In other Sooner news, I would like to give a Sooner Birthday shout out to the one and only: Robert Anthony Stoops. AKA Bob. He turns 51. Good to know that Bob will not be popping any blood vessels on his birthday weekend. I kid, Happy Birthday Coach Stoops.
If you want to catch some Big XII conference action this weekend, Missouri takes on Arizona State in a Friday night late kickoff (9:30 CST). The Battle of the CyHawk Trophy between Iowa and Iowa State kicks off at 11:00 AM CST Saturday, Texas takes on BYU in Austin and Kansas takes on Northern Illinois; both at 6:00 PM CST. Oklahoma State played Arizona Thursday night, which resulted in a beatdown of the Wildcats. Pokes QB, Brandon Weeden had amazing numbers and showed his worth in pre-Heisman talks.
Sooner Nation, enjoy the off weekend. Next weekend we will be popping the tums hoping we have gotten over our road game jitters.
