oklahoma football

With high school football in Washington, D.C. being postponed to the spring, five-star Oklahoma Sooners quarterback commit Caleb Williams made the move to Norman, Oklahoma for good to start integrating into the Oklahoma football program. This is according to his blog for Sports Illustrated. Hearing of a commit coming in the spring before his freshman year is something pretty common if he is a high ranked prospect. However, it is not very common that you hear of a commit going to his future college as early as the fall before the freshman year. However, the decision that Williams made to come this early in the year was not an easy one to make. The Washington, D.C. area making the decision to postpone

Coming off of a win and into the bye week, Oklahoma football seemed to capitalize on a lot of the major issues it continued to face throughout the season. We also can't go a Sooner football game without talking about true freshman Marvin Mims. Mims

Oklahoma football was on the road in Fort Worth this weekend, and it did not disappoint. The Sooners beat the TCU Horned Frogs 33-14, a much needed statement win on the road. Oklahoma looked solid and organized from the start playing a lot better on both sides of the ball. It has been said all season about this Sooners team that it is young and inexperienced in certain positions. Yesterday, the Sooners looked like the Sooners everyone was expecting at the beginning of the season with a few mistakes here and there. Oklahoma also did not turn the ball over yesterday, which had been a problem in there previous games. Offense This Oklahoma offense is on the verge of something we have been

Oklahoma Football: Back on the road

After its five-hour Red River Rivalry and a bye week, Oklahoma football is headed to Fort Worth, Texas to take on Gary Patterson and the TCU Horned Frogs. For Oklahoma to win this game, it needs to fix a couple things. Offense For this Sooners offense, they are finding their rhythm and Spencer Rattler, who is only a freshman and has played outstanding with a turnover problem that will be fixed overtime. If this offense can minimize turnovers this weekend and get points of Gary Patterson's tough and aggressive defense, they should win this game. Since the 2019 season, Oklahoma turned the ball over nearly 30 times leading up to this weekend's game. No matter how good you are this does not make it

Oklahoma football heads to Fort Worth

This weekend, Oklahoma football is heading back down south once again this time to take on the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth. This weekend's game against TCU is a pivotal moment for the Oklahoma football program in multiple ways. Coming into the game 2-2, the Sooners need to win on the sheer fact that without a win this year the Sooners will once again be sitting on a losing record for the second time this season. The biggest problem for the Sooners this weekend? TCU is the only other football program to take down Texas this year. Not only did TCU hand Texas its only other loss of the season so far, but it was able to do it in regulation

On Saturday, the Oklahoma football will be heading to Fort Worth to take on TCU, the one other team that was able to take down the Texas so far this season. While the Sooners are coming off of a win, some are still worried as the team heads down south. This is specifically due to the fact that Sooner head coach Lincoln

Oklahoma football heads into 2nd bye week after Texas win

The University of Oklahoma football program is now heading into its second bye week of the season after its first conference win against the University of Texas this past weekend. Now sitting at 2-2 and unranked in the AP Top 25 Poll, the Sooners have a lot of work to do before taking the field again next weekend. The biggest key factor Sooner defensive coordinator Alex Grinch is looking for in the next coming weeks is consistency. In Wednesday's press conference, Grinch said he was pleased with the growth his defense showed in last week's game following up his excitement by saying he is looking for a balance in the way that his players perform.
