Happy Friday, all.
T-minus 24 hours and counting until the Death Star launches. It isn’t a week the team needed outside motivation, but it has been presented in the form of all Big 12 Conference snubs and a consensus feeling outside the program that OU is going to win.

Just kidding, that is the case.
