(Dallas-AP) -- Now that Oklahoma's season is over, fans are wondering if Roy Williams will return next season.

Williams is a junior, but he's certain to be taken early in the NFL draft should he chose to leave this year. If Williams has played his last game for OU, he went out in style.

Williams was named the defensive MVP of the Cotton Bowl, which OU won 10-to-3 over Arkansas.

Williams says he hasn't made up his mind about whether he's turning pro. OU fans tried to sway him by chanting ``one more year'' as the Cotton Bowl wound down.

Williams says the recognition is flattering but he hopes the fans realize he isn't the only reason OU defense was so dominating this year. He says the Sooner defense is a special group of players and is good because they work well as a team.
