Were Sooners Mentally Prepared for Wildcats?
Were the Sooner's mentally prepared to go on the road and face Kansas St? Coach Lincoln Riley said if they weren't, it was his fault. When you go on the road you are going to get the other teams best shot and you had better be ready, in this instance against the Wildcats OU wasn't ready to handle the Ks St's fronts, both the Offensive line and Defensive line had trouble with their counterparts physicality. Plus, on the road there are lots of ups and downs you have to overcome and OU, was [in the end] not able to overcome the ups and downs in Manhattan.
