Brown makes clutch play in mom’s memory
NORMAN — Seconds before he put Bedlam to bed, Tre Brown was talking to his mom.
Lined up against Oklahoma State’s go-to wide receiver Tylan Wallace, the Sooners sophomore cornerback from Tulsa needed strength and encouragement to seal an OU victory.
“Before the play, I talked to my mom,” said Brown, whose mother, Beverly Brewer passed away last month. “My faith is really high and there’s a reason for everything, but I had to talk to her.”
Brown’s mother gave the former Union standout the strength and discernment needed to break up the Cowboys’ 2-point conversion pass intended for Wallace which sealed a dramatic 48-47 win for sixth-ranked Oklahoma (9-1, 6-1 Big 12) over rival Oklahoma State (5-5, 2-5) in a Bedlam barn burner on Saturday.
