OU's Whaley (Who?) Has Huge Game

OU's Sooners crushed Tulsa 47-14 Saturday night thanks to a new star: Dominique Whaley.

Before enrolling at OU, Whaley was an NAIA benchwarmer. Some replacement for DeMarco Murray. Some replacement indeed.

Rising out of complete obscurity, Whaley rushed right into OU history Saturday night.

Consider what Whaley accomplished against the Golden Hurricane: • The most rushing touchdowns by an OU walk-on in a single game. • The first 100-yard game by an OU walk-on in 36 years. • Became the second Sooner to run for four touchdowns in his debut, with Murray being the other.

Whaley ran for 131 yards and four touchdowns on a game-high 18 carries, the final score coming on a gorgeous 32-yard scamper through Tulsa's defense.
