POSTGAME POD: Murray keeps coming on, defense concerns
AMES, Iowa - The guys go mobile for the first time from Iowa. The Eskridge Lexus Postgame Podcast comes to you from Iowa just after OU leaves with a 37-27 victory over Iowa State at Jack Trice Stadium. The guys break down everything, from the shoddy tackling on defense, the Jekyll and Hyde day from Parnell Motley, we give out our Eskridge Lexus Player of the game, our Coop Ale Works Play of the Game and our full stock report from Kyle McCord at AMC Mortgage.
Kyler Murray had all kinds of national recognition last week, but we thought he had an even better day Saturday. The OU run game is still finding it's legs as Trey Sermon took the bulk of the snaps today. We break down more on the defense, the big plays on both sides of the ball, Marquise Brown's incredible day and most importantly a win on the road against a team that beat you a year ago.It's not all candy and rainbows, we talk about the issues we're seeing as well.
