2016 Oklahoma Season Preview
The Oklahoma Sooners entered the 2014 season brimming with confidence after the apparent emergence of quarterback Trevor Knight in the 2nd half of 2013. But the Sooners struggled in close games, losing to Tennessee, Kansas State, and Oklahoma State by a combined 8 points, leaving a sour note on what could have been a decent season for Ou. The 2015 Oklahoma Sooners will look to return to prominence in the Big 12, and will likely turn to transfer quarterback Baker Mayfield to take over behind center. Mayfield will have plenty of help in the backfield with Samaje Perine, and Alex Ross combining to be one of the best running back duo in the Big 12. The key for Oklahoma in 2015 will be taking care of the ball, if Mayfield and company can hold on to the ball, they could challenge Baylor and TCU for the Big 12 crown. Top games on the Oklahoma Sooners 2015 schedule include on the road against a revamped Tennessee squad, at the Cotton Bowl against Texas, and at home against TCU.

Oklahoma vs. Texas
One of the biggest games in all of college football, the Red River Rivalry is played in Dallas at the Cotton Bowl between two of the most storied programs in history. The Longhorn and Sooner faithful are split right down the middle of the stadium as they are surrounded by the State Fair of Texas on all sides of the stadium. It’s a can’t-miss for fans of either team and it’s the most unique setting for a football game in the country.
The Bedlam Series is one that is heavily won by the Sooners, but the recent emergence of Oklahoma State on a national level could change that in the future. The distance between Stillwater and Normal is small, on opposite sides of Oklahoma City, but the culture seems to be miles apart. Oklahoma has winning streaks of 15 and 19 and a more recent one of 8 straight from 2003-2010.
Although the rivalry between the Oklahoma Sooners and West Virginia Mountaineers is young, it has already seen some great moments. The two teams first played in 1958, but the rivalry was born in 2008 when the Sooners and Mountaineers met in the Fiesta Bowl. West Virginia blew out the Sooners, building animosity between the two programs. In 2012, the Mountaineers joined the Big 12, making this rivalry and annual series. Since then, the games between Ou and West Virginia have been incredibly tight and full of fantastic moments.
