Will that include beating Oklahoma in Norman?

We’re in a bit of a rush here at BotC World Headquarters, as an appointment to pick up a rental car awaits. Your benevolent despot will be joining KSUEMAW! and Purple Brunette in Norman tomorrow, and we’re certainly hoping the result will be the same as it’s been this entire decade.

So, straight to the news, of which there is a bunch.

Football

To get you started, TB kicks the tires for you this morning as per usual, and the bossman visited Crimson & Cream Machine for a Q&A yesterday.

ESPN’s Mitch Sherman takes the opportunity to say the same stuff everyone always says about Bill Snyder. Meanwhile, Chip Rouse at Fansided’s Stormin’ in Norman selects the five biggest Stoops-vs-Snyder collisions. His pick for number one may surprise you, but it won’t disappoint you.

Kellis Robinett profiles D.J. Reed, and also provides his three-minute preview. That’s not all, though; he also provides the perfect segue into our next paragraph by answering some questions from the Tulsa World’s Cody Stavenhagen.

That’s not the only content from the Tulsa paper today. Stavenhagen isolates the three Wildcats to watch tomorrow, while Eric Bailey outlines the three things the Sooners need in order to win — which, of course, means the three things the Wildcats need to overturn.

At the Norman Transcript, John Shinn points out that the result of the OU-KSU game usually serves as an indication of how Oklahoma’s season is going to play out. That’s actually pretty high praise for the program, even if Oklahoma fans won’t acknowledge it.

Jim Ross at FOX also pinpoints important things for Oklahoma tomorrow, and our pal Allen Kenney of Blatant Homerism previews the game for Athlon.

Volleyball

The football team isn’t the only bunch of purple people invading Norman on Saturday. The Volleycats (14-5, 3-3) take on the Sooners (12-7, 3-3) at 6pm at McCasland Field House. If you’re going to the football game, here’s a tip: admission to the volleyball game is free, so stick around and make McCasland more purple than it ought to be.

Tennis

All six participating Wildcats grabbed first-round wins at the ITA Regional Championships in Minneapolis yesterday. They all advance to today’s round of 64, and will also all pair up for doubles matches today.

Cross Country

The Wildcat harriers will make their seemingly annual pilgrimage to Peoria today for the Bradley Pink Classic. It’s the final event before the Big 12 championships.
