(Norman-AP) -- Could this year's Heisman trophy go to Oklahoma senior linebacker Rocky Calmus?

The possibility was broached on Saturday early in the telecast of Oklahoma's game against Air Force. Announcer Brent Musburger asked why shouldn't Calmus be considered for the Heisman.

He'll get no argument from Sooner head coach Bob Stoops.

Stoops says Calmus hasn't done anything to hurt his chances. He says Calmus has been exceptional.

Through two games, Calmus has 21 tackles, 12 of them unassisted, and has recovered two fumbles, one of which he returned for a touchdown. He also has an interception that he returned 33 yards.

The last Oklahoma defensive player to get Heisman recognition was linebacker Brian Bosworth, who finished fourth in 1986.
