Who's hot and who's not: Plenty of offense available for the Sooners and Tigers

Who's hot
•OU running back Allen Patrick: Welcome back, Allen Patrick. The senior rushed for a career-high 202 yards and had three touchdowns to lead OU past rival Oklahoma State, 49-17.

The week before, Patrick fumbled on OU's first play on which quarterback Sam Bradford suffered a concussion tackling the defender who recovered the ball. Without Bradford, the Sooners lost to Texas Tech, 34-27.

•Missouri quarterback Chase Daniel: Daniel completed 40 of 49 passes for 361 yards and three touchdowns in last weekend's 36-28 win over rival Kansas.

Not only that, Daniel is making a late push for the Heisman Trophy as the quarterback on the nation's No. 1 team.

Who's not
•OU receiver Malcolm Kelly: Where have you gone, Malcolm Kelly? The junior had just two catches for 10 yards against OSU. Kelly hasn't had more than six receptions in a game this year and only two touchdowns against Big 12 opponents.

•Missouri receiver Martin Rucker: Rucker had five catches and a touchdown against Kansas. But earlier this week, the Big 12 coaches passed him over for first-team All-Big 12 tight end, instead going with OSU's Brandon Pettigrew, even though Rucker by far has more receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns than Pettigrew.
