University of Oklahoma offensive coordinator Josh Heupel said running back/slot receiver Roy Finch is working to earn more playing time.

"We all know what type of talent Roy is.....ultimately, we are asking all of our guys to buy in," said Heupel, who was filling in at the weekly press conference for Sooners coach Bob Stoops who was at a funeral.

Finch saw his first substantial playing time of the season Saturday in the Sooners 69-13 win over Florida A&M. He had five carries for 50 yards and a touchdown.

Here is a look at what else Heupel, co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell and defensive coordinator Mike Stoops had to say on Monday:
