Ditto for the Sooner defense, clearly revitalized in its second season under Mike Stoops. Beating the Irish would be enough, but why think that way? Why not shut them out, too.
It’s all right there.
OU seems like a different team, like a team that might make some old goals relevant again, goals that haven’t been approached since 2008.
Maybe the Sooners are that kind of team this year and maybe they aren’t. But if that’s not clear, this is: one team stands in the way.
