1. Oklahoma 66, Baylor 33
Just imagine if Kyler Murray started.
Disciplined for being late for a meeting, Murray didn’t get the start against Baylor, with Austin Kendall getting the call. Kendall missed his first two passes, Murray stepped back in, and …
Murray was fantastic, completing 17-of-21 passes for 432 yards and six touchdowns, and he even took off for 45 yards and a score.
Kennedy Brooks took off for two touchdown runs, Hollywood Brown went off for 132 yards, CeeDee Lamb roared for an 86-yard touchdown, and everything else clicked in a breathtaking offensive performance.
OU didn’t stop.
Baylor had something to do with that, scoring 24 second half points and forcing the Sooners to keep trying, but after struggling a bit against Iowa State and Army, this is exactly the explosion the Sooners needed going into the Texas showdown.
Baylor might have gotten its doors blown off, but Charlie Brewer threw for 400 yards, Denzel Mims and Jalen Hurd went off, and the offense showed the pop again. But this was Oklahoma’s day, and there was nothing the Bear D could do to stop it.
With Clemson struggling and Georgia just looking okay, this was the type of game that keeps the Sooners in the mix for College Football Playoff respect.
