Skill players not named Murray, Broyles need to play better
Last week in a win over Florida State, it looked like Oklahoma’s auxiliary offensive personnel had turned a corner. Cam Kenney had a huge game. So did tight ends James Hanna and Trent Ratterree. And Mossis Madu and Dejuan Miller.
One step forward. One step back.
Saturday in the win over Air Force, the auxiliary personnel disappeared, as Ryan Broyles and DeMarco Murray had to carry the OU offense again.
Kenney had just one catch and a couple of drops. Hanna got hurt in the first half. Miller and Ratterree had just one catch for six yards apiece. Madu had just three rushes for 9 yards.
If it weren’t for freshman wideout Kenny Stills coming up with a couple of a big catches late, the supporting cast of a skill players would have been a total non-factor.
Going forward, better teams, especially Texas, will be able to contain Murray and limit Broyles.
In those games, especially Texas, OU’s other guys have to show up more.
