During the first month of football, we have seen a lot of good out of the Sooners, so "winners" on the team aren't hard to come by. What about the "losers?" What justifies being a "loser" on an undefeated team?
After getting off to a 4-0 start, the Oklahoma Sooners don't have too much to complain about.
However, despite their unblemished record, the Sooners have seen their ranking move from No. 1 in the AP Poll to No. 3 in the first month.
This should come as no surprise to most fans, as current No. 1 LSU and No. 2 Alabama have definitely proved themselves so far with more impressive victories than any other team in the nation. With LSU and Alabama playing each other early in November, the Sooners have to remember that their chance to move back up is just around the corner.
For now, the Sooners have to keep playing winning football week by week. With the Red River Rivalry coming up this weekend against the undefeated Texas Longhorns, the Sooners have no reason to think ahead farther than their current task.
