OU Game Schedule and Upcoming Games Highlighted
Whether you’re a fan of the Sooners’ WCWS championship, 6-0 record, or OU’s schedule in the Big 12, OU’s upcoming games will be highlighted in this article. We’ll discuss the latest news surrounding the Sooners, including the OU win over Florida State and the WCWS title. Or you’re just curious about what to expect this season from the Sooners. Whatever your reasons, check out these articles to learn more about what’s ahead for OU in the Big 12.
OU’s 6-0 record
The Sooners’ 6-0 record is a reflection of the team’s play so far this season. The Sooners have outscored their opponents by a combined score of 74-16 in the second quarter. While the Sooners’ offense has been inconsistent throughout the season, it is clear that the Sooners’ defense has been a consistent force. The Sooners have forced five turnovers and forced one extra point in each game.
The Oklahoma Sooners have hit the ball well – Jocelyn Alo hit a three-run homer in an 11-run victory over Texas Tech on Sunday. Alo had never hit more than two home runs in a game before, but she broke her own Division I record on Sunday with three homers in the opener. In the fourth inning, she hit a two-run home run. The seventh inning she added two more home runs.
The Crimson and Cream were considered the best team in school history when entering the Big 12 Championship Game against Kansas State. Heisman Trophy winner Jason White led the Crimson and Cream to a 12-0 start. However, the Sooners fell short against Kansas State and to LSU in the Sugar Bowl, meaning their 8-0 Big 12 record was in vain. If you are wondering what the best offense was in a Stoops era, look no further than a year ago.
In addition to winning five of its six games, the Sooners have won nine of their last 10 contests. Their 6-0 record is the most recent in the history of the Big 12 conference, and it is tied for the longest in the nation. The last time OU lost in the Big 12 Conference, it was against Iowa State. OU is now chasing a sixth national title, and their fourth in the last six stages.
OU’s win over Florida State
The Sooners were down early, but they fought back in the third inning to come out with a 3-0 win over Florida State. The Seminoles struck first with a two-run home run by Jacquelyn Harding and held a 2-0 lead after one inning. Then, Jana Johns hit a solo home run to left field to cut the lead to 2-0.
The Sooners fought back, though. After Florida State’s start, the Sooners couldn’t match up with their starters. The Sooners’ starting pitcher struggled to get their offense going. It took three hits from the starting pitcher before the Sooners could answer. This was the difference between OU and FSU. Florida State has a strong offense, but Oklahoma’s starting pitcher struggled to ignite it.
The Seminoles have a lot to prove. The Seminoles are a very good defensive team. Florida State only has one player in the lineup who averages over a batting average of a ten. That means a big night for the Seminoles’ defense. The Seminoles must contain the OU hitters to win. They must also prevent errors from being committed to beat a team like Florida State. If the Seminoles can do all that, they will be crowned the National Champions.
The Seminoles are 49-13-1, so a victory over the Sooners will help them get to the national championship game. Unlike the Oklahoma Sooners, Florida State has never lost consecutive games. They have won four of their last five opponents. Neither team has ever lost a game in the WCWS. Moreover, the Seminoles have won their elimination game in five straight years. However, UCLA won four straight in 2003 and two more in 2006.
OU’s WCWS title
The seniors who led OU to its third WCWS title have had an incredible four years. The Sooners have won six Big 12 titles and have been to the championship game three times. Once, the Sooners won, and once, they were crowned champions. Senior pitcher Paige Parker said reaching Oklahoma City is something she dreams of every day. In the last four years, the Sooners have outscored their opponents 222-to-29. Their win percentage is.884, the best in the country.
OU matched or broke the WCWS single-game record with a whopping 64 runs. Jocelyn Alo matched her career high with two home runs in Game 1 and has now hit 20 in her career. Tiare Jennings’ 15 RBIs also tied the WCWS record. Overall, the Sooners were dominant throughout the entire season, outscoring their opponents 579-65 in the regular season.
The Longhorns were unranked in Game 2 of the Women’s College World Series, but the Sooners dominated Texas 10-5. The Sooners won the championship series for the fifth time in nine seasons. Earlier this year, OU had to play Texas in the finals of the Big 12 tournament, but their defense held them at bay. OU was able to keep Texas scoreless until the offense finally got rolling.
The Oklahoma Sooners have played in the Women’s College World Series for the past three seasons and have a great chance to defend their title. Texas, which has never been to the WCWS finals, will be playing for the first time because COVID-19 has caused the postseason to be canceled. The Sooners are the modern college softball dynasty, and are favored to win their third title this year.
OU’s schedule in the Big 12
Oklahoma’s schedule in the Big12 is set to be announced by the conference in October. OU is expected to play Texas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, BYU, Houston, Cincinnati, and UCF. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby believes that a nine-game conference schedule is the most likely. The other eight teams in the conference are Houston, Texas, Oklahoma State, Kansas, TCU, and West Virginia.
Oklahoma will play nine other Big12 teams, including Texas, Kansas State, and TCU, in 2022. The non-conference schedule features OU playing TCU and Kansas State on Sept. 24 and Sept. 1. During the conference schedule, OU plays Texas in the Cotton Bowl on Oct. 8 and Kansas on Oct. 15 in Norman. Oklahoma also plays Iowa State in Ames on Oct. 27. During the regular season, OU will face Texas, Kansas, and Oklahoma State.
The conference’s structure has changed since the Big Eight was formed. The Big 12 began athletic play in 1996 with the Texas Tech vs. Kansas State football game. The conference’s members were initially 12 until 2011, when six of the former Big Eight teams joined. After that, the Big 12 expanded to 14 teams. As a result, the Big 12 split its schedule into two divisions, with the South Division comprised of teams from Texas and Oklahoma, while the North Division consisted of six teams from the former Big Eight.
One of the most important games on OU’s schedule in the Big-12 is against the Cornhuskers in Lincoln, NE. Although they lost 23-16 to OU last season, the home crowd is sure to be fired up for this rivalry. The Cowboys only have one power-five opponent, Arizona State. This game should put them at 3-0 after two weeks of play. So what will OU do during the Big 12 season?
OU’s upcoming game against James Madison
OU’s upcoming doubleheader against James Madison will be crucial for the Sooners’ postseason hopes. The team has knocked out No. 8 Missouri and No. 9 Tennessee to reach the postseason. The win gives OU a boost after the opening day loss to the Dukes. OU’s sophomore pitcher Odicci Alexander has pitched dynamite in the postseason, striking out 48 batters in five appearances. Head coach Lori LaPorte is in her ninth season with the program and fourth year as head coach.
In this Women’s College World Series, No. 1 Oklahoma will play a team that has never lost a game to them in their history. The Dukes are a Cinderella story and will be a tough test for the Sooners to beat. They have already battled the Georgia Bulldogs and UCLA Bruins in their season-opening game. With a win over OU, they will be one game closer to advancing to the championship series.
The NCAA has made two major changes in the schedule for the upcoming NCAA Women’s College World Series. After the Alabama-Florida game hit a two-hour rain delay, the NCAA made both games “if necessary” for both teams. The OU-James Madison game was rescheduled for 3pm CT on Monday, while the Florida State-Alabama game has been rescheduled for 6pm.
After the opening game, Oklahoma defeated James Madison 6-3. The Sooners scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning and held the Bluejays scoreless in the bottom of the inning. Afterward, OU and James Madison will play the decisive game on Monday, and the winner will advance to the championship. And that’s not all. The team is still in the hunt for their fifth national championship, but their chances are still slim.
