Week 2 helmet stickers
By Brandon Chatmon
Here are the helmet stickers after Oklahoma’s 16-7 win over West Virginia on Saturday.
Running back Brennan Clay: The senior running back rushed for a career-high 170 yards on 22 carries, averaging 7.73 yards per carry. Clay came up big after the Sooners' passing game struggled. He used his physical, slashing style to carve up yardage against the Mountaineers. If Clay continues to perform at a high level, OU will have one of the Big 12’s top rushing duos with him and Damien Williams.
Safety Gabe Lynn: The senior looks comfortable after his offseason move to safety. Lynn had a major impact on the game with one fumble recovery and one interception in addition to his three tackles on the afternoon. His instinctive nature at the deep safety spot has been one of the pleasant surprises of the first two games for OU’s defense.
Defensive end Charles Tapper: He’s quickly becoming one of the best players on the Sooners' defense. The sophomore finished with five tackles and one quarterback hurry against the Mountaineers and was able to consistently work his way into the WVU offensive backfield. OU desperately needed to improve its pass rush, and Tapper is looking like the man who could do it after the first two games.
