NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Last year, Oklahoma's passing game was stagnant when Sterling Shepard wasn't involved. The Sooners have no such problem this year. Shepard is still Oklahoma's top receiver, but he's got plenty of help. Dede Westbrook, Mark Andrews, Jarvis Baxter, Durron Neal and Joe Mixon all have proven themselves capable targets. The result is that the 15th-ranked Sooners...

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Sterling Shepard is back to being a game changer. Oklahoma's top receiver missed most of the second half of last season with a hamstring injury, but the senior came back in a big way against Tennessee. He scored the game-tying touchdown with 40 seconds left, then leaped over a defender near the sideline to score the game winner in a 31-24 double overtime victory...

When Shepard slows down a bit in practice, Norvell sometimes brings up the name of a former Sooner great - Ryan Broyles, the all-time FBS leader in receptions.

Sterling Shepard is back and Dorial Green-Beckham is at the top of the list of questions when it comes to who will stand out this season at receiver. Shepard is a sure thing and he'll be the No. 1 target for Trevor Knight, but past that, there is very little experience returning. Meanwhile, the Sooners are still waiting on Green-Beckham's eligibility. The transfer from Missouri still...
