Oklahoma will have an extra week to figure out how to move forward without All-American receiver Ryan Broyles. Already dealing with the loss of starting running back Dominique Whaley to a broken ankle, the No. 7 Sooners (8-1, 5-1 Big 12) took another blow Saturday when Broyles suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third quarter of a 41-25 win against Texas A&M.
