I'm putting together our opponent boxes for the Tuesday paper. Meanwhile, here's a portion of it that gives a quick peak at the Sooners:
Oklahoma's 514 victories since World War II are the most in college football.
Oklahoma opened this season ranked No. 10 nationally. Tailback Adrian Peterson and linebacker Rufus Alexander were media picks as the Big 12 Conference's preseason offensive and defensive players of the year.
Peterson is 946 yards from Billy Sims' OU career rushing mark of 4,114 yards.
Never miss a local story.
The Sooners roster has just 11 seniors, the lowest number in Stoops' coaching tenure. However, 24 players have starting experience.
Paul Thompson was Oklahoma's opening day starter at quarterback last season, but was shifted to receiver after a disastrous debut. He regained the starting quarterback job this season after No. 1 quarterback Rhett Bomar was dismissed from the team after an investigation revealed he received payment in excess of time worked at a car dealership.
The Sooners have been among the nation's top 20 in total defense in each of Stoops' seven seasons.
A sellout crowd is expected in excess of the stadium's listed capacity of 82,112.
