In last year's Fiesta Bowl, Walker's 33-yard interception for a touchdown gave OU a 35-28 lead over Boise State with a minute left in the fourth quarter. Walker's glory, however, was short-lived. Boise State connected on a hook-and-ladder to send the game into overtime, then converted on two more trick plays to win 43-42. Wednesday, the Sooners will have a chance at redemption against West Virginia in this year's version of the Fiesta Bowl in the final game of Walker's career. "That goes to show you can be on cloud nine and be on the ground in no time,” Walker said. "Football is peaks and valleys.” That may be true, but Walker's four-year career has been as level as the Oklahoma plains. Walker, out of Waco, Texas, has started the last two seasons, but often has been overshadowed in the headlines by others in the defensive backfield like Reggie Smith and D.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — In a flash, cornerback Marcus Walker went from making one of the greatest defensive plays in Oklahoma history to barely making the game's highlights.
