ON DECK: Williams has another big game
I normally don’t care too much about the Red River Rivalry, as it features two teams I am usually rooting against.
But this year’s Oklahoma-Texas clash caught my eye, as all Sooners games this year have.
Damien Williams — who led Arizona Western to the NJCAA championship game last year — had a 95-yard touchdown, which is the longest in the history of the Texas-Oklahoma rivalry.
Williams has had an up-and-down year. His first two games, he topped 100 yards and had a four-touchdown game against Florida A&M. But before his 167-yard breakout Saturday, he had run for 82 yards total and no scores the last two weeks.
Blake Bell was used in the Sooners’ short yardage situations, scoring four touchdowns. But Williams is providing a speed threat.
The loss against Kansas State will likely keep Williams from playing for a second-straight national championship, but it’s still nice to see the Matadors represented in high-profile places on Saturday.
