SAUNDERS REMINDED OF 2011 FRESNO WIN
Oklahoma junior receiver Jalen Saunders, who transferred from Fresno State, was asked if he'd ever been part of a game like the Sooners' win Saturday at West Virginia.
“Once, last season against Hawaii,” Saunders said. “It actually did (seem similar) and came down to the last play.”
That game had a lot less scoring than Saturday's shootout in Morgantown; Saunders' Fresno State team won 24-21 at Hawaii, and the decisive Bulldog touchdown was scored early in the fourth quarter.
But there were some similarities. Hawaii was threatening to come back on its final drive, but turned the ball over on downs. Also, Saunders had a 40-yard touchdown reception in the game.
Saturday, he scored his first Oklahoma touchdown on a flashy 76-yard catch-and-run in the second quarter. It was OU's longest pass play of the year.
“This is probably one of the top, wildest games that I've played in,” Saunders said. “It was back-and-forth, like tug of war the whole game.”
