Friday Night Lights - OU/Tulsa Game Thread

New, 164 comments

OU faces their first "road test" tonight when they travel to Tulsa to take on the Golden Hurricane. Because it is a road trip I won't be attending which means I'll be here to discuss the game with you guys on this very thread. However, because it is a Friday night I need to go to my son's Jr. High football game first. His game starts at 5:30 so I won't miss much, if any, so don't panic if I'm not here by kickoff. Just go ahead and start discussing it without me.

OU 3-0, #4 AP - #4 Coaches

Tulsa 2-0, NR

Fun Fact: Oklahoma's defense has scored a touchdown in all three games this season.

Passing Leaders

TU: P. Smith, 43 of 66, 761 yards, 8 TDs, 2 INTs

Tackling Leaders

Official Machine Prediction: OU will overpower Tulsa's defense and score as much as they want to. On the other hand Tulsa will have the most potent offense of any team the Sooners have played to this point and will be a solid test for the defense. In the end Oklahoma walks away a 52 - 17 winner.
