PREVIEW: OU AT UTEP
KEY STAT: ROY FINCH'S TOUCHES
By Brandon Chatmon
Running back Roy Finch led the Sooners with 156 touches in 2011. And OU is looking to get the junior more involved this season.
It starts Saturday when OU will unveil Finch in the slot, allowing the 5-foot-8 dynamo to use his quickness, speed and open-field excellence to create mismatches in the secondary and big plays for the Sooners offense. OU has a package designed to get Finch involved so expect him to get 5 to 10 touches per game in 2012.

OU PLAYER TO WATCH

All eyes will be on running back Dominique Whaley, who is returning from a broken ankle. Bob Stoops says Whaley is healthy. Whaley himself says the same. But no one will know for sure until Whaley proves he's back in a game.
