With the season opener against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs only days away, it’s finally time to see whether or not the Oklahoma Sooners are deserving of all the preseason hype.
The pressure will certainly be on the boys from Norman, as they are ranked in the Top Five in both major polls. However, backed by an impressive Sugar Bowl victory over Alabama in January, along with a stellar finish to the 2013 recruiting class, the Sooners have a lot to be confident about heading into 2014.
