2018 Football

Pre-Season

FAU

  • OU Throttles FAU, 63-14 - Well, that was much to do about nothing. For the past week and a half, we at The Schooner Blog have been pumping up the FAU Owls as a serious threat. They certainly fit the role on paper. And then the game started. After a solid opening drive, the Owls looked to be a decent … Continue reading "OU Throttles FAU, 63-14"
  • The Schooner Pod: Week 1 - Football is back. Bobby and Jamison break down the FAU game and make their predictions for Week 1’s big games in the Big 12 and around the country. UPDATE: We are now on Apple Podcasts! Make sure to subscribe and rate us Five stars!
  • Game Week: FAU - At long last, here we are: game week in Oklahoma. On Saturday at 11 AM, football season will be officially back in Norman. No more quarterback controversy, no more watching preseason Browns games to get your fix, no more need to gobble up any bit of information during preseason camp and no more watching the … Continue reading "Game Week: FAU"

UCLA

  • Delay of Recap: UCLA - Pretty much everything went right for the Sooners in yesterday’s 42-21 romp over the UCLA Bruins. The offense was clicking, the defense stifling and the special teams had another great game. However, it’s hard to get past the Rodney Anderson injury. At the end of the first quarter Anderson went down with an apparent knee … Continue reading "Delay of Recap: UCLA"
  • Game Week: UCLA - After a 63-14 romp over FAU, the Sooners welcome the UCLA Bruins in a game that could get just as bad as last Saturday. Oklahoma looked as good as possible in week one, while UCLA….didn’t. The Bruins bombed in their first game under head coach Chip Kelly, losing at home to a mediocre Cincinnati team … Continue reading "Game Week: UCLA"

@ Iowa State

  • Ames - Oklahoma sports has taken me amazing places. I’ve seen the Sooners play from coast to coast, from the Rose Bowl in Pasadena to Pro Player/LandShark/Sun Life Stadium in Miami. I once watched a basketball game on the floor of a football colosseum. I’ve witnessed Baker plant his flag in The Shoe, three bouts of Bradford … Continue reading "Ames"
  • Delay of Recap: Iowa State - Okay, so my trip to Ames didn’t exactly go to plan; I spend most of it being sick and getting sicker in brutal heat. I’m still recovering, but better late than never. Whelp, it’s only week three and panic mode has already set in for some parts of Sooner Nation. Did OU lose? Not at … Continue reading "Delay of Recap: Iowa State"
  • Game Week: Iowa State - It’s time for revenge. Sure, it didn’t keep OU out of the playoff last season and several big pieces are gone (see Mayfield, Baker), but you have to think that the Sooners will have a little extra fire after last season’s baffling loss to Iowa State at home. This time, the Sooners travel to Ames … Continue reading "Game Week: Iowa State"

Army

  • Army-Navy Preview - Editor’s Note: While the college football bowl season is still a bit away, the season isn’t over yet: we still have Army-Navy. While we know a little bit about Army (who should be ranked), we brought in a guest writer and active duty Marine to get you both educated and hyped for one of the … Continue reading "Army-Navy Preview"
  • Delay of Recap: Army - Sometimes, all you can do is take a deep breath, take the win and move on. Saturday is one of those times. I spent all last week trying to convince myself that the Army triple option threat wouldn’t be an issue, that the OU run defense had improved. Even if the Sooners struggled, I thought … Continue reading "Delay of Recap: Army"
  • The Weekend Spread: Week 4 - Bobby: 2-5 (11-12) Jamison: 2-5 (11-12) Blake: 4-3 (13-10) Last Week It was a big week for the Big 12 with some major non-conference wins for Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech. Despite the loss from his Frogs, it was also a big week for the CrowleyMan, as Blake took a significant two game lead from the … Continue reading "The Weekend Spread: Week 4"

@ TCU

  • A New Leaf: OU beats TCU 52-27 - After a century long bye week, the Sooners returned to the field with a resounding 52-27 win over the TCU Horned Frogs. There was some anxiety with how the Oklahoma defense would perform after ditching Mile Stoops as DC and the reviews were generally “meh?”. There were a few great moments (some great breaks that … Continue reading "A New Leaf: OU beats TCU 52-27"
  • Gameday Guide: TCU - Over my years here at OU and traveling the Big 12, one town in particular stands out to me as the clear favorite: Fort Worth. Yes, yes, I know it’s a city. And while it might be cheating to put a major city as my favorite place to visit in a conference full of one … Continue reading "Gameday Guide: TCU"
  • Game Week: TCU - December 2nd, 2017 seems so far away. A lot has happened since the last time the Sooners and Frogs met at Jerry World on that unusually warm December day; the Sooners both made and lost the Rose Bowl, Baker Mayfield won the Heisman, got drafted by the Cleveland Browns and now is on his way … Continue reading "Game Week: TCU"

@ West Virginia

  • Notes from OU-West Virginia - Friday night was a wild time. However, I would be remised if I didn’t give some some more detail notes on what happened in Morgantown. This defense didn’t do much better point wise, but damn did they put in some effort. And honestly, without their performance, OU loses that game. The two scoop and score … Continue reading "Notes from OU-West Virginia"
  • Game Week: West Virginia - Friday, November 23rd 7:00 PM, ESPN It’s here. Since the schedule came out way back last Fall this game has been circled in red with a double underline. A road trip to Morgantown, on Black Friday, against a high level quarterback and surrounded by a sea of screaming blue and gold fans jacked up on … Continue reading "Game Week: West Virginia"

Texas (Big 12 Championship)

Alabama (Orange Bowl)

  • Delay of Recap: Alabama - So as quickly as it came, the 2018 Oklahoma football season is now over, with the Sooners yet again losing in the College Football Playoff Semifinals, this time at the hands of Alabama. The Tide quickly jumped out to a 28-0 lead on the Sooners digging them into a hole that they simply could not … Continue reading "Delay of Recap: Alabama"
  • Alabama thumps Oklahoma, ends season, 45-34 - I just….ugh. It’s been a long night. This has been a really memorable season, but this team clearly wasn’t national championship caliber. There are brighter things on the horizon for the Sooners; this is just the beginning. Congrats to the Alabama Crimson Tide on the win. Full article coming tomorrow.
  • The Schooner Pod: Orange Bowl - It’s finally time: the Orange Bowl is Saturday. The Sooners face their toughest challenge yet in the Crimson Tide and the guys are ready to break down the injury news, Alabama’s biggest threats, OU’s path to an upset, our predictions for the game and more.
