Oklahoma Football: What We Learned from the Week 1 Game vs. UTEP
Jim Cowsert-US PRESSWIRE

Well, that was unexpected. After getting off to an incredibly slow start, the Oklahoma Sooners finished off the UTEP Miners in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 of their 24 points. 

It's not every day you'll find a team being scrutinized for a 24-7 victory, but if you watched any of Saturday night's game, you know exactly what I'm talking about. For the most part, the Sooners looked just like the team that finished last season with an Insight Bowl appearance. 

Coming out flat was a big issue for the Sooners last season, and that happened once again. While I can't imagine it being easy to get fired up about playing on the road against a team like UTEP in front of a non-sold out crowd, this was the first game of the season! 

While the negatives surely outweighed the positives, there were a few things that the Sooners (and their fans) can be grateful for—no serious injuries is always a positive, right? 

One thing is certain, though: The Sooners have a long way to go.
