OU: The Sooner offensive line has helped OU rank No. 4 nationally in passing yards (324.4), No. 13 in total offense (470.27) and No. 16 in scoring offense (36.3). But they've struggled to create running lanes for DeMarco Murray as OU averages just 3.47 yards per carry this season and allow 1.55 sacks per game.
OSU: Chris Donaldson and Shane Jarka have been solid at defensive tackle after entering the season as a potential question mark while defensive ends Jamie Blatnick, Richetti Jones and Ugo Chinasa have combined for 11 sacks. But OSU lacks the dominant pass rush threat who must be accounted for on every snap.
