DeMarco Murray 10.02.2010

In the most valuable performance of his four-year career, Murray rushed for 115 yards and two touchdowns, propelling OU to a 28-20 victory Saturday at the Cotton Bowl to end Texas’ stranglehold on the series and keep the Sooners undefeated.

“He’s not Steve Owens right now, but he’s our bell cow” said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson. “He’s great kid, a great player, but he’s matured into a man.

“Landry is the quarterback and the captain, but DeMarco has really been the guy setting the tone, being a leader for us.”

The last two years, the Longhorns kept Murray and the Sooner run game corralled. On OU’s first possession, Murray made it known that wasn’t going to happen again.

“We knew coming into this game, we had to run the ball,” said Murray, who had three rushing yards total the previous two Red River games. “Coach Wilson trusted us with the run game. He told us we were going to run the ball and run it well.”

….Murray broke around the perimeter of a Broyles block, then fell back on his summer yoga instruction, tiptoeing five steps along the sideline before somersaulting into the end zone for a 20-yard score to give the Sooners a 28-10 lead.

“DeMarco can do anything at any moment,” said tackle Eric Mensik. “To see him today do what he did only instilled more confidence in myself and the offensive line for the rest of the season.

“He was special out there today.”
