2022 Week 3 Oklahoma Sooners Rankings

Main Poll Voters

User Rank Reason
crownebeach 3 I don't feel good about this, because if you caught that first half, OU was *bad*. But they took care of business in the second half and I am very familiar with the Dillon Gabriel experience: as long as he's not turning the ball over, he will eventually win the ballgame every time.

MWiatrak2077 5 Despite their preseason AP ranking, Oklahoma was a team that many had assumed would be in the depths of a rebuilding year under newfound Head Coach, Brent Venables, - however, two games into the season, and they're as potent as ever. Despite Lincoln Riley ditching the program for USC, and stealing blue-chip talent with him, this Oklahoma team has all the discipline and confidence that we've seen (and haven't seen) in years prior. In today's matchup, despite a weirdly close first-half, Oklahoma handedly defeated a semi-decent Kent State team, 33-3. Dillon Gabriel looked excellent, with a statline of 3 TDs, 0 INTs, 21/28, 296 yards, 10.6 Y/A. Despite the weirdness of the first half, I feel very confident in saying that Brent Venables has improved Oklahoma's defense by a wide margin, holding their first two (albeit, not great) opponents to an average of 8 points per game. To any naysayers, this is the same program that nearly lost to Tulane last year in a 40-35 week one brawl, and allowed 25+ points in 7 of 13 games (including 48 against a 5-7 Texas). I think Oklahoma is still likely one to three years out of real playoff contention, however, I feel confident that Brent Venables is continuing to build upon an elite program. However, on the flip side of things, Oklahoma allowed 312 yards last week against UTEP, and nearly allowed 300+ again, with 295. Historically, bend-don't-break defenses rarely hold up against superior offenses, and they have now lost the ToP game by 74:52 - 44.68, which, again, doesn't bode well against good offenses with strong rushing attacks. But, at the end of the day, they're 2-0, 7th in offensive points per drive, and allowing a meager 8 points per game, and have shown an excelling passing attack, - all to likely their best start since 2017. I am confident that the Sooner will be in deep contention for the Big-12 title this season.

ShamusJohnson13 5 That first half was certainly a first half. Y'all are lucky you found out what made you click in this game, I was very tempted to drop y'all for that performance. Luckily it was against Kent State, but if y'all do it again against a Big 12 school you're screwed.

bretticus33 6 OU started off really slow but came to life in the 2nd half and won easily. Most encouraging sign is how well the defense has played, even though the level of competition hasn't been strong. They should take care of Nebraska but wouldn't be surprised to see them in another close one with the Huskers.

Our-Gardian-Angel 6 Leading a MAC team 7-3 at halftime obviously isn't great, but Kent State is a MAC title contender and having merely a poor half isn't too bad for September 10, 2022. (Week 2: Oklahoma 33, Kent State 3; Record: 2-0)

nw____ 7 Meh performance overall, which is what you get after an awful half followed by an above average half. Offense has to figure some things out, especially up front, where they've been pretty bad. Defensive line still doesn't look good enough to get the team where they want to go but they should continue to improve (and are already miles ahead of where they were).

Due_Connection179 17 Back-to-Back "I just don't believe in you" teams. They lost a lot this off-season and they don't really have a "prove it" game until they play Texas on October 8th. I'm going to be very conservated with this team until then. Also, this is my upset pick this week at Nebraska.
