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


    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.

    The Road Warrior Report - Kansas State Review - October 22, 2017


    MANHATTAN, KANSAS – For several weeks now, the question has been why the Sooners cant manage to stand prosperity, repeatedly running out to double-digit leads early only to cough them up in the second half. They certainly fixed their second-half problems against Kansas State – but only by moving the same issues to the first half. OU fell behind KSU 21-7 in the second quarter before mounting a second-half comeback that ultimately resulted in a 42-35 win on a...

    The Road Warrior Report - Texas Review - October 15, 2017

    – OU-Texas should really always be a fistfight. This one was. The Sooners prevailed 29-24 Saturday in the Cotton Bowl in a game that really shouldn’t have been that close, but somehow was. It continued a disturbing trend of fast starts followed by letting the opponent back in the game. Against Baylor and Iowa State, the Sooners had jumped out to 14-0 leads before coughing them up – this time it was a 20-point lead. This really does not need...

    The Road Warrior Report - Iowa State Review - October 8, 2017


    NORMAN - Well, we always seem to uncork a stinker every year that results in a head-shaking loss. So it was yesterday, as Iowa State came into Norman and won for the first time since 1990, 38-31.

    To be sure, the Cyclones deserved the win, but the Sooners couldn’t have done much more to help them. Critical, stupid penalties. A turnover inside the Iowa State five-yard line that turned what was about to be a 15-point Sooner third quarter lead into a tie game....

    The Road Warrior Report - September 23, 2017 - Baylor revew


    WACO, TX – Had you told me beforehand the Sooners would score 49 points against Baylor in the conference opener, I wouldn’t have been surprised. Had you told me Baylor would score 41, I’d have told you that you were nuts. In the event, both happened, as Oklahoma had to hold off a late Baylor rally to eke out a 49-41 win at McLane Stadium Saturday night. Baylor scored 10 points late in the game, recovered an onside kick, and were in a position to possibly tie...

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


    – 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 - Ohio State Review - September 10, 2017

    – In the world of college football, there aren’t many things better than a top 5, national spotlight matchup in one of the hallowed cathedrals of the sport in front of 109,000 people. Unless, that is, rendering those 109,000 a non-factor, followed immediately by prompting an exercise to see how quickly 109,000 people can evacuate with 9-plus minutes to play in the game. And so it was at The Horseshoe in Columbus, as the Sooners avenged last year’s beatdown in Norman...

    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 - Sugar Bowl Review - January 4, 2017


    – The second-best team in Alabama has nothing on the best team in the Big 12. Again. Three years after knocking off Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, the Sooners returned to the Big Easy and gave similar treatment to the Crimson Tide’s agriculturally-inclined little brothers, stomping Auburn in the 2017 Sugar Bowl by a count of 35-19, in a game that was not as close as that score indicated.

    To be sure, this Auburn...

    The Road Warrior Report - OSU Review - December 4, 2016


    NORMAN – On a day better suited for ducks than football, the Oklahoma Sooners throttled Oklahoma State yesterday 38-20, to capture their 10th Big 12 Championship. In the process, they accomplished what no Sooner team had since the 1980’s, and what no Big 12 team for the foreseeable future will be able to do – they clinched a conference title on their home field. It completed an unlikely rebound from a 1-2 start and was the Sooners’ first undefeated conference...
