    Sooners Survive Longhorn Scare, 31-26

    Oklahoma’s offense was inept for most of the game, and the Sooner defense gave up unexpected yards and points to Texas, but the Sooners survived an upset bid to beat the Longhorns 31-26 in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday. OU had just 29 yards of total offense to Texas’ 278 in the first half,  but Longhorn mistakes, plus Sooner touchdowns on special teams and defense have been the difference. The Longhorns outgained Oklahoma 482-232 in total offense, but Texas had 11 penalties to just […]

    Sooners Ready for Revenge in Red River Rivalry

    Oklahoma came into last  year’s game against Texas heavily favored to beat the Longhorns for the fourth straight year. UT actually cruised to a 36-20 win over the Sooners, and that loss still resonates for the OU players a year later. This year, both OU and Texas enter the Red River Rivalry coming off a loss, with the Sooners losing at TCU, and Texas losing to Baylor.

    Sooners Hope To Rebound in the Red River Rivalry

    Oklahoma has lost their lofty national ranking after losing to TCU last Saturday, but now the Sooners have to regroup, because next up is Texas this Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. OU hasn’t lost back-to-back regular season games under Bob Stoops since his first season in 1999, and Oklahoma will be favored to beat the struggling Longhorns this year. They were last year in the Red River Rivalry and were upset, so focus and concentration won’t be a […]

  • Trevor Knight reacts to Katy Perry’s request

    Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was put on the spot on Monday in Norman, but not about his play in the loss to TCU last Saturday. Knight was asked if he had called singer Katy Perry, after the pop star had picked OU to beat TCU on ESPN GameDay last Saturday, based solely on Knight’s looks. Perry told Knight to “call her,” and later in the segment said “I still love you Trevor Knight.” Knight already has a serious girlfriend, but he played along […]

  • Gundy Still Not Pleased With His Cowboys

    Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy’s team has won four in a row, but you wouldn’t know it from how Gundy talks about  his team. At his weekly news conference on Monday in Stillwater, Gundy talked about the areas in which OSU needs to improve. The Cowboys visit Kansas for a 3:00 kickoff this Saturday, in their first true road game of the season.

  • Sooners Stunned by Loss to TCU

    Oklahoma had extra week to get ready for TCU, but the Sooners fell short against the Horned Frogs on Saturday in Fort Worth, losing 37-33 for their first loss in nine games. The defense had trouble getting pressure on TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin, and the Sooner offense sputtered, especially in the passing game, where OU quarterback Trevor Knight was just 14 for 35 passing. Now the Sooners must regroup for what’s next, a trip to Dallas to play Texas in the […]
