For the most part, the Sooners did their job. Positions were held, along with many other good things you're supposed to do on rings that I would never understand (pommel horse guy here). But, the rotation was nothing like what we saw at West Point in 2017 (pure domination). There were steps on landings and even hands put down by fifth-year senior and captain, Reese Rickett.
Given how stellar the All-American has been throughout his career, it came as a bit of a shock and seemed like it would open the door for a team like Illinois, Minnesota or Stanford.
The impressive thing is, it didn't phase Oklahoma. Rickett was greeted by a group of teammates who visibly had his back and were ready to fight for him.
Said Williams when asked about this particular moment, "I think that’s something that we’ve tried to always feel like we’re going to pick up a guy and the next guy’s going to step up and do what we have to do to get back on track."
