Cornwell's night was full of dropped passes, slams into the turf and passes thrown too far. He did throw a 30-yard touchdown pass to tight end Payton Prince and a 68-yarder to Z'Quan Hogan.
While Parker and Co. flustered Cornwell's offensive line, the Tigers' offensive front keyed a good rushing attack. Norman quarterback Jakcob Dean ran 21 times for 63 yards. Running back Darius Manning scored three touchdowns in the second half, including a 72-yard sweep down the right sideline.
“We knew ever since his freshman year he would be a star,” Dean said. “We always knew, but nobody else really knew because he didn't play last year. Tonight, he exploded. That's exactly what we expected.”
