No one had a more active start to the game than wide receiver Quentin Chaney. Good and bad. On the opening kickoff, Chaney's personal foul negated some of a 62-yard return by DeMarco Murray.
Then after catching a 7-yard pass to begin OU's next possession, Chaney was flagged for holding, which erased a first-down catch by Juaquin Iglesias. But on the next play, Chaney raced down the middle of the field past the Nebraska secondary and reeled in a 48-yard touchdown reception that put OU up 21-0. Chaney continues to thrive since being inserted into the starting lineup three games ago in place of an injured Manny Johnson. Against Kansas, Kansas State and Nebraska, Chaney has a combined 13 receptions for 288 yards and a touchdown. “He's really coming on, playing better, making an impact,” coach Bob Stoops said. “He's been exciting to watch.”
