Error: Murray's Total Rushing Yards 208 Against Utah State

Murray's rushing yards amended after error: A statistical error by the Oklahoma stats crew during last week's season-opening victory over Utah State credited too many rushing yards to Sooners running back DeMarco Murray. Murray was originally credited with 218 yards. His amended total is 208. The discrepancy happened in the fourth quarter of the Sooners' 31-24 win. On a second-and-7 play from the OU 49, Utah State committed a 5-yard substitution infraction. The penalty moved the ball ahead to the Utah State 46, but the stat crew inadvertently recorded the subsequent play from back at the OU 44. The next play--a 5-yard Murray gain--ended at the Utah State 41, and the stats initially reflected Murray with a 15-yard run instead of a 5-yard run. (More at Tulsa World)
