NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma Sooners will face off against the epitome of discipline this evening as the Black Knights of Army make a visit to Norman. Coming off a win against Hawaii last week, Army (2-1) brings its vaunted triple-option attack to try to keep up with college football’s top offense in a battle of old-school heavyweights.

This game, produced by FOX Sports Oklahoma, will only be available on a pay-per-view basis. Local cable viewers can watch on a dedicated pay-per-view channel via participating Oklahoma program providers, and the broadcast can be viewed nationwide via participating satellite and Telco distributors.

For cord cutters, the game can be seen on SoonerSports.tv and the SoonerSports2Go apps, including on streaming devices such as Apple TV and Roku, at the online pay-per-view price of $54.99. You can view all the details on how to watch at SoonerSports.com.

Week 4 College Football Viewing Guide (plus Jack’s gambling picks)

While the triple-option attack is vaunted and potent, the offensive prowess of the Kyler Murray-led Sooner offense will be too much for the Army to keep up all night. The Black Knights, who lost their season opener, 34-14, to David Cutcliffe’s Duke squad, have been on an upswing in the last couple of seasons (and weeks) and will be tough to defend if the OU defense isn’t disciplined early and doesn’t tackle well. I expect the contest to be competitive through Army’s first few possessions, but as one of the nation’s least potent defenses, the Knights will be on their heels the entire night when the Sooners dynamic attack takes the field on the other side.

Today’s contest is the fourth time Oklahoma and Army will face off, with the Sooners holding a 2-1 series advantage. To complete the second leg of the home-and-home series, Oklahoma will travel to West Point to take on Army on September 26, 2020. Jeff Monken in 2017 led his squad to their first 10-win season since 1996, and the program should certainly continue to be competitive for years to come under his guidance.

This evening, however, Kyler Murray will continue his Heisman campaign with yet another stellar outing, and Oklahoma will outlast Army in a night of festivities in Norman.
