Season likely over for standout walk-on Dominique Whaley

NORMAN — As good as Oklahoma’s performance was Saturday against Kansas State, it came with a price. Running back Dominique Whaley is expected to miss the rest of the season after breaking his left ankle on the game’s first play.

“I think they’re going to have to do surgery tomorrow and put a pin in it,” OU coach Bob Stoops said. “I’m sure that will be it for Dom for the year. Really sad for Dom. What a great young man. We’ll miss him.”

Whaley was blocking on a sweep and was rolled up from behind by a Kansas State defender. An air cast was put on his left leg and he was taken off the field on a cart. He returned to sidelines later in the game, but was on crutches.

“It was devastating to see him go down,” said Sooner running back Roy Finch. “We all know how hard he’s worked all year. He was a major contributor to our team. He was our workhorse. To see him go down was just so sad. We just prayed, and he’s going to be OK. We had to move on and make plays without him.”

Finch rushed for 73 yards on nine carries Saturday. Freshman Brandon Williams rushed for 22 yards on eight carries. Fullback Trey Millard also got one carry and rumbled for a 61-yard touchdown.


Another record

Ryan Broyles, who had 171 receiving yards, set the Big 12 Conference record for career receiving yards Saturday. The previous mark was 4,414 yards set by Oklahoma State’s Rashaun Woods (2000-03). Broyles finished the day with 4,449. He needs 506 yards in the next five games to reach the NCAA all-time mark set by Nevada’s Trevor Insley (1996-99).


Big day for Jones

OU quarterback Landry Jones set a school record with 505 passing yards. However, the performance also caused another school record to fall.
