Sooners Believe Close-Knit Group Has Made Defense Better

Oklahoma's defense was the "story of the game" according to OU head coach Lincoln Riley in the  Sooners' 31-16 win at Ohio State last Saturday.

So why are the Sooners so improved on defense?

Veteran OU defender Jordan Thomas believes a group of players who like each other and hang out a lot is a big reason why they're improved on that side of the ball.
