Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Rattler may have seen his starting job go up in smoke on Saturday against Texas. With Rattler in charge, OU fell into a 28-7 hole, and that’s when Lincoln Riley turned to true freshman Caleb Williams.
Then in the second quarter, Williams took the field and ripped off an impressive 66-yard rushing touchdown to make it a 28-14 play. The play gave Oklahoma life in the Red River Rivalry and every player and fan was fired up, except for Rattler. He didn’t even celebrate or high-five his teammate.
That’s brutal. It’s also why Rattler has become a fairly unlikeable player across college football. The Sooners went on to win the game 55-48, and now the question for Lincoln Riley is: Will Caleb Williams start next week against the TCU Horned Frogs? I’m not sure how he can’t, but we will see.
