Share “Four questions about OU football”

What is left for the Sooners to achieve?

Oklahoma lost its miniscule hopes of a Big 12 title when it left Lincoln with a frustrating "3” illuminated on Nebraska’s Memorial Stadium scoreboard.

Now, it must reshuffle its goals once again.

"Win out and get to a bowl game,” said senior linebacker Ryan Reynolds, whose team still lacks its bowl-qualifying sixth victory. "Just win the remaining games.”

Oklahoma hosts Texas A&M next week before visiting Texas Tech, where the Sooners haven’t won since 2003.

OU closes the regular season Nov. 28 at home against Oklahoma State.

Did Tress Way lose his job as kicker?

Stoops said he considered bringing Jimmy Stevens off the bench Saturday when Way missed two field goals from beyond 40 yards and had another blocked.

A change could come this week. Stevens made 11 of 13 field goals before being benched but had not made a kick from beyond 40 yards. Both misses were from beyond 40. Stevens also missed an extra point in a 64-0 win over Idaho State.

If Stoops lacks confidence in Stevens, he could also look to junior kickoff specialist Matt Moreland, freshman Bryce Easley of Norman North or sophomore Patrick O’Hara.

What happened to the "good” Landry Jones?

Equal parts good defense, inaccuracy, and poor play by the offensive line and receivers.

"They’re not a big blitz team, but they caught us in a couple blitz deals to force him maybe to hurry some throws a few times,” Wilson said.
