Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: OU-Texas Eve Edition

Lincoln Riley is saying that he liked what he saw from the team this week in practice. Let’s hope he isn’t just blowing smoke.

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Texas Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Friday, friends and fans!

The field inside the historic Cotton Bowl is officially prepped and ready for some football. In less than 24 hours from now, the 116th meeting between the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns will finally kick off.

Oof... that midfield logo is absolutely atrocious.

OU fans, keep your fingers crossed that the only players scoring in either end zone on Saturday are wearing Crimson & Cream. Hey, a guy can dream. Now although both teams are limping into the fairgrounds, this contest is still shaping up as another classic battle in one of college football’s most intense rivalries.

Remember kids, Boomer Sooner and Texas sucks!

Now onto this week’s Friday edition of Hot Links! Alex Grinch needs to consider personnel changes, UT’s major defensive weakness lies in its secondary, Thursday Night Football briefly resembled Monday Night RAW and more!

  • On Friday, Lincoln Riley said he liked what he saw from the team this week in practice. Oklahoma is coming off back-to-back regular season losses for the first time in over two decades, and the Sooners will have their work cut out for them once again this Saturday against their archrival — the Texas Longhorns.

  • Wichita State Shockers head basketball coach Gregg Marshall is under an internal investigation by university officials after allegations were made regarding physical and verbal abuse toward former players.
  • Chicago Bears DE Khalil Mack is a known freak athlete around the NFL, and on Thursday night he welcomed Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie OT Tristan Wirfs to the league with this incredible hip toss following a sack on Tom Brady. Keep in mind, Wirfs checks in at over 320 pounds. All I can say to this breathtaking move is my goodness, I’m honestly stunned. In the end, Mack’s Bears beat the Bucs, 20-19.
