Here are the top plays from Saturday’s Week 3 slate.
Let the games begin!
Is there a better entrance in all of college football than when the Cornhuskers take the field at Memorial Stadium? One word … electric!
Ring. Ring. Who’s there?
It’s Nebraska junior Trey Palmer, and he’s got reservations for SIX. The junior wide receiver ran a perfect route and Cornhuskers QB Casey Thompson put the biscuit in the basket to give Nebraska a 7-0 lead.
Dillon Gabriel showing off the wheels
Nebraska struck first, but it didn’t take long for the Sooners to answer right back. Gabriel stepped up in the pocket, kept it himself and took it 61 yards to the house.
Oklahoma wasted little time putting more points on the board after its first score. The Sooners utilized a quick-tempo offense to exhaust Nebraska’s D and find the end zone courtesy of a pretty dime form Gabriel to Jalil Farooq, who lifted a silencing finger to his mouth in celebration.
This isn’t the traditional way we see teams score touchdowns, but Oklahoma’s having itself an extraordinary party on the road. Gabriel threw a screen pass to tight end Brayden Willis, who then threw a perfect 24-yard strike to a wide open Marcus Majors for the score.
Right up the GUT!
Baylor running back Richard Reece took the handoff and went right up the middle, untouched for a 14-yard score to give the Bears an early 7-0 lead.
Walking the tightrope
Baylor doubled its lead early in the second quarter as running back Craig Williams took the handoff and turned on the jets, taking it 30 yards for the score. Williams did an impressive down of staying in bounds as his run gave the Bears a 14-0 lead.
