Baylor Bears defensive end Shawn Oakman has turned plenty of heads this college football season, coming in at 6'9" and 280 pounds. As his team faced the Michigan State Spartans on the national stage Thursday, he attracted even more attention.
A picture surfaced on Twitter of Oakman on the giant video boards at AT&T Stadium, with the 22-year-old towering over his opponents. Not surprisingly, the picture of Oakman quickly started to spread, and now the junior defensive end has become a new Internet meme.
