NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - Seventh-ranked Oklahoma will have an extra week to figure out how to move forward without All-American receiver Ryan Broyles.
Already dealing with the loss of starting running back Dominique Whaley to a broken ankle, the Sooners (8-1, 5-1 Big 12) took another blow Saturday when Broyles suffered a season-ending knee injury in the third quarter of a 41-25 win against Texas A&M.
Broyles shattered the NCAA record with 349 career receptions and he ranks second all-time with 4,586 receiving yards. Oklahoma will miss him as a reliable receiver who could line up outside or in the slot and wiggle free against any coverage.
The Sooners are off this week before playing Nov. 19 at Baylor. Oklahoma has won all 20 of its games against the Bears.
