Several OU fans stood and watched Malcolm Kelly as he walked to the Oklahoma locker room, one of the last Oklahoma players off the field after Saturday's loss to Colorado.
At least those fans had proof that their star junior receiver was there Saturday.
For just the second time in the last 26 games, Kelly was held without a catch. It last happened in January's Fiesta Bowl, when he left the game in the first half with a knee injury.
"Colorado did a good job of covering him up,” OU quarterback Sam Bradford said. "Anytime we have a chance to throw to him one-on-one, we take it, but we didn't get that chance (Saturday).”
After scoring seven touchdowns on just 14 catches in OU's first three games, Kelly is beginning to face more and more double coverage.
"The opportunity was there,” Kelly said. "I guess that's just the way the dice rolled. I can't change it.”
