The emerging Sheldon Price

A year ago sophomore cornerback Sheldon Price was rushed into duty as a true freshman due to injuries. The opposition made him a marked man, exploited his inexperience and his slight frame, but to his credit, Price kept battling.

For the game, Price accounted for six tackles, four of them solo and one pass deflection, but that doesn't tell the full story. Three of those solo tackles were indeed solo because he was pretty much alone and if he would have missed, Texas would go for a first down, if not a long gain.
