Three questions with Oklahoma running back DeMarco Murray:

How satisfying was it to pound out two first downs late to seal the win?

That was huge. We knew we had to help the defense out and keep their offense off the field. They're a tough offense with a lot of mis-directions. We knew if we could get a couple of first downs we could ice the game.

What are your feelings on posting another 100-yard rushing game?

It was a good day for me. I prepared this week really hard. We got the running game going very early. That's what it takes sometimes when we have to be that physical. We knew they were coming in with a great team and a great defense.

Are you enjoying occasionally lining up in the slot?

I love playing out at receiver. It's different. But I love being out in the space and making plays... (One advantage) is I'm not getting pounded. I'm out there with those little DBs. I can take their hits all day.
