As the Oklahoma Sooners beatdown of the Oregon Ducks was playing out, social media was ablaze with thoughts on the game, the Sooners former head coach and the future of the program.
Though the final score shows a two-score win for the Sooners, they were up 30-3 at halftime, and were it not for several mental lapses in coverage, the game wouldn’t have gotten close.
After a first quarter that saw the two teams battle to a 6-3 lead for the Sooners, Oklahoma’s offense erupted and the defense settled in to go on a 24-0 run in the second quarter. And while the Ducks put forth an incredible effort in the second half to make the score respectable, it would have taken a miracle to actually come back from that far down.
Oregon did outscore the Sooners 29-17 in the second half, but the Sooners were in ball control mode and the defense wasn’t as sharp, allowing Anthony Brown to hit open receivers down the sideline for touchdowns.
Regardless of how it looked in the second half, the Oklahoma Sooners finished the 2021 season riding high with a big win over a top 15 ranked opponent from the Pac-12. There’s a lot to look forward to as the Sooners begin their offseason and a new era of Oklahoma Football under new head coach Brent Venables.

Marvin Mims Needed the Ball
USC should fire Lincoln solely based on how much Marvin Mims was underutilized

I’m witnessing an offensive game plan that is specifically designed to get the ball into the hands of playmakers quickly.

The Bob Stoops Effect
Is Oklahoma in the #CFBPlayoff right now in a world where Bob Stoops was at the helm all season?
Sooners look as fast and confident as they have at any point this season.

OU Softball Legend enjoying the show
They just looked different
Not that Oregon is world beaters but I’ve seen this team under perform against worst talent. The offense looks more sure of themselves and the defense is flying around. 😤
