    The Road Warrior Report - Ohio State Review - September 10, 2017



    COLUMBUS, OHIO
    – 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.

    But...

    NEW ORLEANS, LA
    – 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

    IMG_7280.JPG

    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...

    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 - 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,...

  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...

    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...
