No. 14 Oklahoma (2-1) at No. 24 Texas Tech (4-0) Oct. 6, 2:30 p.m. CT Jones AT&T Stadium (Lubbock, Texas) TV: ABC/ESPN2 Line: OU -5 Not to get all dramatic on you, but it's tough to overstate how important Saturday's game is for Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops and, perhaps more importantly, his coaching staff. The natives are restless in Norman and will soon demand some scalps if the Sooners don't start getting their act together. Will they beat the heat, a least for a week? Watch: *OU's run-to-pass ratio. OU needs to use the running game to take the pressure off Landry Jones and not force him to throw 60 times to win the game. *How does OU lean on the run while still getting Jones comfortable in the passing game? It seems like former offensive coordinator Kevin Wison would use the quick easy passes to Ryan Broyles to get Jones comfortable early, then incrementally increase the complexity in the passing game. OU needs to fi...

NORMAN, Okla. Landry Jones doesn't complete a pass or throw an interception. Running back Brennan Clay never gets a carry or scores a touchdown and Whitney Hand and Morgan Hook of the women's basketball team never even suit up.

Oklahoma back on track after knocking off Texas Tech

After losing in Norman two weeks ago to Kansas State, Oklahoma did what good teams tend to do.  They got up off that mat, dusted themselves off, and then brought the wood to a solid Texas Tech team. Don't let the final stats fool you.  The Sooners only outgained Tech by 20 yards on the night (370 to 350),  but for the final two-and-a-half quarters, this game was all Oklahoma...

Landry Jones & #17 Oklahoma Tries To Avoid Getting Wrecked By Tech

Pre-season top-10 ranked Oklahoma is still trying to figure out their team’s identity as we enter the first weekend of October. That is usually not a good sign for a successful season at any school, let alone one with the rich tradition of Oklahoma. Because of a scheduling quirk due to another round of conference reshuffling, the Sooners are coming off their second bye in the last...

Oklahoma 41, Texas Tech 20: Salty defense helps Sooners reverse course

If the loss to Kansas State two weeks ago represented a jarring break from the norm for Oklahoma football, the Sooners’ domination of Texas Tech on Saturday signified a promising correction. OU did what it always seems to do under Bob Stoops: bounce back from defeat. The Sooners hadn’t lost back-to-back games since 2003 and rarely drop a game coming off an open date. ...

September Rewind: What We Know After 1 Month: Big 12

One month into the season and for most it has been four-five games into a 12 game schedule. With conference play just beginning for most, there’s still a ton to be determined as we head towards the coming months but with the smaller sample size that CFB offers in contrast to the NFL, it’s not too early to take a look at a few things. Whether it was non-conference games, early...
