Wow! This was a close one.


dinklberg1990

SEC SEC SEC


Clash-the-Corrupted

I reaaally hope that like, 40% of the OU team was out binge drinking last night and were severely hung over today. If this was their best otherwise, it's going to be a long season.


Botto71

That happens a lot when teams come to play in NOLA....


Clash-the-Corrupted

I don’t recall 2004 very well thank you 🍻


NCAA__Illuminati

How the hell were they ranked above Clemson, OSU, and UGA? All three would have kicked the living shit out of OU.


iameveryoneelse

Because suck it, that's why. (But seriously. I'm scared.)


OkieJayBee

Well at least we didn’t lose (on the scoreboard).


BobbyLite94

Just be happy y’all never lost to Troy


LSU2007

Best thing that happened to LSU


Gtamerboy

Tulane should be rank top 25


BobbyLite94

That guy at QB… what an absolute stud. He could start on most SEC rosters in my opinion. Man actually I wish he was LSUs QB right now


cautionmaybecomehot

Bud, we got Zeb Noland and an FCS all American as our QBs right now. I’ll NIL the dude myself if he became a gamecock


MooseBurgers511

Zeb looked like Jake Bentley and JB threw at least 3 Tebow jump passes Carolina football is so back


longbowfosho

Hell he almost beat an SEC team today!


jawilder44

Max Johnson pretty good! But yes, he looked great!


space_llama_karma

We don't deserve the number 2 ranking now. I hope Tulane has a great season.


SanaMinatozaki9

You won’t have it next week.


space_llama_karma

It's so typical of OU to start slow, and lose/almost lose games we should dominate at the beginning of the season


SanaMinatozaki9

I know. Got a friend there so I actually cheer for y’all during the games even though I’m a born Longhorn.


space_llama_karma

I feel you, I always root for Texas until we play each other


SanaMinatozaki9

We want a top-10 RRR Love your name btw


space_llama_karma

Lol thanks! Yeah top 10 match up for RRR is peak football


GingerMessiah88

“They spose to be SEC”


clairelise327

Any other Tulane fans going to Oxford for the ole miss game? This is exciting


Captain_Nebula

Though I am not really a Tulane fan, I may actually go to that game. I really like watching this Tulane team and Oxford is one of my favorite towns to visit. Great combination.


jawilder44

I’ll be there! I like both teams equally. Gonna be a good game!


clairelise327

Can’t wait!


Snathious

Ref’s unabashedly bailed Spencer Rattler out early in the fourth quarter from throwing what would have been his third interception by calling the worst “defensive pass interference” call EVER. The OU receiver pushed his defender down as the Tulane safety came in and picked off the horrible pass. I was in disbelief. Hopefully OU drops to 5th or 6th after this weekend, how a team with no defense and an overrated offense can be ranked above A&M, Clemson, or OSU blows me away.


lawschoollorax

Hey we are supposed to be friends now.


SanaMinatozaki9

Frenemies.


dizdawgjr34

8th or 9th.


TheUkraineTrain

A&M? Haha


BobbyLite94

Saints rams is the worst ever but this one is right up there with it


Snathious

I was rooting for Tulane man, Pratt looked more like the Heisman favorite in this game.


Spaticles

Technically his 4th pick-worthy pass, if you'll remember the earlier one that was in the defender's hands.


LeoFireGod

Rattler reminds me a TON of college Mahomes all the arm talent in the world but no discipline. Mahomes also had trash footwork in college, NFL Mahomes is a God, I’m just talking about college Mahomes. rattler is similar. If rattler set his feet he would be elite but he just keeps throwing the ball off 1 foot or his back foot and it just doesn’t work in the college game. Hopefully he figures it out or we are on our way to another 4th place disappointment


Spaticles

He's still got time


Snathious

You’re right, the pass that Rattler overthrew his receiver on for no reason, Ratter is no Murray or Mayfield.


ChurnedClown

I was rooting for Tulane so hard. It was so close. I’m mad proud of them for this performance. I just wish they could’ve done a little bit more. Excited to see how they play the rest of this year.


Nuke_Dukum

They were most definitely the better team today aside from the second quarter.


ChurnedClown

Agreed. That second quarter was a blowout.


