Tale Of The Tape: #7 Oklahoma At UTEP
|“Big Game” Bob Stoops has gotten some of his mojo back, winning his last three bowl games, one of them the 2010 Fiesta Bowl.||Coaching||Mike Price has been at UTEP since 2004, and the results have been mixed. After consecutive 8-4 seasons to start his tenure, Price hasn’t had a winning record since.|
|Landry Jones is a Heisman contender despite losing some of his favorite targets. He still has Kenny Stills, who caught eight touchdowns last season.||Offense||The injury-prone Nick Lamaison will have to stay healthy if the Miners’ offense is to succeed. Against a hungry Oklahoma defense, though, even that won’t be enough.|
|Mike Stoops, the head coach’s younger brother, is back as the defensive coordinator in Norman after a rocky eight-year tenure as Arizona’s head coach. That is good news for a unit that was torched against the elite Big 12 offenses last year.||Defense||The UTEP defense ranked 104th last season and a matchup with Oklahoma spells disaster.|
|The Sooners are solid in all phases of the kicking game, returning a placekicker who hit 21 of 24 field goals last year.||Special Teams||UTEP’s kicking game was suspect last year and will need to improve. The kicking battle is still up for grabs.|
