He joined two other Sooners, Baker Mayfield and Landry Jones. Depending on how his career finishes, he has an opportunity to pass Mayfield and Boise State Broncos’ quarterback Kellen Moore to move into No. 7 all-time. Also, last weekend Gabriel accounted for eight touchdowns which broke Mayfield’s single-game touchdown record.
That’s not all Gabriel did this past weekend. Gabriel’s 50 yards rushing put him over 1,000 yards for his career, making him just the second player in NCAA history to throw for more than 14,000 yards and run for 1,000 yards joining Mayfield.

There’s no question it’s been an incredible career for Gabriel, and yet he doesn’t get the recognition he deserves. Many before the season were hoping Jackson Arnold would take over the reins, but Gabriel kept working.
He’s having a career year and a Heisman-type season. If Oklahoma didn’t slip up twice, he’d probably be right in the Heisman race. Also, he led one of the greatest drives in program history to knock off Oklahoma’s biggest rival.
