Oklahoma Sooners players have a ‘what did the fox say’ moment

Lincoln Riley-coached Oklahoma Sooners went up against the Texas Longhorns on Saturday at the Cotton Bowl as part of their NCAA schedule. The Sooners are without a loss this season with a 5-0 record. In contrast, the Longhorns have lost one game thus far and have a 4-1 record in 2021.

But one of the highlights of the game came early during the day. A wild fox entered the field on Saturday which left the crowd in splits ahead of kickoff.

The game is turned out to be a close affair. But rather than Spencer, it’s backup QB Caleb Williams is who had a game to remember. The youngster threw for 212 yards with 2 passing touchdowns as the Sooners came from behind to win the Cotton Bowl by a 55-48 margin.
