“Coach (Tim) Kish wants me to play linebacker and Coach Mike Stoops wants me at safety,” Alexander said. “That can fit in perfectly for me. I can play nickelback or if they want to move me up to linebacker and put on some weight, I can do that too.

“It's his first game. I can remember my first game. I made so many mental errors I couldn't even count them on a list. It's just something that happens. He might have gotten excited. It was mostly on check plays. You've got to keep encouraging Ty, but all in all he did a great job for us. He put us in position for us to make some good plays up there.”
