This is true: The Cowboys’ crazy overtime win in Bedlam overshadowed a stellar performance from Phillips. The true freshman played the majority of the game, finishing with 10 tackles including seven solo stops in the most significant action of his debut season. (ESPN)

With Rudolph effectively entrenched as the new starter, the Cactus Bowl against Washington will be an opportunity to finish on a high note, chalk up the losing streak as a temporary spasm, and hit 2015 looking like an outfit T.
