Oklahoma football: Could addition of Damien Williams supersede need for the Belldozer?

OU FOOTBALL — Oklahoma running back Damien Williams, and his ability to be the Sooners' physical presence in the red zone, could nullify the need for Blake Bell's Belldozer.

Sophomore guard Adam Shead said it doesn't matter to him whether OU uses the Belldozer or not.

“As long as we're getting the job done, it doesn't matter,” Shead said. “Whether we're using Damien or Blake, as long as we're getting first downs and scoring touchdowns, that's all that matters.”

But James Patton, the OU assistant coach in charge of centers and guards, still considers the Belldozer an important option for the Sooner offense.

“We're gonna need that package,” Patton said. “We can do it in the middle of the field.

“We've got a lot of variations of it, but it all comes down to what you can execute.”
