Jalen Saunders stood on the Cowboys Stadium field Sunday and called the opportunity to play on it this week a “blessing.”

“It's something you dream of,” Saunders said. “Playing in the Cotton Bowl here ... this is amazing.

“I'm just really blessed to play in this game.”

The junior receiver spent nearly all of December unsure if he'd join his Oklahoma teammates Friday, when the Sooners meet Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.

Asked when he found out he would play, Saunders responded, “When you guys found out.” (The Oklahoman)
