Matt Hofield of Crimson and Cream Machine: As Oklahoma and Texas Tech are prepping to play each other Saturday afternoon in Lubbock, Tommy Tuberville knows that he has a lot of things in his favor. Last season his Red Raiders ended Oklahoma’s 39-game home winning streak with a 41-38 shocker in Norman. Texas Tech is undefeated this season and ahead of the Sooners by a game in the Big XII standings. They are playing the Sooners on a field in which Oklahoma hasn’t won since 2003 and they have the nation’s top defense at their disposal. At leas for now though, Tuberville is holding off on that last proclamation. Read More.

Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman: Landry Jones’ on-field production was clearly diminished after Ryan Broyles’ stellar career ended prematurely with four 2011 games remaining. But Jones’ pre- and post-Broyles numbers are even more striking in games following losses. As Sooners preparing for Saturday’s game at Texas Tech — a place no OU team has left a winner since 2003 — Jones is fully aware that all eyes will be fixated on him while Oklahoma tries to bounce back from its Sept. 22 home loss to Kansas State.

Eric Bailey of Tulsa World: Through 2012’s first three games, that has not been the case. After averaging more offensive plays than any other college football program over four seasons, things have seemed to have stalled a bit. The Sooners averaged 80.9 offensive snaps per game last season, which was the most in college football. In 2010, OU averaged a nation-best 86.5 snaps per contest and ran 167 more total plays than the second-most team (Nevada). Through three games this season, Oklahoma is averaging 72.3 offensive snaps an outing. What happened? There’s been a mix of reasons given for a slower-paced attack ranging from the inexperience of first-year players still grasping the system to substitution issues to the way it taxes players.

Seth C. of Viva the Matadors: NewsOK’s Stephanie Kuzydym talked with former Oklahoma Sooner players about how Texas Tech fans were throwing batteries and coins at Oklahoma players during the game. I really don’t have a clue where this image comes from, but whoever did create it, you deserve a huge hat-tip (feel free to email me at doubletnation@gmail.com for credit) as does Ryan Hyatt for tweeting it. But let’s first get to the allegations. There are also allegations about mistreatment in 2009, but we don’t have any sort of video evidence of a fan throwing a hot dog at a coach’s face. Seriously. In any event, enjoy the rebuttal. Read More.
