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.

Describing the Oklahoma opponent slate as toothless is satisfying on many levels.

Lincoln Riley is 29-4 at Oklahoma. A record that includes two Big 12 titles, two college football playoff berths, a lot of offensive records, and a pair of Heisman winning transfer QBs. You may have noticed he’s pretty good at scheming up offense.
