Nations top DT likes OU-Texas battle

Rodrique Wright of Alief (Texas) Hastings doesn't usually talk a whole lot, but had plenty to talk about when it came to the Oklahoma-Texas battle inside the Cotton Bowl on Saturday.
"Man, it was just amazing to see all those people, and all that spirit,” the nation’s top defensive tackle said. “Something always seemed to be happening. The game kept my attention pretty well since it was so good."
Wright, however, said that the outcome really would not effect his decision.
"I was just busy watching the game,” he said. “I mean when Texas' defense was on the field I was watching them, and when Oklahoma's defense I was watching them closely as well."
Wright said he could see himself in either defense, though.
"Both of their lines played really well,” he said. “Just look at the rushing statistics and that makes it obvious.”
Contrary to popular belief it's not down to two teams - yet.
"I still like Texas A&M, LSU, Tennessee and Kansas State as well," he said. "Really, A&M, LSU, OU and UT stand out because they are just closer to home and that's important to me."
