Only 76 more days until the Oklahoma Sooners kickoff against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.

Three Truths and One Lie:76Branndon Braxton

Truth #1 - #76 Offensive Lineman Branndon Braxton (2005-2008) went undrafted in 2009, but was picked up by the Cleveland Browns.  He was later cut and now plays for the Las Vegas Locomotives in the UFL.

Truth #2 - On October 6th, 1976, #3 Oklahoma played #16 Texas to a 6-6 tie, in front of 72,032 people.

Truth #3 - The 1976 Oklahoma Sooners had a 9-2-1 overall record and a 5-2 Big Eight conference record and beat Wyoming  in the Fiesta Bowl. They earned a share of the Big8 Conference title.

Myth - According to Bob Stoops the “SEC’s Myth Trumps Its Reality”, as he points out the SEC bottom six are not doing   anything special and the conference as a whole hasn’t created a huge gap when compared to the other major conference. Nick Saban and Will Muschamp both fired back at Bob, but he made his point none the less.
