Will you be at the game this Saturday? Well, Baker Mayfield has a message for you.
It’ll be tough to top the environment we created back in November of 2008 against Texas Tech, but I;m expecting big things from this crowd. Baker wants you to bring your A-game, so don’t disappoint him!
- The Oklahoma Sooners were firing on all cylinders offensively, and three OU players have been honored for their efforts against Oklahoma State. The Big 12 Conference announced its weekly award winners on Monday, and Baker Mayfield was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week. Additionally, Marquise Brown was named Newcomer of the Week and Austin Seibert was named Special Team Player of the Week.
- Speaking of Marquise Brown, here’s what he had to say about his 265-yard performance against Oklahoma State. Unfortunately, he wasn’t wearing his grill today.
- During this morning’s Big 12 coaches’ teleconference, Lincoln Riley mentioned that he doesn’t need to tell Mayfield to block out the hype. I have no problem with that whatsoever, as Mayfield is no stranger to the spotlight.
- ESPN’s bowl projections are out, and one of the two pundits projects OU to end up in the Sugar Bowl (one of the CFP semifinals) against Alabama. Sign me up! Bama fans are fun to drink with.
- OU’s game against TCU is part of an enormous weekend of college football action:
Three AP top-10 matchups on Saturday: Georgia-Auburn, Notre Dame-Miami, TCU-Oklahoma— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) November 6, 2017
1st time that's happened since Oct. 12, 2002.
- It looks like Saturday’s loss to Auburn was the final straw for Kevin Sumlin, as it now appears that he’s on his way out in College Station. This should have some major recruiting implications now and in the future.
- Bill Connelly ranked all 31 of Urban Meyer’s losses as a head coach, and OU’s September win landed in the middle of the pack.
- The Big Ten is terrible, and the fans of the schools in the East — which was supposed to be a great division — are panicking.
- This gem came from yesterday’s NYC Marathon:

“STICK TO SPORTS!”
- Speaking of the NYC Marathon, here’s how technology allowed a blind athlete to participate.
