What Lincoln Riley said at halftime with Oklahoma trailing LSU 49-14
Oklahoma is getting absolutely embarrassed by LSU in the Peach Bowl in Atlanta on Saturday evening.
Heisman-winning QB Joe Burrow has thrown for 7 touchdowns (not a typo) and the Tigers lead the Sooners by the lopsided score of 49-14.
Entering the locker room at halftime, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley spoke with ESPN and said the Sooners need to refocus and do a much better job of executing in the second half:
“We need to run the calls,” he said. “They’re a good enough team as it is. Give them credit. They’ve run a lot of nice plays, but we’ve busted way too many calls on both sides of the ball — a lot of missed opportunities we haven’t made. We’ve got to do a better job. … There are opportunities out there. We’re a lot better team than that and we need to play like it.”
This game appears to be over, but you know coach Ed Orgeron and the Tigers won’t back down just yet. We’ll see if the Sooners can cut into the Tigers’ lead in the third quarter, but for now, the Sooners look like a defeated team.
