Draft Scout Brennan Clay News
11/23/13 - The Oklahoma Sooners defeated Kansas State 41-31 to keep their faint Big 12 title hopes alive on a cold, blustery senior day at Bill Snyder Family Stadium Saturday. The Sooners (9-2, 6-2 Big 12) took the lead on their first drive and never trailed. In the process, Bob Stoops became the winningest coach in OU history, passing Barry Switzer. Stoops is 158-39-0 in 14-plus years at Oklahoma. Switzer was 157-29-4 from 1973-88. The temperature at kickoff was 25 degrees with winds that gusted to 20 mph. Both teams took the wind into account, especially Kansas State in the second quarter.
The Wildcats (6-5, 4-4) ran just eight offensive plays in the second quarter with the wind at their backs. The eight plays -- seven passes -- netted 234 yards and three touchdowns, after gaining just 37 yards in the first quarter. All three touchdowns were to Tyler Lockett (48, 30 and 90 yards), who tied a school record for touchdowns in a game. Lockett also set school records with 278 receiving yards for the game and 440 all-purpose yards. The Sooners, meanwhile, dominated on the ground in the 38-point second quarter. They gained 160 yards on 19 carries with two touchdowns. A Michael Hunnicutt 30-yard field goal with 2 seconds left gave OU a 24-21 halftime lead. Brennan Clay gained 160 of those yards, and he finished with a career-high 192 yards. - The Sports Xchange
11/23/13 - Brennan Clay ran for a career-high 200 yards and two touchdowns, leading No. 22 Oklahoma to a 41-31 victory over Kansas State on Saturday and moving Sooners coach Bob Stoops past Barry Switzer for the most wins in school history. It was the 157th victory at Oklahoma for Stoops, and it came against his former mentor. Stoops was a defensive assistant under Kansas State coach Bill Snyder from 1989-95.
Freshman Trevor Knight, filling in for the injured Blake Bell, threw for 171 yards and accounted for two TDs for the Sooners (9-2, 6-2 Big 12). He made do without running back Damien Williams and wide receiver Lacoltan Bester, who were reportedly suspended earlier in the week. Tyler Lockett had 12 catches for a school-record 278 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas State (6-5, 4-4), which had its four-game win streak end. - AP Sports
10/06/13 - Having broken free into the TCU secondary, Brennan Clay took a glance at one of the big screens atop Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, just to see if anybody might catch him. No one did and Clay finished off a 76-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter, providing the necessary cushion for No. 11 Oklahoma in a 20-17 win over TCU on Saturday night. Trey Millard had a touchdown run for the Sooners and Michael Hunnicutt hit field goals of 39 and 32 yards. Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) and Texas will meet next Saturday in the annual Red River Rivalry in Dallas with first place in the conference on the line. "We set it up the whole day," Clay said of his long run. "The (linebackers) were going over the top and the o-line did a great job just pressing the play and I was fortunate enough to make the cut backdoor and the safety was a little flat-footed. I made a stutter step and just took it to the crib."
There was "not a doubt in my mind once I made that cut. There was no looking back. I just opened up that stride." Clay's run ended up being necessary despite a strong defensive showing by the Sooners. Oklahoma opened with seven straight defensive 3-and-outs, after finishing a 35-21 win at Notre Dame last Saturday with three. The 10 straight 3-and-outs was the longest such streak recorded by the Sooners since at least the 2003 season. - AP Sports
09/11/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: RB Brennan Clay will be a key with the pulled-back passing game. After a career-best 170 yards against West Virginia, he won't sneak up on anybody. The Sooners are averaging more than 300 yards per game on the ground, and Clay has established himself as the beast in the backfield. - The Sports Xchange
09/11/13 - Scouting the Oklahoma running game: A solid running game has been the biggest reason the Sooners have started 2-0. They have rushed for 621 yards in their first two games. The 310.5 yards per game rank sixth among FBS teams. Brennan Clay leads the Sooners with 213 yards, with 170 of them coming in the last game against West Virginia. - The Sports Xchange
