Sooner losses more than previously known

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Although it had been reporter Oklahoma wide receiver Malcolm Kelly had sustained a thigh bruise not long after the Sooners had arrived in Arizona, it wasn't thought to be serious. Well, think again.

Kelly did not start the game at his wide receiver position. Instead, it was Quentin Chaney who got the start. Further, rumors have swirled that Kelly's issue may be a hamstring rather than a thigh bruise. As the Sooners huddled offensively prior to their second series, Kelly was down the sideline beside other players. He was not a a part of the huddle.

Also, OU's best pass rusher, defensive end Auston English, who returned at less than full strength for the Big 12 championship game against Missouri, did not play during the Sooners' first defensive series.

And if that doesn't bode well for West Virginia, this does. Eight minutes into the game and OU has one first down, while Sam Bradford has been under consistent pressure. Meanwhile, in their only chane, the Mountaineers drove, but missed a 50-yard field goal.

West Virginia looks ready. The Sooners look flat.

Sound familiar?
