He's jumping over everybody.
“He's an athlete,” Stoops said later about Millard. “My man.”
Aaron Colvin is trying to start a movement — the Colvin Island movement.
For the second time in two weeks, Colvin intercepted a pass. The score was 27-2 in the second quarter. Oklahoma had just allowed Texas' its first first down of the game.
“I was kind of frustrated he got that deep ball on me,” Colvin said. “So the next play I told myself you got to make up for that and you've got to make a play.”
Colvin saw Texas' Marquis Goodwin start to run an over route. He thought Texas quarterback David Ash would throw a little deep. Goodwin is a fast player and Colvin figured Ash would make use of Goodwin's speed.
That's when Colvin saw that short pass.
“I just undercut him and used my speed and went to go get the ball,” Colvin said.
The interception is only Colvin's second in his career, but he's started to distinguish himself among fans and the media as one of the best cornerback in the Big 12.
That's what happens when a cornerback creates his own island.
“That's what I take pride on,” Colvin said. “I don't want anybody catching me when they come out to my side. I want them to feel like they're deserted out there.”
Blake Bell belldozed Bevo.
After mass confusion led to offensive lineman running on and off and on the field again again, leading to an Oklahoma time-out, the Sooners ran with half of the correct package.
They eventually made it to the goal line where Bell scored his first of four rushing touchdowns.
The back-up quarterback ended the game with 11 rushes for 31 yards and the four scores.
David King and the defense worked on Texas' “jumbo formation” during practice on Wednesday and Thursday.
The extra work was evident when Texas running back Joe Bergeron tried to run it from the Longhorns' one-yard line.
King said he doesn't know how, but linebacker Jaydan Bird slipped through a hole and made the tackle before a gang of tackles took him down for a team safety to put OU up 29-2.
“It was in their end zone so it was like telling all their fans, ‘Yeah we came to play today,'” King said of the safety. “They're a good team but it was the OU game today.”
