By Allen Kenney, 1 year 1 month ago
The first half of the 2015 season for the Oklahoma Sooners saw the Air Raid offense return to Norman.

Aka, a losing weekend. I did get two of my three Letdown Alert picks correct but that struggling Florida State offense ruined me for the weekend. I'm not shying away from the big games this weekend (except one) and am feeling like going big or going home. We’ve also now entered the “win one for the Gipper... because...
