Oklahoma's Samaje Perine is one of the best running backs in the country. That is not an opinion. It is a fact. Last season, as a freshman, he rushed for 1,713 yards and 21 touchdowns.
So, ESPN bragged about him last night.

Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware had a pretty good response to this.

The Tigers defeated the Sooners, 40-6, in last season's Russell Athletic Bowl.
However...Perine had a decent game. He rushed for 134 yards on 23 carries. Oklahoma's defense did keep him out of the end zone, though.
So, is Boulware's comment fair or not? We're not sure.
