Oklahoma wide receiver Jalen Saunders has become a playmaker for the Sooners late in the season.

Saunders returned two punts for touchdowns late in the year, one against Iowa State and one against Oklahoma State, both of them were sparks for the Sooners, who had struggled on offense up to that point in those respective games.

He might be the player to watch for the Sooners when they meet Alabama in the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Thursday night.
