NORMAN, Okla. (AP) It is a small sample size, but the numbers say Oklahoma's defense has improved this season.
The Sooners fielded one of the worst defenses in the nation last season. Just a good defense with Oklahoma's historically good offense and Heisman winner Kyler Murray might have produced a national title.
This season, the offense is just as good, leading the nation with 676.7 yards per game. But now, with it comes an aggressive, ball-hawking defense led by new coordinator Alex Grinch that has done its part in the 3-0 start for the fifth-ranked Sooners.
