Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: The Big 12 title game, the legend of Rodney Anderson, and more!

The Big 12 has a title game, but it doesn’t really need it in 2017.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Ohio State Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

OU Links:

  • Oklahoma is hosting a ton of elite 2018 prospects this weekend (more on that later), but there’s also plenty of positive news involving the 2019 class. 2019 CB Chris Steele recently released a top 5, and the Oklahoma Sooners made the cut.
  • Every college football fan from San Diego to Bangor, Maine knows who Orlando Brown is (probably), but Oklahoma’s other OT has been as solid as anyone in 2017. Here’s why Brooke Pryor says he’s been such a vital part of this team.
  • We posted some stuff yesterday about how national folks have been short-changing Baker Mayfield lately, and Pete Fiutak of College Football news echoes our sentiments.
  • Joe Buettner is in charge of a new OU Daily series on OU’s five Heisman winners, and the first installment is now available. Check it out!
  • Here are the most-watched games of the college football season thus far. Unsurprisingly, OU-Ohio State is way up there.
  • USA Today’s college football salary database has been updated, in case you’re interested. Nick Saban is by far the highest-paid coach, and you won’t hear any complaints from me. Also, I’d expect Riley’s current deal to be restructured if he keeps up his current pace.

National Links:

  • Would you rather be a Viking or a pirate? Mike Leach weighs in:


  • Amazon is apparently starting a new service that allows couriers to unlock your front door. Would you allow a delivery person to unlock your front door? Don’t think I would, but then again I might not have trusted Uber or Lyft before those services caught on, so you never know.
  • Speaking of Lyft, they’re capitalizing on the whole Stranger Things craze. I can’t wait for the new season, but this doesn’t seem overly appealing.