BoyznGirlznBabes

Helluva Hullaballoo of a game! ROLL WAVE! Now to watch my other oceanographic phenomenon


makashiII_93

OU deserves all the jokes. After the SEC bullshit and conspiring for OVER A YEAR to destroy CFB as we know and love it, they come out and play like this. Drop them to like 10. They ain’t winning a title this year. This happens with Riley every year, and eventually they’ll lose a game they shouldn’t lose. Just like they do with Riley. Every year.


butter_cow

tbf that's just an us thing not a riley thing lol. hell only losing one gimme game a year has been an improvement


SanaMinatozaki9

Sounds like a certain turtle coach I know and hate


Snathious

And Tulane gave up those two early fumbles, and OU could never put them away. What a sham of a team this year.


therealsanchopanza

Show me on the doll where Riley hurt you


clairelise327

As a Tulane fan, great day for me. Early today I told people I would be proud of a 25 point loss


Nuke_Dukum

Tulane played a hell of a game on both sides of the ball. Your QB has star potential. He kept getting shellacked and kept his poise. He was impressive


NolaBrass

I wrote on my sports law final last year that the Michael Pratt effect is going to take New Orleans by storm. Might’ve been a bit on the nose there 😅


jawilder44

Tulane gonna have a great season. I’m excited to watch them.


hobosockmonkey

Sheesh Oklahoma, that was bad


Nuke_Dukum

**** hypnotizing **** You saw nothing. We’re definitely worthy of number 2. **** end hypnosis ****


dizdawgjr34

Mind tricks don't work on me. Only money.


hobosockmonkey

Sorry I mean, Oklahoma is the number 2 team in the nation


Nuke_Dukum

Huzzah it worked!


big-daddio

Normally when you see huge upsets or near upsets the underdog gets all the breaks and forces more turnovers. Tulane lost the turnover battle, had bad breaks (looking at you back judge), and the other kicker made 3 50+ yard field goals. If you didn't know who was supposed to be the better team hard to tell with just the eye test. I have not live in NO for 25 years but grew up a Tulane fan. Hope this translates rest of the season.


CA_Dweller

Can you imagine if this game had been AT Tulane. Win for sure with the wild crowd


BoyznGirlznBabes

I was there when went undefeated that one time. It would be NUTS.


reddit_names

OU is not actually the second best team in the nation.


Arsenalxp9

nope no idea why they were given it


agDane

They were the second best team in this game


Nuke_Dukum

Ouch. Stop telling the truth.


Egospartan_

Thanks Oklahoma for not being able to play defense causing me to miss the first part of the Alabama game in there first score. Your invitation to the SEC is withdrawn


ThatLineOfTriplets

Honestly with the conclusions everyone seems to draw after a game like this it makes me question if people actually pay attention to college football every year. Teams slip up or almost get upset all the time that go on to win national championships. OU could very well end up a top 2 team this season just as they’re ranked


jawilder44

Bama already up 7-0 lmfao


dizdawgjr34

Disappointing, its not 50-0 at the end of the first quarter.


Pen-cap

Let’s offer Saban 25 mill a year plus the panhandle


Spaticles

I'll say it again, Heisman candidate, yo


streikensiehart

So #4 after this? At best?


undercover200342

Shouldn’t be top 5.


streikensiehart

I don’t even disagree with that. That was a pitiful performance on our part


cabbagehead112

Oklahoma expects to survive playing like this? in the SEC...hahahahaha


Dpope32

As an OU fan, I for one hated this move to the SEC. While we traditionally play decent against SEC teams (9-5 last 12 years), I feel our team would constantly be throttled by Alabama and whoever the #2/3 teams are that year. Good move on paper, horrible in practice.


mattyslappypants

We beat the #2 SEC team by 35 just last year


Dpope32

I should know, I was there. Florida was an overrated team who’s players had their eyes on the NFL. Bowl games are more difficult to predict because of the long break between games and the way different teams play different players with the draft coming up


cabbagehead112

Agreed with your observation. Gonna be a tough few years.


C-Jammin

So the OU defense still needs work


Snuffaluvagus74

That was not the defense fault. Only scored 3 points in the second half. Our defense is designed to get pressure while we score putting more pressure on the opposing teams offense to keep up. Forcing them to make mistakes


ChurnedClown

I’m other news, water = wet


groundsgonesour

It’s a rebuild decade


PheonixStreak

Big bummer for tulane, but hey losing by 1 score to a top 3 team is nothing to be ashamed about


Egospartan_

You mean former top three team


PheonixStreak

I mean yeah probably but right now they’re ranked #2


Egospartan_

And still a really good game by Tulane


reddit_names

OU won't end the season as a top 3


groundsgonesour

Not even in the Big 12 playing like this


PheonixStreak

Doesn’t look likely right now but currently Tulane has a very good quality loss


investorspossiblyyou

Can we have Tulane in the SEC instead of OU? Thanks and Gig 'em.


skyspirits

I’d be down to play Tulane more. We still have a losing record against them…


jawilder44

Yes I want to see that LSU Tulane rivalry


ChiefArsenalScout

Lol as if you’re better than us.


investorspossiblyyou

Aww that's cute.


