    Boomer Sooner 2010

    Season Preview

    With the departure of DeMarco Murray, the Sooners 2010 hopes rest on the arm of Sam Bradford. Bradford will look to connect with talented redshirt Junior Wide Receiver Ryan Boyles, who he connected with for over 700 yards last season. Bradford will have to learn how to make this offense go without his favorite target, Mackey Award winner, Jermaine Gresham. Also looking to step up in the passing game are wide receivers Jameel Owens and DeJuan Miller, along with tight end James Hanna. Talented reshirt Senior Mossis Madu, who was solid last year when he stepped in for Murray, who finished the season on the sidelines with injuries. Madu will be spelled by redshirt sophomores Jermie Calhoun and Jonathan Miller, who will both also return kicks for the Sooners.

    On defense, the Sooners lost a few guys, but have plenty of returners and talented players to step in and fill voids. The defense is led by redshirt senior, preseason All-American Gerald McCoy. McCoy will anchor the defense at defensive tackle and make it nearly impossible for opponents to run up the middle. The Sooners have two talented players to control the edge in another preseason All-American, outside linebacker Travis Lewis, as well as defensive end Jeremy Beal. The secondary is led by cornerback Dominique Franks, yet another All-American and redshirt junior safety Desmond Jackson. Franks, Jackson, and returning starting cornerback Jonathan Nelson will help new starter Kevin Brent learn the defense.

    Finally, junior punter Tress Way, will handle all kicking duties this year for the Sooners who enter the season ranked #1. The Sooners have won 22 of their last 25 games look to bring home a long overdue national championship. The Sooners will be favored in their first 3 games leading up to what should be a Top 10 showdown in Stillwater as Bedlam comes early this year. The week after that, the Sooners will be headed to Austin for the Red River Shootout and look to get revenge for the only blemish on their record last year. A few weeks later, the Sooners will host a tough Colorado team, then travel to Columbia to face the Missouri Tigers and Co-Big XII Coach of the Year, fsuprime in another tough rivalry game. The road is filled with potholes, but the Sooners look up for the challenge.

    Week 2

    Tallahassee - Oklahoma traveled to Doak Campbell Stadium to face the unranked and underrated Florida State Seminoles. Early on, the Sooners moved the ball effectively, but saw their drives stall before the redzone. Tress Way kicked field goals from 38, 49, and 44 yards. Florida State's offense then came alive as they drove down the field and scored a touchdown on a 9-yard pass from Christian Ponder to Bert Reed making the score 9-7 Oklahoma. Just before the half, Desmond Jackson recovered a fumble and returned it 84 yards for a touchdown making the halftime score 16-7.

    Oklahoma received the ball to start the second half and once again the offense stalled, but Way put three more points on the board from 46 yards out, taking the score to 19-7. Florida State then scored on their next 2 possessions on touchdown passes to wide receiver Taiwan Easterling and tight end Ja'Baris Little of 21 and 11 yards respectively. Ponder had led his Noles to their first lead of the game at 20-19. Oklahoma responded as the offense scored their first offensive touchdown of the season on a pass from Sam Bradford to G Caldwell from 7 yards out and the 2-point conversion attempt to go up by 7 failed, making the score 25-20 heading into the 4th quarter. The 4th quarter saw only one score as the Sooners put the game out of reach with 2:31 left on a 6 yard scamper by Jermie Calhoun to make the final score 32-20.

    The Sooners defense, led by middle linebacker Austin Box, who had 11 tackles, 2 for a loss, saved the day as Florida State couldn't convert any of their 8 3rd down plays. All-American defensive tackle Gerald McCoy had 4 of the Sooners' 6 sacks and defensive end RJ Washington intercepted a pass.

    Tress Way was awarded player of the game for the Sooners after his career high 4 field goal performance. Ponder who threw for 272 yards and 3 TDs on 26 of 38 passing was named player of the game for FSU.

    Next week, Oklahoma will host Pittsburgh in their 2010 home opener.

    Week 3

    Norman-In their 2010 home opener, the Oklahoma Sooners offense finally took flight. Mossis Madu led the Sooners' offense rushing for 93 yards on 25 carries, scoring 4 touchdowns. Jermie Calhoun added 35 yards on 9 carries for a solid rushing attack. Sam Bradford had an effective day, completing 19 of his 23 passes for 227 yards. Reshirt freshman Jaz Reynolds and redshirt junior Ryan Broyles caught 4 passes each for 72 and 71 yards respectively. Mossis Madu caught 3 passes for 21 yards as the Sooners rolled to a 42-10 victory.

