In preparation for next week's game in Stillwater, Oklahoma started installing its game plan for Oklahoma State earlier this week instead of waiting for Monday.
“We're doing it just like a normal week,” Sooners co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell said. “We're going our daily preparation just like a normal game week if we were playing this weekend. We're trying to get a majority of it done and we'll tweak it next week. We really want to stay on pace like a normal week.”
The Sooners practiced Monday through Wednesday before players were released to go home for the Thanksgiving weekend.
The team will reconvene Sunday night.
SAUNDERS FINISHING STRONG
The college career of Sooners wide receiver Jalen Saunders has just two games left, the Bedlam game next Saturday and the bowl game.
Both Saunders and the Sooners' coaches are trying to take full advantage of the time they have left.
“He sees the end coming and he is really dialed in to how he can help this team,” Norvell said. “We're moving him around a little bit more and putting him in different spots. Sometimes, when you are a college football coach, you see the end coming and you want to get as much out of them as you can. He's a really good player and he's really tough for a little guy. We're just trying to use him up here in the last few weeks.”
