Where Oklahoma’s Run Defense Can Improve After Baylor Meltdown

After the first three games of the season, it certainly seemed like Oklahoma’s run defense would become one of Brent Venables’ first team in Norman.

The Sooners were a perfect 3-0, and the defensive line was a big part of the side, giving up just 30 points across all three competitions combined. Both Reggie Grimes and Ethan Downs stacked sacks over the edge and the pressure seemed to come from everywhere.

Fast forward two months, and Oklahoma currently has the No. 119 run defense in the country after losing its fourth game of the season to Baylor.
