If there’s one game every year that’s a strong bet to be the most entertaining of the college football season, the Red River Showdown between Oklahoma and Texas can make as strong a case as any.
Saturday’s installment was further proof, as Oklahoma overcame a 21-point deficit to complete an epic 55-48 comeback win over the Longhorns.
While the biggest story of the day was the benching of Oklahoma starting quarterback Spencer Rattler, Sooners running back Kennedy Brooks stole the show for all the right reasons.
Brooks finished off an incredible performance with a game-winning 33-yard touchdown run in the final seconds, finishing the day with 217 yards and two touchdowns on just 25 carries.
The 2022 NFL draft class might be every bit as wide open at running back as it is at quarterback, and Brooks’ performance Saturday reminded pro scouts what he’s capable of on the biggest stage.
