  • Little Apple Cure For Texas Hangover?

    It’s a question that arises after OU-Texas win or lose. Is there a “Texas hangover?” A game so physical that it bleeds into preparation and play the following week. But that’s not something that the Sooners have struggled with. At least not during the last 18 years. Oklahoma is 17-1 the week following the OU-Texas game. Of course the lone loss for OU came in 2014 against Kansas State. The Wildcats will be without quarterback Jesse Ertz as he nurses […]
