Riding high from Bedlam win, Sooners still have unfinished business



Perhaps, the Sooners pick right up where they left off. OU coach Bob Stoops has raved about this team’s business-like approach all season. It’s handled the weekly challenge all season. OU has lost twice, but it wasn’t because it was flat in either game. It still put in the work during the week in those losses to Wildcats and Fighting Irish. OU must do it one more time this season. What happens against TCU has massive implications.

Stoops doesn’t see an issue.

“I don’t know why it would,” he said. “In the end, there’s nothing to bounce back from. Everything’s in front of us. We’ve got a big game, an opportunity to ... with championship implications. All of that in front of you, so if anything, I would think it’d give you some momentum.”

Still, anyone looking for a scenario to wrap-up the regular season would be hard pressed to find a better one than the victory over the Cowboys.

“Yeah, that’s true. It’s one of those things you want to live in the moment, but you’ve also got to know the season’s not over with,” Walker said. “We’re in line for a Big 12 title and a BCS bowl game. That’s one of the goals you set at the beginning of the year. So you have to forget about it.
