Bob Stoops Gets A Nice Raise

1

Nick Saban ($5.16 MIL) and Mack Brown ($5.1 MIL) still make slightly more, but I think Bob will be satisfied being the 3rd highest paid coach in college football.

Danielle Robinson with 26 pts, 7 reb, 3 ast, 3 stl. OU had a 36-6 run in the first half. They held Prairie View to only 3 baskets in that 14 minute span, and scored 18 consecutive points at one time. The Sooners flashed how dominant they can be, but also showed some lapses, allowing Prairie View to mount a come back to a 9 point deficit, before finally putting them away. Oklahoma is still undefeated, and plays Sam Houston State at home next before a huge road matchup against Ohio State.
