Oklahoma Sooners Football 2014 News and Updates
2/6/14 - The Oklahoma Sooners had another stellar season for the books last year. After going 11-2 (7-2 Big 12), they received an at-large bid to appear in the Sugar Bowl, where they took down titans, the Alabama Crimson Tide (45-61), to finish on a high note. This year, former QB Blake Bell has decided to move to tight end, which peacefully clears the way for Trevor Knight to take full control under center. Additionally, OU landed new recruit 4-star Justice Hansen, a promising young QB for added depth. The Sooners bid farewell to superstar RB Brandon Clay for the NFL Draft, but OU is still pretty well stocked at the position, with the likes of Keith Ford, Alex Ross and 5-star recruit Joe Mixon. Unfortunately, Aaron Colvin, the fourth-best cornerback prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft from OU, tore his ACL at Senior Bowl practice. Colvin is still optimistic of his Draft chances, after all, no other Big 12 program has produced more NFL Draft picks over the last five tears than OU, so keep an eye out and watch your Sooners do big things in college and the pros this year!
10/29/13 – The Sooners are coming off their biggest win of the season thus far, knocking off the previously undefeated Texas Tech Red Raiders. Oklahoma moved to No. 12 in the BCS standings and like the Red Raiders, are now 7-1 overall and 4-1 in the Conference. Another tough test is ahead; the Sooners travel to Waco, Texas next Thursday to face the #6 Baylor Bears who are currently 7-0 and first in the Big 12. Oklahoma will look to stop Baylor’s big plays and continue to do what they do best, and that is run the football. Oklahoma has just one remaining home game; that is, against Iowa State (11/17). Oklahoma Sooners vs. Iowa State Cyclones Football tickets start at just $34.

In 2013 Coach Stoops will become the winningest coach in Oklahoma football history. But the two-time Walter Camp Coach of the Year and his Oklahoma Sooners team are solely focused on a National Championship. Their last appearance was in 2008 vs. the Florida Gators. The Sooners continue to be in the race but big losses late in the season have cost them greatly.
CBS Sports revealed that the Sooners have the toughest non-conference schedule in the nation this year which includes at Notre Dame (avg. $567), one of three teams they have lost to in Norman in the last two seasons. Oklahoma is the only powerhouse in the Top 5 on the list, as most elite programs prefer to get wins over strength of schedule. The Sooners football schedule does not get any easier, Big 12 conference games against Oklahoma State Cowboys Football in the Bedlam Series (avg. $300) and Texas Longhorns Football in the Red River Rivalry Game (avg. $446) will both be played on the road. Oklahoma football tickets on the road are averaging $340, more than double the price of the average ticket at Memorial Stadium ($151) this season.
