It was over quickly in Bobby Petrino’s debut as the Missouri State head coach.
Missouri State football was on the losing end of a 48-point display by the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday, Sept. 12.
Playing a nationally ranked powerhouse like University of Oklahoma is not a normal event for MSU. The game was a guarantee game with $600,000 dollars attached for MSU athletics.
The Sooners’ freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler led the charge in a lopsided affair. Oklahoma put up 608 yards of offense; the Bears managed 135.
It took until five minutes left in the second quarter for the Bears to collect their first first down on a 20 yard pass from freshman quarterback Jaden Johnson to senior receiver Lorenzo Thomas.
