The Oklahoma offense has been up-and-down through the first half of the season. But it’s coming off back-to-back dominating performances. Here’s SoonerNation’s midseason report on the OU offense:

Offensive MVP: RB Damien Williams. The junior-college transfer has ignited the ground game in a huge way. Williams already has three runs longer than any the Sooners had produced going back to 2008. Williams is averaging almost eight yards per carry with six touchdowns.

Most surprising player: Sterling Shepard. Nobody doubted the true freshman would eventually make an impact. Just not this quickly. Shepard was OU’s best offensive player in the loss to Kansas State, and has 206 yards receiving on the season. He’s firmly positioned himself in a deep receiving rotation.
Plea Deal For Sooners' Mixon
Lester Munson discusses the Alford plea obtained by Oklahoma running back Joe Mixon's legal team, which helped the freshman avoid a trial and will potentially erase the guilty plea from his record.
