  • OU football: First-half observations from OU-West Virginia

    ryan aber | Updated: 2 hr ago

    MORGANTOWN, W.Va.—Oklahoma and West Virginia are tied at 24 at the half here at Milan Puskar Stadium. Here are a few quick thoughts, things to watch moving forward and stats from the first half. THREE THINGS THAT STOOD OUT -Samaje Perine is a beast and Alex Ross can flat out sprint. Without Keith Ford, we knew those two would need to make plays and they've delivered, though OU inexplicably went away for Perine for a big chunk of the half before going back to him with success late. Then when it seemed like West Virginia would go into the half with the momentum, the Sooners seize it back with a 100-yard kick return by Ross for a touchdown. That's three plays of 80 yards or more for Ross already this season.

  • OU football: First-quarter observations from OU-West Virginia

    West Virginia led 7-3 after the first quarter. OU's only points came on a Michael Hunnicutt 42-yard field goal. Some quick observations: - Had Trevor Knight hit Sterling Shepard in stride on the Sooners' first drive, Shepard might still be running. Shepard had acres of space to run in the slot, but Knight threw behind him on third-and-five, missing on a chance to get out ahead 7-0 early. Knight (5-for-12, 60 yards) did show off good arm strength, particularly outside of the pocket, and his receivers had some drops. - Hello, Samaje Perine. His first touch went for 15 yards and the true freshman saw a bulk of the carries in the first quarter -- six for 31 yards -- three times as many as sophomore Alex Ross.
