GRR: Oklahoma Sooners
The Big XII 7s will kick off Saturday in Norman, Okla., with eight teams vying for a spot in USA Rugby’s College 7s National Championships.
LSU is in an excellent position to win the Red River Conference after beating previously undefeated Oklahoma 43-12 Saturday.
The Tigers broke open a fairly close game just before halftime with a try from prop Christian Brower that, with fullback Alec Miller’s conversion, made it 22-7.
If the University of Oklahoma wants to win the Red River, the Sooners will have to go through LSU this weekend to do it.
OU is 4-0 with the Tigers and Texas left to play, while LSU is 2-0 with Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Baylor coming after Oklahoma this weekend.
Oklahoma is still undefeated in the Red River Conference, but that’s not the real story of the conference’s action this weekend.
