MANNY DIAZ: D
The La Tech defensive coordinator has got to be happy to have OU in the rearview mirror. His defense gave up 48 points and 436 yards Saturday night — but that’s nothing new for Diaz. In two games against OU when he was at Texas, his Longhorn defenses gave up 55 points and 63 points against the Sooners.
SWITZER’S SPRYNESS: A
At the start of the fourth quarter, a hype video of Barry Switzer ran on the jumbotrons. Then the legendary Sooner coach came running out of the northwest tunnel. For a guy who’s 76 years old and has had his share of surgeries, he was moving pretty good. The whole production was kinda goofy, but gotta give it up to Switzer’s foot speed.
