Three games into the season and the Sooners still haven't been challenged! We figured North Texas would be a pushover, and they were. We thought Miami would be fast and strong, but they weren't. Now Utah State, who could be the weakest opponent on OU's schedule, has become the third team in a row to give up 50-plus to the Sooners.
On a day where only a few things went wrong and just about everything went right the Oklahoma Sooners again turned in one of the most dominating performances in college football.
Despite throwing his first interception of the season Sam Bradford delivered the performance that OU fans have come to expect from their new quarterback. Bradford connected on his first 11 passes of the game and finished the day completing 19 of 26 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns.
However, the Oklahoma spotlight belonged to the running backs on Saturday as Allen Patrick delivered his best performance of the season, going for 113 yards and a touchdown on 8 carries while DeMarco Murray ran for 100 yards and a score on just 4 carries.
On the other side of the ball Curtis Lofton intercepted a pass and ran it back 45 yards for a touchdown marking the third game in a row the Sooner defense has scored. OU's defense also gave up less than a 100 yards rushing and 100 yards passing, holding the Aggies to just 153 total net yards.
We'll get into position grades tomorrow and break down some concerns as well but as Sooner fans we should be feeling really good about our chances to win the 5th conference title of the Bob Stoops era. Not because OU beat up on a lower tear WAC opponent but because for three weeks now the Sooners have been one of the most dominating teams in the country and show absolutely no signs of slowing down.
