Toben Opurum, Bradley McDougald top performers against TCU
1. Toben Opurum: Senior defensive end was all over the field and consistently was a disruptive force. Credited with six tackles, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry, Opurum influenced the game more significantly than those impressive numbers show.
2. Bradley McDougald: Had nine solo tackles, three assists, a 12-yard sack and two forced fumbles.
3. Tony Pierson: Showed another dimension, coming out of the backfield to catch six passes for 99 yards.
4. Greg Brown: Lockdown had a huge knockdown of a pass and is having himself a strong senior year. He’s tackling better than in younger years and was in on six tackles.
5. John Williams: A surge up the middle has been a rare thing in recent years, but Williams showed the ability to get it on numerous plays.
6. Josh Williams: Recovered a fumble that advanced the ball 16 yards and showed quickness in running down ballcarriers.
7. Ben Goodman: Reserve defensive end moves well and forever plays the game, never letting himself get lulled into spectator status.
8. Andrew Turzilli: Dropped one ball but also consistently gave Dayne Crist a big target to hit and finished with three receptions for 100 yards.
9. Taylor Cox: Reliable runner doesn’t go down on the first hit and works hard for his yardage. Gained team-best 47 yards on 11 carries.
10. Kevin Young: Not done improving, the defensive tackle has come a long way and made his presence felt.
