Oklahoma redshirt freshman Kennedy Brooks ran for 171 yards and two scores on 25 carries in a 55-40 victory over Kansas on Saturday.

Brooks also added a catch for seven yards. This was Brooks' backfield on Saturday, and he was more than up to the task against the not-so-good Jayhawks' defense. He's gone over 165 yards in back-to-back games, and he already has four multiple-score games for the Sooners. Oklahoma's offense is ridiculous. His next test comes Friday against West Virginia.
Nov 17 - 11:01 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray threw for 272 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 21-of-32 passing, and ran for 99 yards and three scores in a 55-40 victory over Kansas on Saturday.

Whew. Murray was ridiculous on Saturday -- again -- and might have had his Heisman moment in the close victory. After the Jayhawks pulled to within 11 at 35-24, Murray dashed for 75 yards, and he showed off his quickness and speed on the run, making a couple attempted tacklers look foolish. This is a two-man Heisman race -- with apologies to Wisconsin's Jonathan Taylor -- and Murray is right there in large part to efforts like this. A marquee showdown with West Virginia comes on Friday. We can't wait.

Oklahoma sophomore RB Trey Sermon (ankle) is unlikely to return to Saturday's game against Kansas due to injury.

Sermon's quest for a third consecutive game of at least 100 yards rushing will likely come to an end, as he left Saturday's game game after just one carry. With the sophomore running back on the sideline, Oklahoma will turn to Kennedy Brooks moving forward. Sermon entered Saturday with 846 yards and ten touchdowns on 131 carries this season.
Nov 17 - 8:29 PM

Oklahoma junior DE Amani Bledsoe will participate in Senior Day ahead of Saturday's game against Kansas.

Bledsoe is currently suing the NCAA for an extra year of eligibility after having a year taken away from him due to a suspension that stems from a PED violation. There's been no conclusion to the lawsuit, but it's entirely possible Saturday's game against the Jayhawks will be his last home game for the Sooners.

Oklahoma dismissed junior T Tramonda Moore for violating team rules.

The 6-foot-4, 322-pound Moore, a former ESPN 300 prospect and a ballyhooed four-star JUCO prospect, ended up never playing a down for the Sooners. Just like he never ended up playing a down for Oklahoma State, with whom he signed out of high school. The clock is ticking on Moore's career. The only bit of silver lining we can draw out of this is that Moore qualifies for a redshirt this year and still has two years of eligibility remaining. He'll have to get right quickly to take advantage of them.

Oklahoma freshman DE Jalen Redmond will miss the rest of the season due to recurrence of blood clots.

Sooners HC Lincoln Riley announced the news on Saturday. Redmond, originally expected to miss the entire season, ended up appearing in three games this year after he was medically cleared in October. A recurrence of the issue has caused him to be shut down. Because he only appeared in three games, he'll take a redshirt this year. A four-star recruit, Redmond was ranked as the No. 8 weakside defensive end in the country.

Oklahoma sophomore WR CeeDee Lamb has the highest passer rating when targeted among all Big 12 receivers this season according to Pro Football Focus.

There are times when being at the top of the list isn't impressive, or is more of the best of a bad situation. Not this one. The conference is loaded with top receivers, and Lamb (6'2/189) and his 147.3 rating is among the tops in the country. Marquise "Hollywood" Brown has a 136.3 rating, meaning that the Sooners have two of the top targets in the country. Credit to Kyler Murray for getting them the ball, but goodness gracious are the Sooners loaded at wide receiver.
Nov 12 - 9:19 PM

Oklahoma junior WR Marquise Brown caught eight passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 48-47 win over Oklahoma State.

Brown (5'10/168) popped free for a 51-yard touchdown catch near the end of the first half, his eighth scoring grab of the campaign. In addition, he has now caught 53 passes for 956 yards on the year. The junior wideout is among the more terrifying deep threats in the country. Good luck containing him next weekend, Jayhawks. Good luck.
Nov 10 - 9:01 PM

Oklahoma sophomore RB Trey Sermon rushed for 124 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries in Saturday's 48-47 win over Oklahoma State.

Sermon scored the pivotal touchdown of the game, hitting the end zone from one yard out midway through the fourth quarter to push Oklahoma to a 48-41 advantage. This was his fourth 100-yard showing of the season and the sophomore back is now up to an even 10 touchdowns for the campaign. Kansas shows next on Oklahoma's schedule as they look to stay in the thick of the Playoff hunt.
Nov 10 - 8:57 PM

Oklahoma redshirt freshman RB Kennedy Brooks rushed for 165 yards and three touchdowns on 15 carries in Saturday's 48-47 win over Oklahoma State.

Just a beautiful showing from Brooks, who at times seemed like he was covered in oil judging by Oklahoma State's failed tackle attempts. Though if we're being completely honest, neither team was stopping the other to any real degree in this one. The 5-foot-11, 205-pound redshirt freshman has become a truly integrated part of OU's prolific offensive attack, making the most of his opportunities with Rodney Anderson lost for the year with a knee injury and Trey Sermon dealing with minor injury concern of his own which has limited him in spots. Brooks has now turned in three 100-yard games this season, an impressive feat given that he began the season as the team's third-string back. He will have a shot for another big showing against Kansas next weekend.
Nov 10 - 8:54 PM

Oklahoma redshirt junior QB Kyler Murray completed 21-of-29 passes for 349 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 66 yards on 14 attempts in Saturday's 48-47 win over Oklahoma State.

Just the one touchdown pass for Murray, but make no mistake, he played brilliantly for the most part. It was just that RBs Trey Sermon and Kennedy Brooks combined for five scores to keep him from a more prolific stat-line. The Heisman contender is up to 32 scoring passes for the campaign and has now accounted for 39 total scores. He will have contests against Kansas and West Virginia remaining on the schedule as he looks to make a final push for award-season glory. That game against West Virginia could be one of the best ones we see this year. Both teams are true Playoff contenders with light-the-world-on-fire offenses.
Nov 10 - 8:49 PM

Oklahoma redshirt freshman DL Neville Gallimore (undisclosed) was helped off the field during the fourth quarter of Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

Gallimore (6'2/330) remained down on the turf for a couple minutes after taking a hit while attempting to tackle Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard. The redshirt senior, who appeared to land awkwardly, would eventually be helped to the Oklahoma sideline by a couple teammates.

Oklahoma freshman RB T.J. Pledger isn't in uniform for Saturday's game against Oklahoma State.

It's not entirely clear why Pledger isn't suited up and more details are sure to emerge later. He has been seeing more work as the season progressed with 91 yards on 13 carries against Kansas State two weeks prior. With Pledger sitting, the Sooners running back rotation will be awfully thin with Trey Sermon and Kennedy Brooks likely carrying the load.
Nov 10 - 3:08 PM

Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley said that junior WR Mykel Jones could potentially take a redshirt for the season.

Jones (5'11/186) has been a minimal factor in OU's explosive offensive attack this season, having caught just two passes for 37 yards (both against FAU in the opener). Given his lack of playing time, a redshirt would be logical enough, here.
Nov 7 - 9:09 PM

Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley said that senior S Jonathan Alvarez's football career has ended due to injury concern.

"Injuries piled up just a little too high for him," Riley said. Alvarez (6'3/315) did manage to start the first three games of the campaign, but redshirt freshman Creed Humphrey has been starting at center from that point onward. All told, Alvarez appeared in 26 games for the Sooners in his career, with 16 starts among those 26 contests.
