Sooner4OU Commentary: This is going to be an exciting game that will be determined, in my opinion, by OU’s ability to stop the run (OSU’s Randle is a strong back) and on turn-overs. If the Sooners can keep Randle in check and come out with a positive turn-over margin versus the Cowboys, then it should be a another Sooner Bedlam win. What do you think?
Article Excerpt: After what happened at West Virginia Saturday night, history will be kind to the Mountaineers’ Tavon Austin. His 572 all-purpose yards fell six shy of an NCAA record.
It will be kind to Stedman Bailey. His 13 catches for 205 yards and four touchdowns complemented Austin’s 334 rushing yards dynamically.
History will be damning to the Oklahoma defense. Before Saturday, the most yards OU had ever surrendered in a single game was 616.
West Virginia went for 778, including 458 on the ground.
This just seven days after Baylor had, in the words of OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, “opened up Pandora’s box” with 252 rushing yards.
