Oklahoma making more than it missed from the field in Wednesday 92-66 victory over Oral Roberts wasn

t a surprise. It was the fourth time in eight games the Sooners have done that. What OU did at the free-throw line was the revelation. It went 15 for 16. The 93.8 conversion percentage was by far and away a season.

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma City Thunder are 22 games into their season, which means one thing: It’s too late to write quarter-season awards. At 14-8, the Thunder sit in a race with the Houston Rockets, Utah Jazz, Memphis Grizzlies and more for the Western Conference's No. 4 playoff seed. The Rockets visit Friday. Before they do, it's a good time to unveil The Slightly Late Quarter-Season Awards.

Allow me to preface the rest of this column by saying that I understand that Bedlam was not the end of the world. Mike Gundy will probably go down as one of the all-time greatest football coaches at Oklahoma State University, and I don’t want him gone.

Baker Mayfield knows how to build drama. After leading Oklahoma to a 38-20 victory over Oklahoma State, he gave rapid-fire responses to questions about the second straight Big 12 Conference title, Fu Manchu mustache and undershirt he wore predicting a victory on Saturday.

m coming back here for another year,

he said.

There were All-Americans and future NFL stars all over the field in that game. The 2016 version replicates the talent level. Here are the Sooners that need big games to secure another conference title.
