Oklahoma experienced a mini-exodus at the running back position last season.
One game into this season and it looks like the fifth-ranked Sooners (1-0) have found their man. Damien Williams became only the eighth player in Oklahoma history to crack 100 yards rushing in his debut.
A former San Diego high school star, Williams led the National Junior College Athletic Association in scoring and rushing last season at Arizona Western College. Right away, he's been able to fill a void left when three reserves transferred from Oklahoma during last season.
The highlight of his debut was a 65-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that sealed the 24-7 opening win at UTEP.
