OU defensive coordinator Brent Venables considers a big play to be any run of 15 yards or pass of 25 or more surrendered by his defense. Opponents have gashed the OU defense for 20 of those big plays the last three weeks.
Tallying up the damage:
Comment: Take out Mardy Gilyard’s 57-yard screen pass, and OU’s defense gives up just 269 yards and 14 points.
Comment: UW had three long runs, but on the first Jake Locker was stripped of the ball.
