Oklahoma fans who braved the elements in a rain-soaked Memorial Stadium were lucky enough to witness history on Saturday as Sooners true freshman Samaje Perine broke the single-game rushing record with 427 yards and 5 TDs as the Oklahoma crushed Kansas 44-7.
QB Trevor Knight sat out with a neck injury and top receiver Sterling Shepard was having groin issues, so the Sooners had to rely on the 5’11”, 243 pound not-so-little-bulldozer-that-could.
Amazingly, Perine didn’t even start the game, but was still able to rack up 222 yards in the first half alone.
Perine did get some help along the way, but interestingly it was mostly from the Jayhawks defense and its non-existent tackling. It also didn’t help that the Kansas punter was afraid of the ball.
When Perine heard he was in striking distance of Wisconsin Badger’s running back Melvin Gordon’s 1-week old 408 yard record, he offered to sit, but the offensive line was having none of that. The rest is history. Well, until next week.
