Helmet stickers: Week 9
By Brandon Chatmon
Here are the helmet stickers after Oklahoma’s 38-30 win over Texas Tech:
Receiver Jalen Saunders: The senior speedster finished with six receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns, including a 76-yarder. When OU repeatedly found itself in third-down situations, Saunders stepped up to move the chains with four receptions for 62 yards on third down.
Linebacker Jordan Evans: The true freshman stepped in and stepped up after Frank Shannon, the Sooners' leading tackler, was forced to leave the game due to injury. The Norman, Okla., native had eight tackles and one pass breakup in a game he wasn’t expected to make a major impact in before Shannon’s injury.
Cornerback Aaron Colvin: Even though teams don’t often try to test the senior, Colvin still finds ways to impact the game. His first-quarter interception was a thing of beauty, and he recovered Jace Amaro’s fumble in the second quarter. If that’s not enough he added seven tackles including five solo stops.
