It is now or never for Steve Sarkisian to take down Oklahoma




 

The Oklahoma Sooners have owned the Red River Rivalry in recent years. Oklahoma has gotten the better of Texas in six of the last seven matchups between the two.

This season's game is going to be a defining moment for Steve Sarkisian and Texas.

Oklahoma enters this game in total dismay. The Sooners have lost back-to-back Big 12 Conference games to Kansas State and TCU.

Brent Venables' defense has made Adrian Martinez and Max Duggan look like Heisman Trophy candidates over the past couple of weeks. It got so bad Oklahoma fans were hoping the TV coverage would pan to another Aaron Judge at-bat.

Sooners' starting quarterback Dillon Gabriel is questionable with a head injury suffered in the loss to TCU. Not having a healthy Gabriel significantly hinders Oklahoma's offense.

Texas enters as the favorite against Oklahoma for the first time in over 10 years. It feels like now or never for Steve Sarkisian to flip the script in this rivalry. If Texas can not find a way to beat this Sooners squad, it might be time to question Sarkisian's future as head coach.
