Now that we have the “pro-offense bias” taken care of,
we run the danger of now being accused of pro-Sooner
bias, but you have to love a game where one player throws
for 400 yards and 38 completions and loses by 33 points to
his opposite number.
Baylor’s Charlie Brewer was on the downside of
that scenario, as Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray, fresh off a
game being fairly well bottled up by Army, unleashed
six touchdown passes and 432 yards of passing to beat
Brewer and co.
Unlike Brewer, who required 60 attempts to arrive at
32 fewer yards, Murray achieved his 432 on a mere 17
completions, including one 86-yard screen that CeeDee
Lamb took to the house and a 50-yard touchdown bomb
to Marquise Brown.
Did I mention that Murray also ran one in for a score and
had 45 rushing yards?
Did I further mention that Murray did not even start
the game, getting docked the start after arriving late for a
practice? Maybe he should arrive late for practice more often.
So, you can see we have no Sooner bias and don’t even
try to accuse us of Murray bias. This was a game for the
ages by a player following quite nicely in the footsteps of
OU legend Baker Mayfield.
