Oklahoma football: Offensive lineman Nila Kasitati done for season

Kasitati, who was expected to be one of the Sooners' top backups, suffered a torn ACL against Texas Tech.

“That's one of my favorite pictures,” he said with a laugh. “It's fun; I love playing against the crowd and with the crowd.”

Those first two big performances came with Stills playing more as an outside receiver. This year, he's moved inside and is more often a slot receiver.

Stills has been — by far — the Sooners' best receiver this season, leading the team with 29 catches, 344 yards and three scores.

COLVIN ‘COULD PLAY ANYWHERE'

Aaron Colvin, fresh off one of the finer performances of his career in OU's 41-20 win at Texas Tech, “could play anywhere,” Bob Stoops said during his Monday news conference.

The junior cornerback came on a blitz, jumped and intercepted a pass Saturday. He later tipped a ball to Javon Harris, who returned the interception 46 yards for a score.

As a freshman, Colvin played corner but was moved to safety for most of last season.

“He played the whole year a year ago at safety,” Stoops said. “If we played him there, he'd be a great safety, too.

“He could do whatever you need him to do, really. He's got size. He's got great ball skills. And he's tough.”

Colvin said he prefers playing cornerback.

“I think corner is where I excel at,” Colvin said. “I can play both, but I feel very comfortable at corner.”
