Oklahoma wins but lose Peterson for the season.

Oklahoma beat Iowa State 34-9, but they lost their offensive juggernaunt, Adrian Peterson for the rest of the season.

Peterson broke his collarbone on a dive into the end zone Saturday, and will miss the rest of the regular season. Peterson is a top Heisman hopeful and currently 4th leading rusher in the Oklahoma history.

Peterson ran for 183 yards, 2TDs and even caught 3 passes for 48 yards.

"My goals when I got here were to win a national championship first and then have an opportunity to win the Heisman, Peterson told The Oklahoman in September. "Those are the things I want to do, but the only thing right now I know fro a fact that would keep me [at Oklahoma] next year is a major injury. God willing, that won't happen."

Well his broken collarbone isn't a "major injury" but we will have to wait and see how it affects Peterson's draft status for April's NFL Draft. So far Adrian Peterson is projected to be a top 5 pick.