LafitteThePirate

when OU gets in the SEC ... they'll be a middle of the pack team. About .500 every year. They'll see how hard it is. Will probably be like a Mississippi State or Ole Miss


Drill-or-be-drilled

Agreed. Can’t wait to see them lose to Arkansas after Arkansas loses to Rice. Join us.


jawilder44

I’d say Ole Miss is accurate


daKuledud3

It took one controversial no call to keep you guys from the worst loss of the year bar none Sit down


Happydude9000

This hurts, but you are right


jlock1986

That wrong PI call really killed Tulane's chance of winning, the ref that called that should publicly apologize and sit out a few games. Need to add Tulane flair, I'm a fan of that performance.


harrier1215

Lincoln’s the highest level coach with yet so much to improve


ThatLineOfTriplets

Kirby would like a word


harrier1215

Kirby beat Lincoln bc Lincoln chokes with a lead.


ChiefArsenalScout

It’s crazy how bad he is in the second half


Nuke_Dukum

It’s like he preps for the first 2 qtrs and wings it the second


harrier1215

He only really closed out Tech and Florida last year in terms of not blowing a lead. Kansas doesn’t count bc it’s a middle school team.


TommySawyer

No way in Hell they are a #2 team...


JollyRancherReminder

This was a classic OU season opener. We don't hit our stride until November.


boomerbrowns

Definitely didn’t look like it today. Feel like we got overrated by beating the shit out of Florida’s backups to end the season


pot8odragon

No way OU deserves to be ranked 2 after today. This is coming from a huge OU fan. Tulane is a gimme game. Also Rattler is awful


OkieJayBee

30-39, 304yds 1 TD 2 int. Is he Baker/Kyler? No. Terrible? No.


pot8odragon

Pretty terrible against a crap Tulane team. I’m an OU fan and this guy is by far the worst of the most recent QBs


ontariowarrior

Agreed about Rattler. Don’t see the hype for him. Didn’t see it last year either.


pot8odragon

Both him and Sam Howell seem to have been extremely over hyped.


ontariowarrior

I’m sure Sam Howell is a good dude, but I fucking hate all of the hype him and UNC have gotten just because of Mack Brown. Don’t hate him, just hate the hype around him due to an old coach.


legend023

Alabama game comes on and they’re already up 7-0 lmao it’s really college football season


jawilder44

Too be fair Oklahoma beat a pretty damn good Tulane team. Yes they are ranked too high but okie should still have a solid season. Tulane gonna surprise a lot of people. I think they beat ole miss


BabaDCCab

Oklahoma's defense is once again questionable


Throw1Back4Me

Like the sun rising in the east

Clarinetaphoner

Yikes


hookemandbookem

I just talked a whole lotta shit about OU now I'm nervous for the karma in 30 mins haha


Bort15

Yeah we need to chill before we lose by a TD to Louisiana at home. Or I suppose maybe you should get your shit talking in now before we start the season 0-2. I’m not thinking negatively or anything, though.


No_Poet_7244

I have zero expectations. Nothing can hurt me after Maryland.


thejourneyisthegift

This is typical ou September football. Has been for awhile. Not sure why anyone is shocked


[deleted]

Exactly they start out slow, they then dominate the conference, then get obliterated in the post season. Chill guys, it’s just OU football.


Nuke_Dukum

I guess beating Florida 55-20 in the Cotton Bowl last year doesn’t count.


thejourneyisthegift

I love non flair shit talk.


[deleted]

Alabama.


ThatLineOfTriplets

When’s the last time OU didn’t get upset or almost get upset by an underdog because of an awful defensive performance early in the season? They’ve always turned out pretty decent after it too.


thejourneyisthegift

Happens most years. Kind of annoying. They play a great second quarter than try and coast.


MarylandHusker

Keep it up for a few more weeks please.


thejourneyisthegift

Honestly wouldn’t shock me.


MarylandHusker

If it could be a not blowout, I'd be happy


thejourneyisthegift

Our first 4 games are either super close or giant blowouts


Xxehanort

The refs really saved Oklahoma's ass in this game


TommySawyer

This!


Amane_VIII

Fuck these refs. Bullshit spot *and* they missed a face mask.


Dpope32

Are you referring to the spot on the last play of the game where the Qb scrambled? Just out of curiosity

InauspiciousGroan

Our performance was worse than Lincoln Riley’s brisket


Claiborne_to_be_wild

Makes me feel good about the rest of the year


harrier1215

Pratt is as tough as can be. Serious respect there.


