What did we think/hope would happen?
The RB position would be shared by a healthy Dominique Whaley and newcomer Damien Williams. Brennan Clay would be used primarily in a third-down role. Roy Finch would be used primarily as a slot wide receiver.
If any injuries issues occured, Oklahoma could pull the redshirt off of impressive freshman Alex Ross.
What did happen?
The combination of a Bedlam win and the program's first Big 12 championship produced pure elation for Oklahoma State a year ago.
Coach Mike Gundy and his Cowboys had the opposite feeling in the rematch.

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Landry Jones threw for 500 yards and three touchdowns, and Brennan Clay scored on an 18-yard run in overtime to lift No. 14 Oklahoma to a 51-48 win against No. 22 Oklahoma State in the Bedlam rivalry on Saturday.
The Sooners (9-2, 7-1 Big 12) never led during regulation, overcoming double-digit deficits in both halves. Backup quarterback Blake Bell tied it...
For most of three seasons, Brennan Clay has bided his time, waiting for his chance to be the starting running back for No. 14 Oklahoma.
That chance came Saturday against Iowa State and Clay shined with a 157-yard effort. His emergence gives Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops a good problem as the Sooners (6-2, 4-1 Big 12) prepare to host Baylor (4-4, 1-4) this Saturday - a slew of running...

NORMAN, Okla. — Running back Brennan Clay put together his best game as a Sooner with 157 yards and a touchdown the other day against Iowa State, and Sooners Illustrated catches up with him to talk about it.

NORMAN, Okla. — Sooners Illustrated caught up with running back Brennan Clay after OU's first practice to get his opinion on how things went.
No. 19 Oklahoma hung on late to outlast a pesky Iowa team 31-14 in the 2011 Insight Bowl. Oklahoma was gaining yards in bits instead of its usual chunks. Its defense was solid before giving up a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter to lose nearly all of a 21-point lead. Then a camera fell from the sky. It wasn’t always pretty, but the Sooners grinded out a win, closing out...
