One win in three outings is not the start Bob Stoops, the Sooners and their fans were hoping for. The good news is it is still very early in the season and plenty of time to get things turned around.

It is doubtful any team in the Big 12 this year – and perhaps only a handful in the country, if that – would have done any better than the Sooners against two well-coached and very talented teams in Houston and, even more so, Ohio State.

Nevertheless, it is a fact that Oklahoma did not look sharp and was unable to sustain drives in key situations in either of its two losses. And the same was true on defense. The Sooners couldn’t get third-down stops when they really needed them and yielded too many big plays.

Baker Mayfield takes blame for Oklahoma Sooners' offensive struggles

NORMAN – Oklahoma Sooners head coach Bob Stoops doesn’t traditionally like to call out players by name for a bad play or throw a player under the bus, but the Sooners only have one quarterback.
He wasn’t the first person to say that Baker Mayfield could have made much better reads against Houston. Mayfield spoke just a few minutes before Stoops and called himself “greedy” for not taking the options within the offense.
“I’ve just got to be better,” Mayfield said. “I know what to expect of myself, and knowing how the team reacts to my play, it’s even more important. Just getting the ball out and keeping everybody on a positive note and keeping the attitude good and on the bright side is important for me, and ultimately, that’s getting the ball out of my hands, getting it into their hands and letting them make plays.”
Mayfield pointed to a few plays again Houston where he tried to make a big play down field instead of taking an open option underneath that would have kept the offense going. There was also a big third-down failure on an option play that could have gone for big yards in the second quarter.
Most of those bad plays came in the second half after a late, first-half field goal, a Kick-6 and back-to-back fumbles took away all of Oklahoma’s momentum and forced the Sooners out of their offensive comfort zone.
It seemed like Mayfield tried to narrow the 16-point deficit with one deep play.
“Something that takes a little longer to progress, and that’s not how the offense operates,” Stoops said. “We had guys in certain spots that would have been easier throws and would have helped us.”

Baker Mayfield shoulders blame for Sooners' loss: 'That's all on me'


NORMAN, Okla. — When it comes to the negative, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops prefers to avoid singling out his players.

But during his weekly Monday news conference, Stoops couldn’t help but reference one player on the heels of the Sooners’ 33-23 Week 1 loss to the Houston Cougars.

Stoops, however, was a few minutes too late. That player had already singled himself out.

“That’s all on me,” quarterback Baker Mayfield said of the offense’s second-half problems. “[The receivers] got open. That’s all on me as the leader of the team and the captain. It’s my job to deliver the ball. They got open for me. They did their part.

“Now, it’s my responsibility to just deliver it to them.”

Oklahoma’s offense came out humming in the opening minutes of the game, scoring two touchdowns and a field goal through its first four drives. Mayfield’s decisiveness was a big reason, as he quickly delivered passes to the Sooners’ top playmakers — notably Joe Mixon.

“Just comparing the first and second half, the first half I got the ball out of my hands quick, eliminated the best part of Houston’s defense, which we had game-planned,” Mayfield said. “Then second half, obviously things changed. I didn’t get the ball out as quick as I wanted.”

In that second half, Oklahoma’s offense dissembled into Mayfield scrambling around haplessly in the backfield trying to make a big play that wasn’t there. As a result, the Sooners didn’t score until a meaningless touchdown in the final two minutes when the outcome had already been decided.

“I only have one quarterback. I don’t like to throw players [under the bus] or name names, but at times, Baker held on [to the ball] and instead of taking what was open and what was there in his first read, was waiting for something different,” Stoops said. “Something that takes a little longer to progress, and that’s not how the offense operates. We had guys in certain spot that would have been easier throws and would’ve helped us.”

Mayfield’s go-for-broke, second-half style resulted in several ugly numbers. He ended up with more rushing attempts (13) than Mixon and Samaje Perine combined (12), to go along with a negative rushing total. After completing all nine of his passing attempts in the first half, Mayfield had nine incompletions in the second. He also took five sacks that, as Stoops pointed out, were more on him than the receivers not getting open or the offensive line protecting.

No Big 12 team has figured out a way to crack West Virginia’s defense this season. Three have tried. All three have failed to score 20 points. The Mountaineers’ next foe, Oklahoma State, might have the goods to get the job done.

The key to the Cowboys pulling off an upset of the No. 10 ranked Mountaineers on Saturday in Stillwater is a freshman ready for the national spotlight: Justice Hill.

The rookie running back is the No. 3 rusher in Big 12 conference play behind Texas’ D’Onta Foreman and Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon. He’s getting 119 yards per game in his first foray in league play, with three 100-yard performances and a touchdown in each of his past four games.

That 119 per game puts him on pace for a 1,100-yard debut season, a possibility made even more impressive by the fact he had a light non-conference workload of just 24 carries over three games. Establishing him and the Pokes’ run game early against West Virginia would be a smart move.



With 10th-ranked West Virginia coming to Stillwater on Saturday, the 6-0 Mountaineers present the toughest test for Oklahoma State this season.

ESPN college football writer Mitch Sherman is under the impression the Cowboys might be West Virginia’s biggest remaining threat on the road to a Big 12 championship.

Here is a portion of Sherman’s take on Saturday’s matchup.




Meet your College Football Playoff wrecking crew.

These are the most talented teams that have fallen out of the playoff picture but still have the potential to ruin it for somebody else. Some have only one loss, most have two.

Beware of all of them.

The season isn’t done yet, and neither are these teams:

Spoiler alert: Nov. 5 vs. Alabama; Nov. 24 vs. Texas A&M

Stating the case: The Tigers have a newfound energy under interim coach Ed Orgeron, and it was evident in their 42-7 drubbing of Missouri. LSU’s abundance of talent was on full display, even with Leonard Fournette sidelined with an ankle injury, as Derrius Guice‘s ability to break long runs electrified the crowd. Quarterback Danny Etling didn’t turn the ball over, and that will be key for any upsets to happen in November. In spite of losses to Wisconsin and Auburn, LSU isn’t out of the SEC race just yet. The more likely scenario, though, is tripping up one of the top two teams in November.

FPI says: Alabama (59.4 percent chance of beating LSU) and Texas A&M (62.6 percent) are the only opponents remaining on the schedule that FPI does NOT favor the Tigers against.
