One man goes down, another steps up. And in this case he stepped up in a major way.
Samaje Perine was the hero with a herculian effort against the Mountaineers. When you read the stats for Perine it’s hard not to get excited at what the future may hold for the true freshman from Pflugerville, Texas. 244 yards and 4 touchdowns. And no, that’s not stats from the last time you hooked up Playstation.
Perine and the offensive line just took it too West Virginia and never let up. This OU offense is quickly being defined by its punishing offensive line and running game. And it’s a good thing too. The air attack is still trying to find itself. Knight still has trouble looking past his primary target and can have trouble with his accuracy.
