Oklahoma vs Oregon
RB Kennedy Brooks, Oklahoma: Will Caleb Williams stick around of transfer under the new coaching staff? How will the rest of the receiving corps look? At the very least, it appears as if Brooks will be around for the bowl game after leading the team with 1,111 yards and ten scores – he’ll be more of a workhorse.
DT Perrion Winfrey, Oklahoma: Star pass rusher Nik Bonitto is leaving early for the NFL Draft, but there are still enough good parts to work around on defense. The hope is for the 6-4, 292-pound Winfrey to be the anchor to steady the D. He’s big, tough, and can get behind the line with 5.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss.
WR Devon Williams, Oregon: The Ducks desperately need to find playmakers on both sides of the ball with all of the massive departures. The 6-5, 207-pound Williams has to step up and do even more after catching 35 passes for 554 yards and four scores. He might not be a volume receiver, but he’s the big play threat.
RB Travis Dye, Oregon: What will the do-it-all running back do with all the changes? He stepped up with CJ Verdell going down, running for 1,118 yards and 15 touchdowns to go along with a team-high 41 catches with two touchdowns. While he’s only 5-10 and 190 pounds, he’s able to go as a workhorse.
