Is Baker Mayfield eligible to play? And other things we learned about the Sooners Monday

We might have known it before, and it was confirmed Saturday, but Bob Stoops and the rest of the Sooners were still talking about it on Monday. Everybody is impressed with freshman running back Samaje Perine. And after that performance in West Virginia where he rushed for 242 yards, Perine bought his offensive linemen pizza as a thank-you.

Oklahoma WR Shepard becoming a star

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma receivers coach Jay Norvell believes Sterling Shepard is in an elite category. That doesn't mean his star is above some prodding. 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.

Freshman RB Perine carries Oklahoma to win over West Virginia

Samaje Perine got into the open field, into the endzone, into the Oklahoma record books and suddenly a question came to mind. Who the heck ever tackled that guy in high school? Because West Virginia certainly couldn't do it on Saturday night in Morgantown, W.V.

Oklahoma is to be reckoned with, friends

Folks, Oklahoma looks different. And like a pow wow of goth kids in a tree house, “different is cool.” Oklahoma runs the football, and the Sooners run the football with force, when they want, how they want, and when you know it’s coming. Call it a coming out party for Samaje Perine, who went for 243 and 4 touchdowns on Saturday night against West Virginia, but also call it...
