Even something as simple as a botched two-point conversion went the other way when Robinson’s fumble was scooped up by OU defensive end Frank Alexander and returned for two points.

“I thought he played with a lot of guts,” co-offensive coordinator Gunter Brewer said of his quarterback. “There are things he does that people don’t get to see every day in practice — his athletic ability. He runs the ball extremely well when he gets the opportunity.

“He had some mistakes, but that’s because he was trying to make plays. We knew we had to do that against their defense.”

But he proved time and time again Saturday night just how special he is.
