A Back-to-Back MVP?

Oklahoma's Future Sooners are either into the playoffs or finished their final week of the regular season and as such we've got to break down some of the biggest games of the year. Whether it was big offensive linemen dominating their opponents or one of the Sooners more dynamic commitments having a big day, or even last week's MVP, Trevon West, catching a massive game-winning pass to cement a huge district win for Arlington Lamar, this week's MVP was yet another tough pick.
