Reid steps in
Bobby Reid played the final 12 minutes after Zac Robinson suffered a shoulder injury. Reid, the former starter who was replaced by Robinson the third game of the season, was 1-of-3 passing for minus 1-yard and ran one time for one yard.
Reid has a stronger arm. But overall Robinson is more consistent and more productive. Robinson emerging as a viable running threat (72 rushing yards against OU) has taken this offense to another level. Reid compiled some solid stats last season. He led the Cowboys to the Independence Bowl. But it's been obvious in recent weeks Robinson is much more effective running the zone read option play which is why the 2007 offense has surpassed last year's stats.
OSU was limited to 299 total yards, including 89 in the second half. The Cowboys ran for 195 yards, the most OU has allowed all season. But OSU finished with a season-low 104 passing yards.
It's difficult to turn the Cowboys into a one-dimensional offense, but that's what happened after the Sooners built a 35-17 lead.
