OU football: Sooners defensive players watched Patriots' 28-3 Super Bowl comeback before playing Baylor

WACO — The No. 10 Oklahoma's defensive coaching staff made them watch clips from the New England Patriots come back against the Atlanta Falcons in the 2017 Super Bowl when the Patriots were down 28-3, the week leading up to their matchup against No. 13 Baylor. “We were just talking about it this week," senior cornerback Parnell Motley said. “We watched the Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons clip when they were up 28-3. It's crazy how the Patriots responded.” The story is ironic, because the Sooners were faced with a 28-3 deficit while playing Baylor and they also came back to win. A feat that is not accomplished in football very often, as this was the Sooners' largest comeback win in school history.
