Oklahoma Sooners All-American wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has had three of the most ridiculous scampers over opposing defenses this season. In the second quarter of Oklahoma’s 42-41 victory over the Iowa State Cyclones, Lamb catches a two-yard screen from QB Jalen Hurts at the Oklahoma 40-yard line. (Go to 1:06 on the video)
When Lamb catches the pass, there are no defenders around him because the defensive backs must give him space so that they will not be toasted on a deep route. This play should only go for about a 15-yard gain, but Lamb cuts back to the right and scores a touchdown. Watch how eight defenders whiff at tackling him.
The other two times Lamb has broken off a run like this after the catch this season has been against Texas and against Kansas State. CeeDee Lamb has single-handedly proven that good defense is hard to find in the Big XII Conference.
