Oklahoma downs third straight top-10 team

Oklahoma downs third straight top-10 team

NORMAN- Before the game even started, the Oklahoma Sooners had a hill to climb hosting No. 9 Alabama.

An hour before the game was slated to tip, the Sooners announced that a pair of starters, Austin Reaves and Alondes Williams, would miss the game due to COVID-19 protocols.

But depth has been the strength of this Oklahoma team all season long. Down the two starters, No. 24-ranked OU dug deep to seal its third straight win over a top-10 opponent, topping the Crimson Tide 66-61.
