Lincoln Riley: Don't Blame Offensive Line in Loss

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was sacked five times during Saturday's 33-23 loss to Houston.

Sooners offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley said the offensive line — which featured two first-time starters and another player switching positions — wasn't to blame for the lack of protection.

“I thought the offensive line was probably the strongest part of our offense today,” Riley said. “We didn't turn guys loose maybe but one or two plays. There were some deals coverage-wise or route-wise that maybe weren't great, or Baker wasn't getting rid of it or it was on me. I'll have to watch the film to see. We knew it was going to be a good matchup. We knew they were good up front. I thought our guys did some good things. I thought they were the strong part of us offensively.” (The Oklahoman)
