It looks like there may be some bad blood between former Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley and the players he left behind.

On Wednesday night, the Sooners faced off against the Oregon Ducks in an Alamo Bowl matchup. Led by interim head coach Bob Stoops, the OU squad got off to a blazing start in their postseason game without Riley -- taking a 30-3 lead into the locker room at halftime.

This red-hot start on the offensive end showed a stark contrast to the inconsistencies that Riley's team exhibited throughout the season.

During the halftime break, defensive lineman Perrion Winfrey -- who opted out of the contest -- took to social media with an apparent shot at his former coach.

"I wonder what the problem was ????" he wrote on Twitter.

The tweet has since been deleted.

After five years at the helm in Norman, Riley accepted the USC Trojans' head coaching job in late November. He leaves the Oklahoma program with a 55-10 overall record.

Under interim head coach Bob Stoops, the Sooners claimed a 47-32 win over the Ducks.

Former Clemson assistant Brent Venables will kickoff the next era of Oklahoma football as head coach in 2022.
