Why Getting to the Bowl Game, by Beating Oklahoma State First, Is Now a ‘Big Deal’ for Oklahoma

Norman – Oklahoma fans don’t want to hear about their team going to a mini bowl game.

But going to a bowl – any bowl – one won’t hit him.

This is where Oklahoma finds itself 10 games into the 2022 season: mired in the brunt of a 5-5 season, with big games still to come against Oklahoma State this week and Texas Tech next week. Win one contest and quickly become a bowl qualifier with six wins. Win both, and a 7-5 season — with the potential for an 8-win season with a bowl game win — is possible.

And that’s it. After two and a half months of football, that’s the limit for Brent Venables’ first team.
