Oklahoma Sooners Football: Going big on offense with 12 personnel

The Oklahoma Sooners performed as expected in their season opener, blasting the hapless Missouri State Bears by a final score of 48-0. The details of how OU roasted Missouri St. may be of more interest to Sooner Nation, given the level of competition.

On the offensive side of the ball, OU trotted out a host of personnel groupings and formations throughout the contest. The latest iteration of 12 personnel (one running back, two tight ends/H-backs, two wide receivers) is already looking like a trump card. OU’s first drive of the game offered a glimpse of what’s possible with this grouping when coach Lincoln Riley put his mind to it.
