BREAKING Down Eric Ward's 38 Yard TD Reception

The play first starts out with Bradley Marquez up on the top of the screen. There are two backs by Davis Webb---Sadale Foster and Kenny Williams. Jakeem Grant is on the bottom of the screen, along with Eric Ward.

Now, as the play develops, it looks as though they are trying to set up a screen to Sadale Foster on the top of the screen. But Webb is staring down Ward on the bottom of the screen, and with pressure in his face, throws to the wide open Ward.

Now Ward turns upfield. One OKstate defender falls down. Jakeem Grant gets in the way of another OKstate defender. And now there is one more defender for Ward to beat. #63 Oline man sees the defender, and races to block him, while Ward runs right at the defender. #75 Oline man runs ahead to block another unseen defender.

Now, with the combination of Eric Wards juke, and #63 pushing down on the defender, Eric Ward gets by him, and #75 is still running to block another defender (who is the last closest defender to Ward, as Ward outruns the guys behind him)

Now #75 gets his block, which allows Ward to run right by the defender.

And this is a clear path for Ward. Straight to the endzone. Which results in Brian Jensen's "TOUCHDOWN RED RAIDERS!" And the official doesn't signal right away, so I made him do it, but it more looks like the official is now holding two yellow lightsabers.

This TD gets TTU back in the game. Unfortunately, after halftime, for the rest of the game, things went downhill, and well, we all know.
