A strong running back presence marked the Sooners’ 48-16 steamrolling of Louisiana Tech.
Running backs Keith Ford, Alex Ross and true freshman Samaje Perine combined for five touchdowns.
Meanwhile, sophomore QB Trevor Knight threw for 253 yards and one TD in his sixth career start. He went 19-for-34 in passing with one interception.
But the running backs stole the show. Even six of Knight’s passes went to Ford, who had 65 receiving yards.
The game had most Sooners fans talking about the strength of the running back corps. All told, Ford, Ross and Perine combined 260 yards from scrimmage and Ross added an 80-yard kickoff return that set up the Sooners’ final touchdown.
