That’s exactly what Kansas State did against Baylor, and it nearly worked. The Wildcats ran 80 plays, gained 327 yards rushing and nearly doubled Baylor in time of possession.
Kansas State held the ball for more than 12 minutes in the third quarter and emerged with a four-point lead.
If Oklahoma chooses to do likewise it will do so without senior fullback Trey Millard, the team’s best blocker who tore his ACL in the Texas Tech win.
“Trey going down is detrimental to our offense," Clay said."It’s a big void to fill, but I think Brannon Green and Aaron Ripkowski are gonna do a great job filling that void and we’ll be fine.”
As Bob Stoops pointed out, the Sooners controled the clock last week without Millard. Oklahoma’s 12-play, 53-yard drive lasted nearly six minutes of the fourth quarter, forcing Tech to use its timeouts.
“I was really excited to see us do that again late in the game,” Stoops said.
