52, in a game that was just as strange as that score indicated.

    OSU QB Mason Rudolph had an outstanding game by any measure, and was nothing but an afterthought to the juggernaut that was Baker Mayfield. Mayfield set a school single-game record with 598 yards...
