Sporterberg: Big 12 goes 4-5-2 against COVID-19 in week one of college football

By Matthew Soderberg | News Editor

The Big 12 chose to push on through the pandemic, but after this weekend, I think they might regret it. Let’s call it COVID-19: 5, Big 12: 4, with two draws.

The Four Wins

No one should be surprised by No. 3 Oklahoma’s 48-0 rout of Missouri State. Quarterback Spencer Rattler was impressive in his debut for the Sooners, throwing for 290 yards on 17 attempts with four touchdowns.

Unranked West Virginia lit up Eastern Kentucky for its first win of the season. With a score of 56-10, junior quarterback Jarret Doege threw for 228 yards and three touchdowns while running back Alec Sinkfield rushed 15 times for 123 yards and two more scores.
