Run Game Report: Oklahoma

In one sense, Texas took Oklahoma pretty seriously in this contest. They didn't really run the base offense that had vaulted them up to a no. 4 ranking in the SP+ offensive ratings and had them looking like the best offense the 40 Acres had seen since 2008 or earlier. Instead, they tried to pick at the obvious Oklahoma weaknesses from unexpected looks and didn't seem to have much confidence in some of the sets that had served them so well in previous weeks.

Scipio Tex: Oklahoma Postmortem – Offense

I laughed when I heard that Tom Herman had Greg Davis in the building last week consulting on the game plan and made the expected jokes, but damned if I didn't see Texas rolling out a classic Longhorn circa 2000-2004 GD game plan on offense this Saturday. 3 points at halftime, 3.5 yards per play, and no ability to game plan pressure defense told the tale. The opposite of deceptive is apparent. We ran apparent offense.

Scipio Tex: Oklahoma Sooners preview

The Sooners routed their first five opponents (UH, South Dakota, UCLA, Texas Tech, Kansas) by an average score of 53-19. Those five teams currently combine for a 10-17 overall record and the only Sooner opponent with a winning record - 3-2 Texas Tech - lost starting QB Alan Bowman the week prior and chose to start a grad transfer from Rice in Norman before hastily inserting Jett Duffey.
