Sooners have a chance to top Aggies, but will they really win?


NORMAN, Okla. —

“I know our team understands the quality, what great people are operating the Cotton Bowl, what a great game it is,” Stoops said, doing his best to shill for the game, as though the pedigree of the organizers is what it’s all about.

But don’t let a silly quote like that get in the way of the truth. This is a good game. A really good game. It is a top-10 opponent that beat a No. 1 opponent. It will probably be the best attended bowl game this year, and but for national championship games in OU’s recent past, it will feel as big or bigger as the rest.

Can the Sooners win?

Sure they can. As long as they, you know, win.
