Oklahoma Football Top Plays Of 2013 | #4 Jalen Saunders Punt Return

New, 7 comments
Richard Rowe-USA TODAY Sports

Up 7-0 the Oklahoma St. Cowboys decided to rely on their defense to get them out of the first quarter with a lead. Pinned deep in their own territory, Kip Smith punted the ball 49 yards. What happened next was not impossible but likely unexpected from fans in the stadium...

In wide open space, Jalen Saunders fielded the punt and turned his eyes up field. Weaving his way through defenders, Saunders hit the edge as he challenged his opponent to a good old fashioned foot race. In this case, the score was evened up a 7 a piece with seconds left in the quarter as those in attendance, as well as those watching from home, knew they were in for a treat.
