The highlights from Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley’s Monday press conference.
Lincoln Riley did not mince words when asked how Saturday night and Sunday went following his first career loss as a head coach, “It sucked.” Those two words pretty well summed up Saturday’s 38-31 home loss to Iowa State. The Oklahoma Sooners have no time to lay around licking their wounds as they prepare to take on the Texas Longhorns in the 2017 edition of the Red River Shootout.
The Longhorns look much improved from previous years, and their 2-0 start in Big 12 play has been matched only by TCU. Texas head coach Tom Herman has not named a starter for Saturday yet, but every indication seems to point to true freshman Sam Ehlinger getting the nod at quarterback. That would mean that both starting quarterbacks in this game would be Austin natives, but Baker Mayfield was quick to point out one key difference in their respective high school careers.
