  • Know Your Enemy: Kansas State

    4-0 seems so much different than 3-1. A loss to Texas in Austin, while not utterly crippling, would have been pretty discouraging for the Cowboys, who are still searching for their place in this year’s Big 12 hierarchy. Texas players, coaches, and fans objected to the officiating, but a Big 12 supervisor said he was “generally pleased with how the game was worked."

  • Know Your Enemy: West Virginia

    OU had a week to get healthy, work on covering the spread, figure out how to run the ball, and look at West Virginia film. The number 23 Mountaineers come into Saturday's game supporting a 3 and 0 record, averaging 43 points per game and 543 yards of total offense. A challenge for a Mike Stoops defense that just gave up 603 to Tulsa. If you only look at the numbers, OU’s defense is pretty good. The Sooners give up 22 points and 361 yards per game. But The Golden Hurricane was a sharp reminder of how many issues OU can have with high power offenses. The Sooners will have to find a way to pressure WVU quarterback Skyler Howard. On the season, he’s completed 69% of his passes for 916 yards, giving up only one interception to his nine touchdowns. Against Maryland, Howard threw for almost 300 and four touchdowns. Howard's favorite target is 5-11 sophomore Shelton Gibson, who has four touchdown catches on the season and has racked up 329 yards. Considering OU’s past and present struggles with containing the Air Raid offense, they will have their hands full. When it comes to running the ball, the Mountaineers are getting about 220 yards on the ground. Junior Wendell Smallwood highlights the running back corps. Smallwood busted for 147 yards vs. Maryland he also has four touchdowns. Junior Rushel Shell also helped out on the way to 304 team rushing yards against the Terrapins. Read More
