Game Grades: Oklahoma 42, Baylor 34

Player/Group Grade Evaluation
 Quarterbacks B Nothing too special from Jones. It wasn’t a bad day, but he could have had a career day with Baylor’s dismal defense. Also, Jones’ one interception could have led to an OU collapse. However, the Sooners held on. And as for Blake Bell, a 55-yard TD run was big in the fourth quarter to ultimately put away the game.
Running backs A- Damien Williams is back y’all. 99 yards and two touchdowns on the ground in a huge bounce back game for no. 26. Brennan Clay was, also, very effective with a touchdown reception and on the ground. Trey Millard didn’t do much running the ball, but was a solid contributor to the passing game.
Wide receivers A Another great showing from this group. Justin Brown had a phenomenal day with a big touchdown reception. Jalen Saunders had a few great grabs. Shepard nearly could have a TD, though, Sterling and Kenny Stills did not rack up the receiving yards like usual. Though, there was a Trey Metoyer sighting, who made a big catch to move the chains. Excited to see what this group can do against West Virginia.
Run defense C- Baylor absolutely tore it up on the ground. OU allowed four rushing touchdowns, three via Lache Seastrunk. OU struggled to really ever contain the run game, as they picked up big gains frequently. In particular, Nick Florence took off with the ball several times, which is worrisome with the Sooners facing Geno Smith this weekend.
Pass defense B+ Dropped passes were killer for Baylor receivers. OU’s secondary let up some big receptions, specifically Terrance Williams. However, Nick Florence and the Baylor offense, who are leading the country in passing yards, were held to 172 passing yards and zero touchdowns.
Special Teams B Some quality returns from Brennan Clay and Roy Finch. However, not much going elsewhere. Hunnicutt was never called on for a field goal. Though, he was perfect on PATs. Justin Brown didn’t get much room to work with, but his performance as a receiver more than made up for his less-than-spectacular showing returning punts.
