    Oklahoma Sooners

    The #2 ranked Sooners hosted the visiting #15 BYU Cougars after having a bye week to begin the season. After a much needed vacation, Kutis17 and his Sooners started the season with a bang. They had a commanding 21-10 lead at half time which turned into a blowout as they didn't let the visitors put points up in the second half. In turn, they would add another 42 points. Junior Demarco Murray was the player of the game for the Sooners as he rushed for 114 yards on 21 attempts that led to 3 touchdowns. In the air, Murray caught 4 passes for 99 yards and 1 td. Junior QB Sam Bradford had a monster game by completing 13 of 20 passes for 287 yards and 3 tds. Senior Auston English was the key player on the defensive side of the ball as he had 8 tackles, 3 of which were for losses. He added two sacks to his stat sheet as well.

    The Sooners had a great game to open the season and they hope they can continue this as they take on Tulsa(1-0) in week 3.

    OU 51 - KSU 7

    Sooners Roll Wildcats 51-7

    With the Sooner Nation in an uproar after two early season conference losses, it was time for the football team to get refocused and try to finish the season strong. Unfortunately, for Coach Bill Snyder and the KSU Wildcats, they were directly in the firing line of these angry Sooners.

    The Sooner defense flat out dominated this one giving up 6 first downs and 128 total offensive yards. Complimented by a balance offense gaining 483 total offensive yards on 275 passing and 206 rushing that left the Wildcats licking their wounds in a 51-7 loss at Owen Field on Saturday.

    The win moves the Oklahoma Sooner's record to 6-2 (2-2) for the season. Next week, Oklahoma will travel to Lincoln to take on the revigorated Husker program.​

    EVEN IN VICTORY, SOONERS LOSE

    As time expired in Lincoln, the scoreboard read OU 41 Nebraska 10. The stats showed the Sooners racked up 530 total yards of offense while only giving up 207 ot the Huskers.

    What the scoreboard didn't show was the injury list as the Sooners continue to fall on hard luck. The latest victim is DeMarco Murray who is scheduled to miss the next 4 weeks due to back spasms. With the season winding down, it is likely the Sooner Nation has seen DeMarco the last time in crimson & cream. After an injury plagued first two years in Norman, critics labeled him as soft and wondered if he would ever live up to his potential. In 2009, Murray answered his critics with a special season earning himself a place in the discussion for the Heisman Trophy.

    Murray is the second preseason All-American to go down for the Sooners. LB, Travis Lewis has missed most of the 2009 season and has opted for surgery to begin his rehab and prepare for 2010. OU will finish the season with 4 starters on the injured list. That is, if there are no further injuries occur.

    The win moves the Oklahoma Sooner's record to 7-2 (3-2) for the season. Next week, Oklahoma will take on the Texas A&M Fighting Aggies.​

    Oklahoma Offense Struggles in Win


    The #8 Oklahoma Sooners took the field Saturday looking to move beyond the injuries and finish out the season strong. But the product on the field was an indication these Sooners may struggle for the remainder of 2009.

    Oklahoma got off to slow start giving up 3 personal fouls on third downs and a fake punt all in the first quarter but were able to score one TD to have a 7-3 lead. In the second, the Sooners extended their lead 21-3 led by the defense and special teams putting the offense in great scoring possession.

    In the second half, Oklahoma lost all focus dropping 10 passes, and at one point, 7 consecutive.

    Coach Wildcatter78 was really disappointed after the game. "You know, we needed the possession guys to step up to help our offense but they didn't perform. We will re-evaluate and get guys in there that aren't afraid to catch the ball."

    Next up, Oklahoma travels to Lubbock to face the Red Raiders.
