Sooner Scoop

Oklahoma's coaching staff hit the road hard this weekend and saw a number of big performances but head man Lincoln Riley had a chance to watch this week's MVP in person when he saw 2019 quarterback commitment Spencer Rattler dominate. There was plenty of competition for this week's No. 1 spot in Future Sooners including a massive effort from one of two receivers coming off serious injuries.
