The Oklahoma Sooners are one win away from clinching the Big 12 South title earning the right to represent the division in the conference championship game December 1st in San Antonio, Texas.
Standing in OU's way are the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the Twilight Zone known as Lubbock. The Red Raiders currently sit at 4th place in the division with a 3-4 conference record. However, regardless of the record Lubbock is never an easy place to play. Bob Stoops spoke on the challenges of playing the Red Raiders on the road.
OU's pass rush greatly missed the presence of Austin English Saturday night against Baylor. Stoops was very clear that English would be back this week when asked about it.
One area where English won't be able to help out is in covering the most explosive receiver in the Big 12, Tech's Michael Crabtree. Obviously OU will need to know where he is at all times and Stoops testified to that.
Traditionally the Sooners have done well against Tech's offense but they've also sturggled a few times in Lubbock. Bob Stoops says that the Sooners know what the key factors in defending the Red Raider's offense now the questions is if they'll actually go out and do it.
