Curtis Lofton Q&A: Texas A&M
The Sooners get ready to face their first real smash-mouth opponent of Big 12 play when they take on Texas A&M this Saturday on Owen Field. One of the best players on the OU roster capable of taking care of an opposing running game is none other than Curtis Lofton.
Lofton has been making waves all season with his play in any condition. Against the wide-open passing attack of Missouri, Lofton logged 18 tackles. How many tackles can he put up against the option-style offense led by running backs Mike Goodson and Javorskie Lane?
SoonerScoop.com Editor Carey Murdock caught up with Lofton to talk about taking on the Aggies this Saturday.
SoonerScoop.com: You guys face so many spread and passing offenses nowadays. Is it kind of nice to be back playing in your type of game where you face a team that is predominantly a running team?
Curtis Lofton: I wouldn't say it's my type of game. I'm just trying to get to the ball and they run a lot of option and they run a lot of plays that make you think.
My preparation during the week has to be pretty good so I know where to get to the ball and what gap I'm supposed to fit in. By doing that, it should help me hopefully pass 18 tackles.
