The Sooners still have one more practice this week before the lid shuts on the spring. Then it’s two months of offseason workouts until preseason practice begins in August.
OU coach Bob Stoops didn’t have any complaints and was quick to remind those interested that OU lacked its full assortment of offensive weapons.
“They played with a little bit of a tougher hand but that is good. You get a chance to see them stretched out in some tough situations,” he said, “but I thought overall that they did a nice job.”

Heupel isn’t in a hurry for it to end.
“When somebody has earned it, we’ll name a guy,” he said.
It didn’t happen Saturday.
