Oklahoma got a big win on Saturday, knocking off previously unbeaten Texas Tech 38-30, but it was a bittersweet victory.

After the game Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced that Sooners fullback Trey Millard had suffered a torn ACL and another ligament in his knee. Millard will have surgery on the knee in a few weeks and will miss the rest of the season.

Stoops went on to say that the whole team was "crushed by it."

Millard, a senior, has only 91 rushing yards and 64 receiving yards this season, but his value to the team is far greater than his stats show. As a starting fullback since his freshman season in 2010, Millard has been a key component clearing the way for Oklahoma running backs and protecting Sooners quarterbacks.

He won't be easily replaced.
