SIT DOWN, STAND UP
Junior receiver Cameron Kenney had a breakout game against Miami, catching six passes for 72 yards and his first career touchdown.

But last week against Baylor, Kenney was benched for the second half after dropping several attempts.

"If you’ve got guys out there that can make the plays, they should be out there,” Kenney said. "Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make the plays I was supposed to.”

Kenney’s fellow receivers recorded 10 dropped passes against the Bears without their No. 1, Ryan Broyles, who could return against Texas after fracturing his shoulder blade against Miami.

CARTER PRACTICES
Safety Quinton Carter practiced Monday after missing time with an injured knee against Baylor. The only Sooner who did not practice on Monday was offensive lineman Brian Simmons, who will not play against Texas. Stoops declined comment on the severity of Simmons’ or Carter’s injuries. Stoops also would not say who would be starting in place of Simmons.

QUOTABLE
→"That’s probably like a World Cup right there. It’s gonna be crazy.”
