The Sooners dominated Bedlam, and to try this, tons should go proper and much did Saturday evening. The grades mirror a largely stellar efficiency by OU in a 41-13 victory over OSU.
Ronnie Perkins: A
The Sooner defensive finish appeared like a person on a mission. He was disruptive. He was dominating. On the OU protection’s first snap, Perkins obtained into the backfield and compelled OSU quarterback Spencer Sanders into an intentional grounding penalty. It put the Cowboys in a gap that they didn’t get well from and allowed the Sooners to construct on the momentum they already had. OSU punted, OU scored rapidly, and the Sooners scored once more. Perkins completed the primary half with 4 tackles, together with two sacks and three tackles for loss. He added just one deal with within the second half, however when the Sooners have been placing the Cowboys at arm’s size, Perkins was a giant cause why. He was the very best participant on the sector Saturday evening.
Offensive variations: A
No shock with Lincoln Riley on the helm, however the wrinkles he put within the offense for Bedlam have been stellar. On the Sooners’ first landing, for instance, quarterback Spencer Rattler faked a handoff to T.J. Pledger with the entire Sooner line pulling proper. Rattler ran left, and with open area in entrance of him, he solely needed to make one Cowboy defender miss to get into the tip zone. Riley additionally put Mikey Henderson within the backfield a couple of occasions, handing it to the halfback as soon as, throwing it to him one other day out of that look. Riley additionally had receivers in movement nearly always, together with at the very least one play the place Drake Stoops went throughout the sector, then doubled again all the way in which again to the opposite aspect of the sector behind the Sooner backfield. The Sooners saved their finest variation for the landing that put the nail within the Cowboys’ coffin — a bit trickery on a fourth-quarter landing. The snap went to Rhamondre Stevenson, who handed off to Rattler who faked a hand off to Marvin Mims for a reverse. As an alternative, Rattler stored the ball and hit a wide-open Jeremiah Corridor for the landing.
Defensive penalties: D
Woof. The Sooner protection dominated, however it gave the Cowboys hope due to all of the penalties. OU had seven penalties for 87 yards, and all of them have been dedicated by the protection. Worse, all resulted in OSU first downs. And if that wasn’t dangerous sufficient, a number of of them have been fully pointless. Brendan Radley-Hiles obtained whistled for an unsportsmanlike penalty when he taunted Cowboy receiver Dillon Stoner on the finish of a 3rd down play. If not for Radley-Hiles’ taunt, OSU would’ve confronted a protracted fourth down. As an alternative, the drive stayed alive, and the Cowboys scored a landing the subsequent play. There was additionally a push of Chuba Hubbard when he was out of bounds and a depraved facemask seize on Hubbard by Perkins. Don’t do this stuff, and the rout may’ve been even greater even sooner.
