The Sooner Club of Las Vegas
The Sooner Club of Las Vegas is a support group of the University of Oklahoma. Membership is open to alumni, friends and Sooner fans in the southern Nevada area.
Our purpose is to:
Provide fellowship for alumni and friends of OU
Encourage a better informed alumni body
Promote the interests and needs of the University in the community
Our main goal is to provide an annual academic scholarship to a graduating senior from the Clark County School District in Southern Nevada. Funds for the scholarship come from membership dues and tax-deductible donations from our members. They are matched dollar for dollar by the University, effectively doubling our scholarship amount.
We thank you for your continuing support.
Glen Williams - President
Kevin Morsey - Vice President
Bryan Kurz - Scholarship Chair
Brian Nixon - Steering and Planning Committee Chair

OKLAHOMA VS BAYLOR RECAP
The Sooners played an all around outstanding game against Baylor on Saturday, winning the "Shootout in Waco" 44-34. The offense and defense both played outstanding and showed the nation that Oklahoma is a team to be reckoned with in the MBCFP (Make Believe College Football Playoff). With the exception of a few bonehead penalties, the Sooners played a near perfect game. Our defensive line dominated, holding the Bears to 159 yards rushing, about half of their usual output. They also picked off Stidham twice and sacked him twice. The secondary shutdown Baylor's receivers much of the game, holding them to only one TD. Their 2nd TD pass was to their HUGE tight end. Their top receiver had 5 catches for 77 yards. Sterling Shephard had 14 catches for 177 yards and 2 TD's. Baylor's RB, Linwood, had 116 yards rushing and 0 TD's. He had been averaging 8.1 yards per carry. Our D held him to a 4.9 ypc average. Samaje Perine ran for 169 yards and 2 TD's and Baker Mayfield ran 15 times for 100 yards and 1 rushing TD. Baker completed 24 of 34 passes for 270 yards and 3 TD's. Kudos to Bob Stoops and the entire coaching staff for getting the team prepared to play.
