There's been a lot made of the team draft for the Sooners annual spring game over the past three years. However, there won't be one this year as Oklahoma's football coaches have changed up the format this year.
Due to the number of injuries, transfers, graduation and players leaving early for the NFL Coach Stoops has decided to change the format this year back to a strictly offense vs. defense game. The last time Oklahoma used a format similar to this was in 2008. According to NewsOK.com...
The offense received one point for a first down, one point for an extra point, two points for any play longer than 30 yards, three points for a field goal and six points for a touchdown.
The defense received one point for a stop, two points for holding the offense to three plays and a punt, two points for a fourth-down stop, three points for a turnover and nine points for a touchdown.
The defense dominated that year with corner Dominique Franks having an outstanding game by regularly picking off future Heisman winner Sam Bradford and leading the defense to a 69-40 win. The Red/White game kicks off this Saturday at 2:00.
