Tashard Choice did not spend much time at Oklahoma, before transferring to Georgia Tech to be closer to family. But he did play a small part in the Sooners' 2004 season — when they finished 12-1 — collecting 100 yards on 22 carries.

On Sunday, at least for now, he became the Buffalo Bills' No. 1 running back. C.J. Spiller suffered a shoulder injury against the Cleveland Browns. And Spiller had recently replaced Fred Jackson, who is still recovering from a knee sprain.

Choice finished with 91 yards on 20 carries as Buffalo beat Cleveland, 24-14. Check out how other NFL players with state ties fared during Week 3:
