Case McCoy Hit By Eric Striker: Texas Quarterback Gets Flipped By Oklahoma Linebacker (GIF)


Oklahoma linebacker Eric Striker wasted no time bringing some intensity to the Red River Rivalry on Saturday when he blitzed Texas quarterback Case McCoy in the first quarter.

On the Longhorns' second possession of the game, nobody blocked the Sooners sophomore as he hit McCoy up high just as he threw a pass. McCoy was flipped over backwards before he hit the ground.

Somehow, McCoy was able to get back to his feet and stay in the game. Striker was called for a personal foul on the play.

UPDATE: Not only did McCoy stay in the game, he ended up completing 13 of 21 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns. Texas went on to upset No. 12 Oklahoma 36-20.
