What a day of college football! OU with a comeback for the ages and Alabama fell to unranked Texas A&M.
Let’s get to the OU helmet stickers:
1 Kennedy Brooks with 217 rushing yards and the game winner in the waning seconds. Bijan Robinson wasn’t the best back in this RRR. The best back was Kennedy Brooks.
2 Caleb Williams with an off the bench performance which will go unrivaled in the Sooner history books. Now we know why Spencer Rattlers’ play has been so insecure at times this season. Spencer probably knew from practice what would happen if Caleb Williams got extended playing time in a game.
3 Marvin Mims finally caught a couple of touchdown passes six games into the season. That in itself is a barometer of how much the OU offense had struggled before the Kansas State game.
4 The OU offensive line with a special pat on the shoulder for right tackle Tyrese Robinson who after getting the bad penalty at Manhattan redeemed himself with an excellent performance.
5 Lincoln Riley for not losing his mind when the Sooners got down 28-7, made the QB change, and kept running the football. Note to Mike Gundy: OU finshed with 339 rushing yards exactly six more yards than Arkansas had against the Horns in Fayetville. Is there a chance Lincoln rope a doped Sarkisian’s Horns? Tramel needs to ask this at the Tuesday presser.
6 Caleb Kelly for the great takeaway from Xavier Worthy on the Texas kickoff return. How many remember Caleb’s hit which created a touchdown return in the epic double overtime game to Georgia? Great job, Caleb.
7 Jaden Davis what an irony. He went air on that first play from scrimmage on Worthy’s first touchdown, but made the tackle on the last play of the game when Texas tried to return a kick.
8 The OU Band showed great stamina in that heat in the second half having to play Boomer Sooner after so many clutch scores/plays against the wilting Longhorns.
That’s it. That’s my OU helmet stickers.
They should have a parade in Norman tomorrow.
