Second punch has landed

SAN ANTONIO - We'll have to wait to see if the national voters take notice of Oklahoma linebacker Curtis Lofton. Assuming they're watching this game and not the one in Morgantown, W.V., they very well might, because Lofton just made another play.

Chase Daniel's pass deflected off the fingers of tight end Martin Rucker and Lofton was there to grab it and bring it back 26 yards to the Tiger 7. Two plays later, Sam Bradford found Jermaine Gresham and the Sooners lead 28-14 still 2:32 before the onset of the fourth quarter.

To go with the interception, Lofton already has seven tackles, two for losses. He was recently named Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, yet entered the season with very little fanfare. His actual production is beyond that of former Sooner Butkus award winners Rocky Calmus and Teddy Lehman. And now, with a national stage, he's delivering again.