    The Pittsburgh Panthers took the opening kickoff and drove down the field in 1:48, capped off by Dion Lewis punching it in from 4 yards out giving the Panthers their first and last lead of the day. Dominique Franks then returned the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown. Mossis Madu capped off the 1st quarter scoring with a 1 yard touchdown giving the Sooners their first lead of the day at 14-7. Kevin Harper kicked a 51-yard field goal for Pittsburgh, closing the gap to 14-10 and that would be the last points the Panthers would put on the board for the day. Madu closed out the half scoring his 2nd and 3rd touchdowns of the day, giving the Sooners a 28-10 halftime lead. The Sooners scored one touchdown in each of the last 2 quarters, with Madu scoring his 4th TD of the day on a 4-yard run and Reynolds hauling in a 17-yard pass from reserve quarterback Drew Allen.

    The Sooners improve to 2-0 and head to Cincinnati to face a talented Bearcat team who are currently also 2-0 and ranked 19. This will be the first of 3 straight ranked opponents for the Sooners who face their 2 biggest rivals in the following weeks. The Bearcats are hoping to catch the Sooners looking past them to those big matchups, but Coach Alexander will do all he can to keep his team focused.

    Sooners' Tailspin Continues

    A week after losing to in-state rival Oklahoma State, the Sooners unravel in Dallas in the Red River Shootout. Up against a very talented #3 ranked Texas Longhorns team, halfway through the 2nd quarter, Oklahoma had the first of its' 7 turnovers and it was costly as Aaron Williams returned an interception 58 yards for a touchdown. On the ensuing kickoff, Cameron Kenney fumbles for the Sooners, giving the Longhorns a short field and they put their 2nd touchdown on the board within 33 seconds. Oklahoma then drove down to the redzone and Sam Bradford was picked off again, this time by Chykie Brown, who took it 99 yards to the house. The Longhorns added a field goal in the 2nd half and called off the dogs winning 24-0.

    Sam Bradford 20-34 243 yards 3 ints sacked 3 times 1 fumble
    Mossis Madu 11 carries 31 yards 1 fumble
    Cameron Kenney 6 catches 78 yards

    Up next, the Sooners look to rebound when the 2-3 (0-1) Iowa State Cyclones come to Norman next week.

    Sooners Get Healthy Against the Cyclones

    Iowa State came to Norman at a bad time. Oklahoma was coming off a 2-game losing streak and in a bad mood. The Sooner offense sputtered for a little bit in the 1st quarter, but quickly gained traction and racked up 447 yards. Mossis Madu had his first 100-yard rushing game of the season gaining 117 yards on 12 carries including a 79-yard touchdown. Sam Bradford had his best game of the season completing 17 of his 20 pass attempts for 278 yards and 5 touchdowns. Although this was not a tough opponent, the Sooners are hoping this game will help them get on track.

    Next up, the Colorado Buffaloes and their rushing attack come to town to face the Sooners who will be looking to get to .500 in conference play

    Key Stats
    Sam Bradford 17-20 278 yards 5 TDs
    Mossis Madu 12 carries 117 yards 1 TD
    Cameron Kenney 7 receptions 124 yards 1 TD

    Orange Bowl Champions
    Oklahoma 14-7 Clemson

    Oklahoma edges Clemson 14-7 to cap off their 2010 season. In a game where the offense struggled, which has plagued OU in big games all season, the Sooners found just enough to score two late touchdowns to beat the Tigers. The game was scoreless until halfway through the 3rd quarter when Kyle Parker hit T Ashe on a 12 yard crossing route to put Clemson up 7-0. Sam Bradford lead the Sooners on a great drive to answer, finishing it off with a 15 yard strike to Ryan Broyles. The Sooners defense, which played well all day couldn't stop the Clemson attack until, Jonathan Nelson intercepted Parker in the endzone. Then Bradford drove the Sooners 76 yards down to the Tigers 4-yardline, where Jeremie Calhoun took a handoff off tackle to the right and into the endzone for the game-winning score. Oklahoma's defense held one last time and they were able to run the final minute off the clock for the win.

    The Sooners finish the season 11-2, but Sooners lose 15 seniors 8 of which are starters that will need to be replaced in the offseason. A likely Top 5 finish in the polls should give the Sooners a much needed recruiting boost as they only have 8 recruits signed. The good news is they don't have any needs that must be filled, however they are losing Sam Bradford on offense, which will be tough to deal with. 5 of their 6 top players are graduating and the 6th, outside linebacker Travis Lewis, will likely opt for the NFL.
