Abstract/Description: By his sophomore season, Marlin Briscoe was already being touted as the team's key to victory. "A lot of the fortunes of the 1964 team may depend on the flying feet of soph quarterback Marlin Briscoe. Briscoe amazes you with his speed and deceptiveness and the ability to cut a thousand different ways when cornered. Coaches say he throws the running pass with the best. He's quicker than Carl Meyers but his ability to call the 'right' play and his coolness under fire will be tested Saturday by a big, tough Idaho State line. For sheer running ability, he could develop into the best OU signal caller yet.
