    I had Tech friend pulling for Oklahoma and even he admitted that was an amazing game. I’m still not sure whether to yell, laugh, or cry. And I love Chubb but sure as hell going to miss Sony. He definitely made up for the fumble.

        Yeah, the offense wasn’t keeping pace at that point and there was no evidence the defense was going to stop them. Even if we kept pace the rest of the game we would have been behind by a couple of scores. The defense was awesome the second half. Not sure what adjustments were made but it worked. Mayfield seem frustrated and confused. I will have to re-watch it to see the details but possibly the DBs got more aggressive at the initial POA on the WRs. They let them run free in the first half. BM didn’t have to squeeze passes into any tight windows to start.
