Social media reactions to Sooners big first half

The Oklahoma Sooners got off to a hot start on the first drive of the game and didn’t let up. They scored 35 points in the first half for the second time this season, more points than in any other game in the last three weeks.

With the return of Dillon Gabriel from concussion protocol, the Oklahoma Sooners offense is on the rise, amassed more than 400 points in the first half and converted 7 of 9 third-downs. Gabriel is 21 of 29 for 304 yards and a touchdown and hitting big throws across the field.

The rushing attack was phenomenal in the first half. Eric Gray led with 10 carries for 124 yards and three touchdowns. Jovantae Barnes opened the scoring and has seven carries for 24 yards and two touchdowns.

After conceding 14 points in the first quarter, the Sooners’ defense strengthened and went on a run in which they forced three punts and the incredible CJ Coldon interception for four consecutive stops from the last two minutes of the first through about the fifth minute got mark of the second quarter.

Oklahoma got the ball back 1:36 to play in the first half and Brent Venables slowed that last drive, giving them little time to work with it as they tried to score in the end.

Oklahoma has 487 total yards of offense and rolls at 8.9 yards per game. If the defense can keep getting stops like they did, the Sooners have a good chance of winning this one and getting back above .500 in the season.
