- There seems to be a difference of opinion about how to defend Ashlan Davis, Tulsa's amazing junior who last week against SMU became the first player in NCAA history to return kickoffs for touchdowns in four straight games.

Rice tried to kick away from Davis, but he still grabbed one kick and returned it 83 yards to the end zone.
