Broyles hauled in 83 catches in nine games. He averaged 13.9 yards per reception and scored 10 touchdowns.

With Broyles sidelined, the Sooners struggled to find consistent production. In Bedlam, OU receivers combined for 20 catches for 180 yards, 9.0 yards per reception with no TDs.

“I was very disappointed with our performance at the receiver position,” said OU co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell. “But overall offensively we stubbed our toes in different areas.

“Whether it was the offensive line not blocking, or backs not holding onto the ball, or receivers not making plays, there was plenty of blame to spread around. Offensively, we did not respond against a very good offensive football team.”
