Oklahoma surprised Florida State a few weeks back by swinging to a three-man front. Saturday, the Sooners inserted a wrinkle versus Texas, going back to a four-man line, featuring run-stopping end David King, end Frank Alexander and tackles Casey Walker and Jamarkus McFarland. The shift to a 4-3 brought outside linebacker Corey Nelson into the starting lineup; nickelback Tony Jefferson moved to back safety, and Javon Harris went to the sideline.

In obvious passing situations, Harris and end Ronnell Lewis replaced one of the tackles and Nelson.

The Longhorns went into the game hoping to pound the ball with freshman running back Malcolm Brown. But against OU’s 4-3 base defense, Brown found little running room and averaged just 3.2 yards on 17 carries.
