Happy Monday, friends and fans!

With the Oklahoma Sooners having the past weekend off due to a rise in COVID-19 cases and contact tracing, Lincoln Riley noted on Monday that the status of his team is currently unknown as far as the upcoming game against the Baylor Bears is concerned. For now, the fourth year head coach believes that there is still ‘a shot’ the season’s final home game will be played this Saturday, despite not having seen his own players in nearly a week.

Fortunately, OU players and the coaching staff has been allowed back into the football facility following Monday morning’s tests.

Coming down this final two-week stretch before the Big 12 Championship Game takes place is proving to be a perilous path to navigate, but if Oklahoma can weather the storm and field a team up to its own standards, it will have the opportunity to defend its five consecutive conference titles.

Now onto this week’s Monday edition of Hot Links! Kick-off times for Oklahoma’s final two regular season contests have been updated, some big name recruits could be attending OU’s game unofficially this weekend, Vandy parts ways with Derek Mason and more!
