Why Getting to a Bowl Game, by Beating Oklahoma State First, is Now ‘a Big Deal’ for Oklahoma

NORMAN — Oklahoma fans don’t want to hear about their team going to a minor bowl game.

But going to a bowl — any bowl — beats not going to one.

That’s where Oklahoma finds itself 10 games into the 2022 season: mired in the muck of a 5-5 season, with big games left against Oklahoma State this wee and Texas Tech next week. Win one, and the Sooners become bowl eligible with six wins. Win them both, and a 7-5 season — with the prospect of an 8-win season with a victory in the bowl game — is possible.

And that’s it. After 2 1/2 months of football, that’s the ceiling for Brent Venables’ first team.
