Oklahoma is Preparing for a Healthy Dose of Xavier Hutchinson From Iowa State

NORMAN — Iowa State’s defense isn’t the only unit with All-Conference talent.

Wide receiver Xavier Hutchinson, already a two-time All-Big 12 selection by the coaches, is putting together another outstanding season.

Seven games in, Hutchinson has hauled in 67 catches for 758 and five touchdowns as he’s helped ease new quarterback Hunter Dekkers into his starting role.

The Sooners are no strangers to Hutchinson.

In OU’s three previous meetings agains the Cyclones, Hutchinson has caught 20 passes for 245 yards and two scores.

“I think he’s a great player,” OU cornerback Woodi Washington said. “I know they’re gonna try to get him the ball.”

Already this season, Washington and the Sooner secondary have faced off against explosive receivers.
