The Oklahoma football team will face Oregon in the Alamo Bowl at 8:15 p.m. on Dec. 29 at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.

The Sooners began the 2021 NCAA college football season with a 40-35 win over visiting Tulane. OU finished their non-conference slate undefeated, rolling to a 76-0 win over Western Carolina and beating Nebraska by a closer-than-expected score of 23-16

OU opened Big 12 play with a 16-13 win against West Virginia in Norman. After dropping Kansas State in Manhattan 37-31, the Sooners faced Texas in Austin and found a new starting quarterback in the process.

'What's best for the program':Why Bob Stoops' legend has never been bigger among Sooner fans

The Sooners struggled against the Longhorns early in the 2021 edition of the Red River Rivalry. For the second consecutive year against Texas, OU quarterback Spencer Rattler was benched -- this time in favor of Caleb Williams, who led OU to a thrilling 55-48 comeback win that insured the Sooners bowl eligibility.

A week after OU routed TCU 52-31, the Sooners ran into trouble against the Kansas Jayhawks in Lawrence. Kansas led the game at halftime 10-0, and prospects for an upset were still alive enough in the second half to compel KU administrators to open the doors to Booth Stadium to anyone who wished to attend what ended a 35-23 OU victory

The Sooners ended October undefeated after a 52-21 rout of Texas Tech in Norman Oct. 30.

After a bye week following the win against the Red Raiders, OU lost a November football game for the first time since 2014, as the Baylor Bears defeated the Sooners 27-14 in Waco Nov. 13. OU head football coach Lincoln Riley tried swapping quarterbacks in the third quarter, but Spencer Rattler had no better luck than did Caleb Williams against the Bears. 

Following a 28-21 win against Iowa State, OU entered one of the bigger Bedlam games in recent history Nov. 27. OU lost to Oklahoma State 37-33, and the Sooners season ended with a 10-2 overall record, including a 7-2 Big 12 record.

The next day, Lincoln Riley announced he was leaving OU for the head coaching job at USC.
