Oklahoma Soccer, Volleyball, and Softball teams in action this weekend


Bye weeks in the college football season are great for teams. Injured players get to heal up. Coaches get more practice time to implement some new schemes.

For the Sooners, players like Zach Sanchez, Keith Ford, Jordan Phillips, and Sterling Shepard are getting an extra week to get healthy.

Bye weeks are crucial for football teams. For fans though, bye weeks aren’t a lot of fun.

There will be no Sooner football to watch this week, unless you fire up the DVR with the Sugar Bowl (which is highly recommended).

The college football slate of games is fairly weak this Saturday. So I am here to help you out. I’m going to let you know how you can support the crimson and cream and still be entertained.

The lady Sooners will be on the court and field this weekend. The Soccer, Volleyball, and Softball teams will all be in action this weekend in Norman.

The Soccer team will look to finish the non-conference season with a win tonight. The 5-3-2 Sooner squad faces off against Oral Roberts tonight at 7 pm. The Sooners will take John Crain Field looking to bounce back from two recent losses and get back into the top 25.

If soccer isn’t your thing, the OU softball team will be hitting the diamond throughout the weekend. Patty Gasso’s team is hosting the annual Fall Festival at Marita Hynes Field. The Sooners will play tonight at 8 pm against Temple College. On Saturday, the team will play two games, facing Howard College at 12:15 pm and East Central University at 4:45 pm. The team will finish the tournament on Sunday against Seminole State at 1:00 pm.

This is a great opportunity to find out what the softball team will look like this year and see some of the newcomers.

If you are looking to stay indoors and show your Sooner support, McCasland Field House is where you need to be. Saturday, the OU volleyball team will be starting the Big 12 season at 7pm. The No. 23 Kansas Jayhawks will be in town, looking to spoil the Sooners conference opener. Oklahoma is undefeated at home so far this season, but Kansas is talented team that could give the Sooners a fight.

Don’t mope about not getting an Oklahoma football game this Saturday. The team needs the rest. Instead, go out and support one of the other Oklahoma teams in action this weekend!
