Alex OkaforDefensive end | Texas
In his final game with the Longhorns, Okafor had a career-high 4½ sacks, helping UT rally from a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter of its 31-27 victory over Oregon State in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Longhorns set a school bowl record with 10 sacks, and Okafor's 12½ sacks this season were the most by a UT player since 1984. Okafor and Cedric Reed sacked Cody Vaz on third-and-11 with less than five minutes to play, giving UT the ball for Marquise Goodwin's winning touchdown. "I just kind of got into a zone," Okafor said.
