The Oklahoma Sooners grabbed themselves a big conference victory today as they were able to come back and hold off the previously-unbeaten Texas Tech Red Raiders, 38-30. It was a breath of fresh air for the program after that disappointing loss to Texas just a few weeks ago.
But, the victory didn’t come without a loss, as fullback Trey Millard will miss the rest of the season after tearing ligaments in his knee that will ultimately require surgery.
Stoops said Trey Millard will have surgery in a few weeks. Tore ACL and another ligament “Whole team crushed by it.”

While in today’s world, not much respect is given to the fullback position, Millard is a huge loss for this offense. He was versatile out of the backfield and provided a lot of options for Bob Stoops.
For the time being, junior Aaron Ripkowski will be filling the void left by Millard, which again, is a big one to fill.
