Oklahoma-Tulsa: One Big Thing

Oklahoma-Tulsa: One Big Thing
Ironing out the remaining kinks and getting the running game operating at peak efficiency would go a long way in Big 12 play next week.

With Jeff Lebby’s family controversy behind him, the Oklahoma offensive coordinator should be able to focus on finding a way to improve the Sooners’ running game.

Tawee Walker was excellent last week, with a career-high 117 yards on 21 carries.

But Walker is currently the only OU running back averaging more than five yards per carry (5.55). Marcus Major (4.12), Jovantae Barnes (3.60), Kalib Hicks (4.67), Daylan Smothers (2.29) and Gavin Sawchuk (2.0) are all coming in below the 5.0 standard.
