ARLINGTON (AP) – DeMarco Murray and Sam Bradford were college teammates at Oklahoma who have had some similarities in the NFL.

Both had standout rookie seasons, though a year apart. Running back Murray played his first NFL games last season for the Dallas Cowboys, after St. Louis Rams quarterback Bradford’s impressive debut as the NFL’s offensive rookie of the year in 2010. There were also the ankle injuries that hampered both last season.

They will play in the same game for the first time since their days with the Sooners in a preseason game Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium.

Bradford was hurt when the Rams played there last October, on the day Murray got his first start and set a Cowboys single-game record with 253 yards rushing in a 34-7 victory.
