They did not bother to review this. It sure looks good from this angle https://t.co/1cSD0OvNQf— Stormin In Norman (@StorminInNorman) November 27, 2022

An unprecedented year of parity and general craziness in the Big 12. https://t.co/dLsHJXLgdo
Brent Venables just can't get a break. His calling-card defense just gave up 48 at Texas Tech - 48-all heading to OT. But Venables called time as the Sooners blocked the tying field goal. 2nd time, Tech kicker made it. Nightmare.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) November 27, 2022
To summarize— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) November 27, 2022
Caleb Williams is on the verge of winning a Heisman.
Lincoln Riley is on the verge of reaching the CFP.
Spencer Rattler beat Tennessee and Clemson in consecutive weeks and South Carolina finished 8-4.
Oklahoma just lost in OT to Texas Tech to finish 6-6.
Dillon Gabriel played his best game as a Sooner, while the offense put up 48 and 670 total yards. He and Jeff Lebby being scapegoats tonight is, respectfully, incredibly dumb.— Jalen Ross (@_JalenRoss) November 27, 2022
