Stacked Oklahoma receiver corps has another outstanding game

by Ryan Aber Published: October 8, 2011

Reynolds didn't find the end zone but had 92 receiving yards and three of his six catches converted third downs, including a 30-yard reception on third-and-25 early in the second quarter.

Texas tried to slow down OU's offense with a dizzying array of blitzes and movement up front.

But Jones, when he was pressured, found his receivers quickly or at least avoided bad throws into coverage.

“He got pressured, he got hit and he still made throws,” Texas coach Mack Brown said. “He did a tremendous job. I told him that after the game.”

It was just a matter of giving Jones time, Ikard said.

“There was a couple times when they pressured him and that's on us,” he said. “But when we were solid in pro, you could see that when they're bringing that many guys, it's one-on-one matchups with Ryan and Kenny and Jaz and that's a dangerous thing.

“We were solid in pro and let 12 (Jones) get the ball out of his hand and our big-time players made big-time plays.”
