Oklahoma football: Bob Stoops, ice cream man

by Ryan Aber and Jason Kersey Published: August 15, 2014

Sophomore Keith Ford and redshirt freshman Alex Ross are the only two running backs with any college football game experience, although it is very limited.

True freshman Samaje Perine is also in the mix. Five-star signee Joe Mixon was expected to compete for the job, but hasn’t practiced with the team while he faces a misdemeanor charge stemming from a late-night altercation with a female OU student in late July.


Fox Sports Oklahoma announced the participating cable and satellite broadcasters that will carry the pay-per-view broadcast of Oklahoma's season opener against Louisiana Tech on Aug. 30. In Oklahoma City, Cox Communications will carry the game on channels 610 and 611

The game wasn't selected for broadcast otherwise that weekend.

Ron Thulin, Dave Lapham and Chad McKee will call the game, with the broadcast beginning at 5 p.m. for the 6 p.m. kickoff. After the game, the broadcast will feature postgame analysis and live broadcasts of the postgame press conferences.

The pay-per-view will be available on cable primarily in Oklahoma, Louisiana, Texas and Arkansas.

Viewers outside Oklahoma can purchase a live stream of the broadcast on for $54.99 or can purchase a package that also includes an annual subscription for $109.99. The purchased stream can be viewed on iPhone, iPad and Android devices with the use of the SoonerSports2Go app.

Cable customers can order the broadcast from their set-top devices or by calling their cable provider.


Freshman fullback Dimitri Flowers, on what surprised him during two-a-days: “I wasn’t ready for how hot it was going to be, honestly. It was rough. … In high school, our two-a-days would be in shorts and a shirt and then in pads. … It’s different. It’s a grind.”
