Superlatives from the Texas Game



Winner: The defense. As Mark Cooper noted, Texas’ offense struggled mightily against Glenn Spencer in the second half: 25 plays, 48 yards. Jerrod Heard accounted for 35 yards passing and 8 yards rushing in the second half.

Loser: Texas’ special teams.

MVP: Jordan Sterns. I could easily throw him in here just about every week. He’s not usually flashy, but he’s all over the field and has the best range of any safety Oklahoma State has had since I’m able to remember. Saturday, he brought the boom.

Player who stepped up: Jarrell Owens. After Ogbah lost his helmet and was forced to the sidelines to watch as Texas went for a fourth down conversation, Owens not only held his own, but sacked Jerrod Heard on a critical defensive stop.

Best play:

Worst play: This wasn’t real ideal.

OK, we’ll take it play: This one.

Hustle play of the game: Miketavious Jones has come to ball the past two games. He forced a turnover last week early in the game, and wrestled down Jerrod Heard in a huge defensive stop Saturday.

Quote of the game: “I loved the way it ended.” – Glenn Spencer

Best catch: ATEMAN.
