The Oklahoman's OU beat writer Jason Kersey took questions from readers in today's OU Power Lunch Chat. Join our Power Lunch Chats Monday-Friday at 11 a.m. on NewsOK.com/Sports. Here's a digest of the questions from today:


Your thoughts on OU going the rest of the season undefeated? If they do, what bowl and what team would they might play?

I don't think OU will lose another game this season, and if that happens, a lot depends on other people. The Sooners would almost certainly play in a BCS game, but it really could be any of them depending on how things play out around the country. But lots of possibilities ... I don't think an OU/Notre Dame rematch in the Fiesta Bowl is out of the question. The Sooners could play Nebraska in the Rose Bowl, which would definitely be exciting.

Will Taylor Mac have 4 years of eligibility left?

Bob Stoops said yesterday that he'll receive a medical redshirt, which would mean that yes, he'll have four years of eligibility left.

With OU losing most, if not all, of its defensive line after this season, who can we look forward to seeing there next season? Will there any be standouts?

Michael Onuoha and Charles Tapper are true freshmen getting some PT this season, so I think they'll have a chance to be major players next season. Jordan Phillips is a very talented tackle, but he's still raw and needs improvement. PL Lindley, Rashod Favors and Chaz Nelson are also guys who could contribute. Lots remains to be seen on the D-line.
Any legit chance OU falls to Iowa State?
 
I think there's definitely a chance. Iowa State can be a tough place to play, and the Cyclones seem to be good for an upset every year. I think this is the game left on OU's schedule it is most likely to lose.
 
Are D. Williams and L. Johnson going to be able to play Saturday?
 
They are supposed to be back in practice today, and if they are I'd expect them to play Saturday.
 
Where was D.
