Oklahoma Sooners offensive line looking to regain dominant form

It was just one game with this current offensive line unit, but it was impressive. Tyler Guyton, McKade Mettauer, Andrew Raym, Savion Byrd and Walter Rouse put on a dominant display up front.

They played mean and physical, and while the offensive lines have been good almost every year under Bill Bedenbaugh, they looked like the 2017 and 2018 offensive lines.

That doesn’t mean they are going to be that dominant or win the Joe Moore Award, but the aggression and physicality they played with were very reminiscent.

Andrew Raym told reporters, that the work isn’t done. They have to build off of that performance.

The big focus is details,” Raym said. “I saw an o-line that was finishing. They were trying to get after people’s butts. We have a group of guys who just want to dominate this year. We just got to keep working on the small things, the details and all of that.”

It’s felt like that “dominate” mentality just hasn’t been there in the past few years. But if Saturday is any indicator, it’s back.

The Sooners were dominant in both the run and pass game, accumulating more than 640 yards of total offense. There also weren’t as many penalties as we’ve seen in years past. Especially the sloppy and untimely penalties that plagued this team a year ago.

Again it’s just Week 1, so this offensive line still has a ways to go, but it was a great start to the season.
