OKO­RONKWO GETS IN­VOLVED AGAIN

The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - OSU POSTGAME - RYAN ABER, STAFF WRITER

Af­ter los­ing Matt Ro­mar early in the game and start­ing safety Will John­son out, the Soon­ers could hardly af­ford to have an­other key de­fen­sive player hurt.

In the sec­ond half, the sta­dium got quiet when de­fen­sive end/line­backer Og­bon­nia Oko­ronkwo stayed on the ground af­ter a play and had to be tended to by train­ers.

It didn’t take long, though, for Oko­ronkwo to show he was fine. Shortly af­ter his re­turn, he sacked Johnathan Brant­ley and knocked the ball loose. Tulane re­cov­ered the fum­ble but the play still forced a Green Wave punt with Ok­la­homa al­ready ahead 35-14.
