ESPN.COM Offensive playmakers shine in Week 9Posted: October 30, 2006
Stock Up, our boy Allen Patrick
Allen Patrick, RB, Oklahoma
Patrick had 43 career carries prior to the collarbone injury suffered by star running back Adrian Peterson. In two games as Peterson’s replacement, the 195-pound junior has totaled an astounding 71 carries for 272 yards in victories over Colorado and Missouri. Patrick’s tough north-south running style played a significant role in wearing down the Tigers’ undersized defense on Saturday in arguably the Sooners’ biggest win of the 2006 season.