Claiborne_to_be_wild

He’s only a Sophomore (?) and played well last year, he’s probably the best QB we’ve had in at least 10 years


NolaBrass

I’d take him over both Patrick Ramsey and JP Losman, both of whom were first round picks


NolaBrass

Technically a freshman for eligibility purposes bc of the covid season lol


harrier1215

His receivers hurt him today bc some of his throws were really really good. I hope he stays healthy and gets a real look by nfl teams. His effort and toughness deserve it.


SmasherGuy1020

Great Job Tulane for playing a great game and trying to make a amazing comeback against Oklahoma. Dont sneeze on tulane,they can play really good football.


moocha316

Tulane’s good. They’ve been building a good program for the past seasons.


InsertAmazinUsername

OU won but in reality they lost.


Spaghyeti

Damn, GG Tulane. Coming to a road game that was supposed to be at home, and going toe to toe with the perceived Number 2 team in the nation? Well done. The odds couldn't have been more stacked against you.


meltedqueso

Respect to Tulane. Great team great game.


areweeveralive

Good game Tulane. Mad respect, excited to see what your guys do in the AAC


GingerMessiah88

This is the number 2 team in the nation? Lol


tha_undaground

GG Tulane bros. Y'all played your hearts out, arguably should've won. With all you guys been through, you guys put on a show.


Fiatil

Welp certainly a frustrating and sloppy game, but hooray not losing! I was definitely thinking to myself earlier in the game that normally this would be an upset without Brkic hitting a bunch of insane field goals; I'm sad that prediction was correct, but happy we have him!


JaGooner38

Willie Fritz can really coach especially after the Hurricane.


jawilder44

Pratt is a fucking beast. Best player on field today, even with mistakes


potterpockets

Mad fucking props Tulane. You guys played a hell of a game. Unfortunately came up short but y’all should be proud. Go out and make a NY6 bowl.


MrNudeGuy

if you don't like that you don't like Sooners football. I have alot to think about


PlaysWthSquirrels

Where did the Rattler hype even come from? I've never seen the dude look elite.


pot8odragon

OU looks awful


areweeveralive

Rattler needs more work


OKC89ers

Second half Rattler offense continues


mruab

Hell of an effort from Tulane


OKC89ers

Would really like it for someone to finally criticize the OU offense instead of the defense. 3 points in the 2nd half and people going after the defense.


zenverak

The defense to me held up after a bad start.


TeenRacer6

Its just what we are used to doing for the past 10 years, bur Rattler nearly fucked us in that game single handedly.


OKC89ers

A number of games last year, as well


MenacingAlgebro

Wasn't that a theme last season too? Not sure if it continues on all season but I definitely remember it being an issue in several games


TeenRacer6

Right up until he got benched during the Texas game and fixed himself for the rest of the season.


OKC89ers

"for the rest of the season" is a stretch


MenacingAlgebro

I mean, you didn't really need to give the details


LeReddit9GagXD

Put down money they stay in the top 5 after this. Money. Impressive win by the officials and Oklahoma today, they better give them a standing ovation afterwards.


thatgirl1227

Well that was an absolute disaster. Another vintage Riley team: capable but sloppy offense and an absolutely godawful defense that can’t cover receivers or tackle. It’s the same story every year. Hopefully the disneyheads will give up on the ridiculous Rattler hype.


LETX_CPKM

He did look confused out there today for sure. I expected more out of the entire team. The identity has not seemed to change. This game could have been played anytime the last 4 years.


EmpoleonNorton

Tulane played great. OU did not look like the #2 team in the nation.


TommySawyer

that's exactly what I thought ... and for the past 5 years ESPN lifts them up as one of the top teams in the country. Definitely not in the top 10.


i_got_the_poo_on_me

Respect Tulane, you deserved to win this game. I hope this humbled some Sooners who thought they were hot shit.


DuckMental6884

What an unbelievable performance. I have a feeling that’s not the last time we’ll hear the name Michael Pratt. That dude is going to be playing on Sundays.


NolaBrass

No one else I’d want leading this team than him and Coach Fritz. But by God I need him to learn how to time his slide. Terrifying every time he takes off


jcalvert8725

Gg Tulane. Y'all deserved this game so much more than OU did. I hope y'all win out this year and go to a NY6 game


wraithmain1

SEC SEC SEC!!!


chevyboxer

Good thing they didn't move this game to somewhere in Texas. Lincoln Riley could've been sued for this game.
