Granted, I took Texas and the points, and after the Longhorns jumped out to that 28-7 lead, it looked like it was in the bag. Well, it wasn’t…
To start the second quarter, Oklahoma starting quarterback Spencer Rattler found himself riding the pine pony, with Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley handing freshman quarterback Caleb Williams the reins.
Williams was largely touted as the best quarterback in the freshman class, but Rattler started the season as a Heisman candidate. A bold move? You could say so…
But this is the Red River Shootout… go big or go home.
And Williams went BIG.
With 3 touchdowns and 300 yards, Williams led the Sooners on the largest comeback in Red River Classic history, winning the game 55-48 on a walk off touchdown.
Caleb Williams took over vs. Texas in place of Spencer Rattler:
Williams: 16-25, 300 total YDS, 3 total TDs Rattler: 8-15, 102 total YDs, 1 TD
