Oklahoma briefly bench Caleb Williams for Spencer Rattler in Baylor loss

| Local News | Local News

Oklahoma can’t seem to find the answer to the quarterback.

The Sooners started the season with Spencer Rattler, a pre-season favorite for the Heisman Trophy. Then he struggled and they brought in Caleb Williams, a five-star freshman, who inserted his name into the Heisman race with a series of solid performances. On Saturday, the Oklahoma No.8 returned straight to Rattler after Williams battled No.13 Baylor in the third quarter.

Rattler started his afternoon lifting a 50/50 deep ball that wasn’t caught, and came out three in his first practice as Oklahoma continued to follow Baylor 10-7. Baylor scored the next drive to make it a 17-7 game. Rattler lasted two sets, both of which ended in punters, before Oklahoma returned to Williams.

Baylor won the game 27-14, handing the Sooners their first loss of the season and dealing a blow to their hopes of playing in the college football playoffs.

The struggles started in the first half as Williams threw an interception and could only lead Oklahoma with one touchdown. Just before the end of the first half, he also had his pitching hand stomped on after a rushed attempt.

The second half was not much better. Oklahoma’s first half-time practice ended with a broken play and Williams threw an interception as he attempted to throw the ball out of bounds. The next practice, Williams made only one of two passing attempts and was sacked twice, including once for an 11-yard loss on another stalled play that resulted in a 4th and 35 and forced the team on punt.
