Oklahoma had six games settled by a touchdown or less during the 2019 season. The Sooners went 5-1 during those games with the one loss coming at the hands of a controversial onside kick ruling.
OU won tight games against Texas, Iowa State, Baylor (Twice), and TCU with seemingly one or two plays being the difference. Think of CeeDee Lamb’s performance against the Longhorns. He had two incredible touchdowns in that game. Take either of those away and we potentially have an extremely different outcome. What would have happened if Parnell Motley didn’t intercept Brock Purdy on Iowa State’s 2-point conversion?
