Wide receivers blocking better
In the run game. And for each other after passes were caught.
“We just challenged them to play Oklahoma football at the snap to the whistle for every minute of the game. For the most part we did that,” said wide receivers coach Jay Norvell. “We did it really well.”
The receivers totaled 21 knockdowns, something Norvell said “is kind of our standard.”
On the bubble screens, the receivers were particularly effective with their blocking. But that wasn’t the only time OU’s receivers made key blocks. On James Hanna’s 46-yard touchdown catch, Cameron Kenney threw a block downfield to clear a seam along the sidelines for Hanna to run through.
“When you are playing with a lot of effort that will show up, so that is the challenge form week-to-week to keep the foot on the accelerator,” Norvell said. “We need to get that kind of energy back this week because Air Force is going to be tough. These guys are an option team so they are used to playing blocks. It’s going to be more of a challenge for us than it was last week on the perimeter.”
