Sooner Coach is Ready to Get Season Started

The wait for the start of the college football season is almost over for Oklahoma's program.

Head coach Lincoln Riley is ready for it to start, too, and it will Saturday at 11:00 am at home against Florida Atlantic.

Riley says watching all the NFL preseason games and high school scrimmages and games is making him anxious to his team's season started.

It's the second season for Riley as head coach after leading the Sooners to a Big 12 championship and a berth in the College Football Playoff last year.

OU will have several younger players stepping up to play bigger roles this year, but Riley says the goals and approach are the same as last year.
