NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Defensive coordinator Mike Stoops has been a popular figure for Oklahoma fans to blame for failures over the years.

Some wonder whether his leaky defense will hinder the team’s championship hopes.

The defense has played a key role in Oklahoma claiming the Big 12 title. Stoops will have a shot at more vindication when the Sooners face Georgia in a national semifinal on Jan. 1 at the Rose Bowl.
