Senior Offensive Lineman Erick Wren Rewarded With Scholarship

It was a good Monday for Erick Wren. A really good Monday.

The OU senior offensive lineman got the surprise he had always dreamed of when head coach Bob Stoops announced that he had been put on scholarship in front of all of his teammates during an afternoon pre-practice meeting.

"It was a great feeling. I didn't expect it to come like that," Wren said. "It came as a surprise and it feels good when all your hard work pays off. At that moment it paid off, but we still have to work for other things. That's just one of many goals accomplished. That's a major one, but I still have more."

Ohio State Blows Out Oklahoma 45-24

No. 3 Ohio State pushed No. 14 Oklahoma around all night in an easy 45-24 win, rushing 48 times for 291 yards as the Sooners struggled to contain the Buckeyes’ electric ball carriers.

The Sooners (1-2) had been stiff against the run in their first two games this season, but they had no answers for Ohio State (3-0). Quarterback J.T. Barrett joined running backs Mike Weber and Curtis Samuel in running through, around and over OU’s defense.

“They got us out of a lot of our stuff, made it a physical game, and we didn’t react well to it,” defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said.

QB Austin Kendall Thinks Baker Mayfield Will 'Light Up' Ohio State's Defense

Freshman quarterback Austin Kendall was interviewed on Sooner Sports TV and had some quote board material at the ready for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

When asked what his impressions were of Ohio State's defense, Kendall didn't seem too impressed.

"I've seen that they have a really basic defense," he said. "I think we can go out there, I mean Baker, and he'll light them up and I'm really looking forward to it if my number is called and I think I can do the same." (The Oklahoman)

Urban Meyer: Crowd Noise Is A Concern Against Oklahoma

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he anticipated a raucous environment Saturday in Norman.

“It's a concern,” Meyer said of the noise. “Wednesday and Thursday we'll pump crowd noise in like we normally do.

“This will probably be one of the loudest stadiums in the country.”

That hasn't typically been the reputation of Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium and Bob Stoops on Monday again expressed regret for his 2008 call-out of Sooners fans ahead of a home game against Texas Tech.

Riley: Pace Isn't An Issue For Samaje Perine

Running back Samaje Perine entered the season needing less than 1,100 yards to become OU’s all-time leading rusher. After two games, he still needs a little less than 1,000 to set the mark. He’s only rushed for 89 yards in two games.

Offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley doesn’t think Perine will have a problem reaching the mark.

“His pace, after two games last year, was probably to have 200 yards the whole season and that changed quite a bit,” Riley said. “It always comes and goes in this offense. There are games where these guys have big games and those guys have big games. Those are things you have to judge at the end of the year.” (Norman Transcript)
