OKLAHOMA CITY- We open the Channel 4 Sports archives for a look back at classic college football with our series of re-mastered Big 8 Football Preview Shows. In 1982, Oklahoma was coming off a 7-4-1 campaign and 40-14 Sun Bowl win over Houston. Oklahoma State had posted a 7-5 record but lost to Texas A&M 33-16 in the Independence Bowl to closeout 1981. The show was hosted by Channel 4 Sports Director Bob Barry Sr. and featured reports from Robbie Robertson and Bob Barry Jr.
Channel 4 Sports covered the Big 8 Conference as part of the well-known “Skywriters” tours, in which reporters and photographers would travel to each university and tape reports. Enjoy this journey back in time with up close, on the field access to preseason preparations and interviews with some of college football’s best players and coaches on KFOR’s College Football Flashback.
