Video of Patrick's Stampede
On the topic of would Oklahoma be able to overcome the loss of Adrian Peterson everyone had a different opinion coming into Saturday night's game against the Colorado Buffaloes. And while the Buffs, and first year head coach Dan Hawkins, arrived in Norman a meager 1-6 they were fresh off a 30-6 demolition of the normally potent Texas Tech offense.
So there was no question that Oklahoma's offense would be tested in it's first time out but late Saturday night it was clear that while Allen Patrick may not always be pretty running the ball, he is certainly effective.
While Patrick got the load of the carries, he wasn't the only Sooner back put to use as both Jacob Gutierrez and Chris Brown stepped up to aid the starter with Brown picking up not only his first playing time and carry but his first career touchdown.
Meanwhile the Sooner defense continued to pick up steam turning in a stifling performance for the third straight week. Some of the Sooner defensive stars included Rufus Alexander, Nic Harris, and Zac Latimer.
