Oklahoma football: End of season COVID problems

oklahoma football

You probably heard Oklahoma should have played in Morgantown this past weekend against the West Virginia Mountaineers. If so, then you must also know that the Sooners did not play due to COVID-19 problems. Last week, Oklahoma football shut down all team activities and was forced to postpone the game due to contact tracing. No players or coaches were disclosed, and the game was moved to Dec. 12.

This week, the Sooners are supposed to host the Baylor Bears for the last home game of the season. So far there has been no word on postponing or canceling the game. There has been rumors of possible starters being out for this weekend’s game against the Bears. Lincoln Riley has not yet stated any players are out and as far as everyone knows, the Sooners will have everyone Saturday unless a statement is released.

If Oklahoma plays and beats Baylor, then the Sooners will be a game away from the Big 12 title for a rematch and a chance for Oklahoma to avenge the regular season loss in Ames.

The only problem that stands in the way is COVID-19. COVID has made everything unpredictable but I will be updating accordingly on the Sooners COVID reserve list.

Lastly, if the Sooners win out and win the Big 12, there is talk this two-loss Oklahoma team could sneak into the College Football Playoff again. More to come in the coming weeks assuming the Sooners stay hot.
