Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium
Oklahoma got back on track offensively last week against Idaho State but let’s be honest, had they not heads would have rolled. Beating the Bengals soundly wasn’t something that you want to pound your chest over and it certainly didn’t do anything to remove the pessimistic attitude that many fans have towards the OU offense.
Oklahoma bounced back, as expected, against Idaho State with a dominating defensive performance and offensive speed.

Well that was easy. Of course when you consider the competition it should have been easy. The question is, did you get to see what you expected in this blowout?
Idaho State’s offense left a lot to be desired last Saturday night in the desert. The Bengals only mustered 3 points and 37 total net yards. Even more alarming for Idaho State is that the Bengals only managed four first downs for the entire game (one of which came by penalty), they were 1-13 on third downs and averaged just 0.8 yards per offensive snap.
Idaho State is a bad football team that is offensively inept. However, defensively they may be better than advertised.
