Now, before you try to haul me off in a straight-jacket and committed to the insane asylum, hear me out. "I think the footwork is the biggest difference between all the positions".

Ohio State defensive line vs. Oklahoma offensive line.

Saturday's meeting between the Sooners and Buckeyes will be aired on KOCO 5.

OU's playoff chances faded last September with losses to Houston and Ohio State in the season's first three weeks. The crowd of 84,016 included 15,000 Sooner rooters. Not sure how many Crimson fans will be there.

Oklahoma dropped to 1-2 on the season following that loss to the Buckeyes.

AAA: Gas prices up 16.7 percent from previous year
In Texas, two out of the three Port Arthur refineries remained closed and together they refine 1.163 million barrels of oil a day. D'Amelia, speaking from Stewart's corporate offices in Saratoga Springs, acknowledged a 45-cent jump in price is dramatic.

Washington was the biggest upward mover of the week, climbing from No. 24 to No. 20. Miller, who finished fifth as a sophomore and ninth as a junior, missed the 2014 season with an injury, then returned in 2015 but mostly as a receiver after Cardale Jones and J.T. Barrett took over at quarterback. OSU put up 596 yards in the win while allowing 437 yards to in, 420 of which came against the pass. Freshman J.K. Dobbins rushed for 181 yards to lead the offense with Mike Weber battling a hamstring injury. Weber, who romped for 123 yards against OU a year ago, returns this week. This game could signal the direction this season will go for third-year coach Mike Riley.

Five running backs got to carry the pigskin for the Sooners picking up 133 yards.

Westbrook led the Hoosiers with 54 catches for 995 yards last season.

He's the Sooners' leading receiver after one game, bringing down seven catches for 134 yards and a touchdown last week against UTEP. Eight players scored touchdowns. After that, OU's defense settled down and held UTEP to 89 yards the rest of the way.

VIDEO: Baker Mayfield talks to media following last year's 45-24 loss to Ohio State in Norman. "We've got little bit more depth, more experience". He also rushed for 61 yards on 13 carries. Washington 8. MI 9. It's a matchup of the nation's best lines. Properly deploying linemen and fullbacks to stop the evolving looks of some of the country's best defensive lines can be a logistical nightmare.

Sessions as face of DACA decision reveals WH struggle
A group that supports the program in Arizona is using a community summit this weekend to hold a session on DACA and reapplying. Something to help us continue moving forward as citizens of the United States because that's what we are", Marin said.

So the Big 12 will pin its hopes on OU at Ohio State and TCU at Arkansas.

On defense, the Sooners finished 68th nationally past year in points allowed per game, but the bulk of their struggles came in the early part of the season.

The line in front of Mayfield returns all five starters. As of today, line-setters have the Buckeyes as a -7.5 point favorite and the game's over/under at 64.5. A Heisman-like performance from Barrett leads the Buckeyes to the big win. Mayfield set a NCAA record for passing efficiency with a 194.6 rating for the 2016 season. So hopefully they can pull through and get it done.

Price and Elflein regularly practiced snapping after practices in past years and worked through the nuanced differences in footwork that come from the limited space in which the center gets to operate. I know why he (resigned) - because he thought (Riley) would carry on the same culture that he created. Ohio State is plenty capable of moving the football but to outscore the Sooners by a touchdown in this game is very debatable. For the most part, it is about when you lose.
