Locker just took over in the second quarter, expecially running. For those 15 minutes, at least, he was everything he was billed to be. He was dangerous enough to change the Syracuse defense, as they kept a player spying on him and even that couldn’t slow him.
However, it’s a game of adjustments, and it’s clear that SU coach Greg Robinson had to halftime task more important that finding a way to slow Locker. It will be interesting to see what he came up with, and interesting then to see what UW/Willingham/Locker do to answer the Orange changes.
The defense has looked solid.
Also, we finally got the answer to a few of those lingering camp questions. Ben Ossai started at left tackle. Vonzell McDowell has been impressive at corner. Nate Williams is playing as the nickle back (and broke up a would-be touchdown on Syracuse’s final drive.
A few stats: Locker eight carries for 67 yards. Ranking nine for 57. Locker passing: 7-of-11 for 47 tards. Receiving: Reece, Rankin and Russo two catches each. Tackles: Mesphin Forrester, five.
