It’s been a rough month for Jefferson, who has been hampered by injury. His explosiveness was back against Iowa State as he made 7 tackles in a 26-6 victory.
It wasn’t the number of plays Jefferson made, but how he made them. Most of his stops came on one-on-one situations where Jefferson was able to make the play and stop drives.
Dejuan Miller, WR
When wide receiver Ryan Broyles suffered a season-ending injury, Miller said he wanted to take it upon himself to finish strong. Miller dropped the first pass intended for him but never let another one hit the ground in leading the team with 7 catches for 86 yards.
For Miller, a senior playing his last home game, he said the difference for him would be his practice mentality in the last few weeks of his OU career. Saturday’s performance was a result of that.
Travis Lewis, LB
OU defense was dominant throughout the contest, but Lewis might have had the biggest play with his interception late in the second quarter. It stopped a potential scoring drive for the Cyclones and allowed OU to score on a field goal.
With Lewis’ three tackles, he passed Rocky Calumus for the most career tackles at OU under Coach Bob Stoops. Calmus had 431 stops.
