While Bob Stoops has enjoyed great play on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball, the same can't be said for the return game.
The team's leading kickoff returner Trey Franks is averaging 23 yards a return this year, but the team is only averaging 19.2 yards and has yet to bring back a touchdown.
Obviously, the Sooners have been able to play well without great field position off of opponent scores, but it would be very helpful if Franks could start them closer to pay dirt.
On the other side of the return game, Ryan Broyles is only averaging 9.85 yards per return and has yet to break one for a score.
The special teams coach might think about taking him off of punt return duty to focus on his other more important position.
If Broyles comes off and just plays wide receiver I'm not sure who would step into his place, but someone electric needs to be back there making things happen.
The Sooners haven't had a problem starting from further back in their own half so far this year. However, they may need all the help they can get as they move into the real meat of their schedule.
Someone like Franks needs to give the offense a smaller playing field and then they can score even easier.
