"We're looking at him as kind of a slot and tight end type of guy," Art Briles said of 390-pound LaQuan McGowan, the offensive lineman who scored a surprise touchdown in the Cotton Bowl.
"He can certainly help us in the run game in those situations. The way we're looking at it is we've got three games in non-conference to kind of feel it out and see what he can do and teach him what to do in live action."

LaQuan McGowan has been wearing #80 in practices and working at TE position. Guess Cotton Bowl was just a preview.— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) March 3, 2015
Briles on McGowan at TE: Hardest thing is practicing with him because we don't want to get anyone injured. He's just a different cat.— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) March 3, 2015
