Venables Vibes: Oklahoma Emerges From the Bye Week Healthy and Focused

The No. 6-ranked Sooners used the off week to heal up at a few spots while working to improve off their imperfections from the first half of the regular season.

NORMAN — Oklahoma gets back to work on Saturday.

The No. 6-ranked Sooners will square off against UCF for the first time in program history, still riding the 34-30 victory over then-No. 3 Texas.

Brent Venables said his team used the bye week to heal up and correct some of the smaller mistakes still plaguing the team ahead of taking the field against Gus Malzahn’s Knights (3-3, 0-3 Big 12).

The contest will air on ABC at 11 a.m. Saturday, which is just another sign of the heightened interest in the Sooners after entering the College Football Playoff race with the victory over the Longhorns, but Venables has maintained the focus must stay present in the locker room to finish the back half of the regular season with the same success Oklahoma (6-0, 3-0) found through its first six games.
