Colorado TB Chris Brown
Oklahoma MLB Lance Mitchell
Brown has become the Diana Ross of the Buffaloes' supreme trio of tailbacks, which includes Bobby Purify and the injured Marcus Houston. A 6'3", 220-pound junior, Brown leads the nation in rushing, with 162.9 yards per game on a workhorse average of 24 carries. The 6'3", 245-pound Mitchell, a junior who transferred to Norman in December 2001, has made a seamless transition from City College of San Francisco. In the win over Texas he had a team-high II tackles as the Sooners held Cedric Benson to 54 rushing yards.
