    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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • An Unlikely Cowboy Sparked OSU To Win

    Oklahoma State’s football team was sluggish and locked in a 6-6 tie with Iowa State late in the first half last Saturday. That’s when a big play was made by a relatively unknown Cowboy that helped spark OSU on their way to a 37-20 win. Senior defensive back Elliott Jeffcoat recovered a kickoff that bounced between two Cyclone returners, setting OSU up for a late first half touchdown. Jeffcoat was originally a walk-on from South Carolina who just recently earned a scholarship, and his path […]
