College football scores, NCAA top 25 rankings, Week 2: Texas’ Ehlinger, Oklahoma’s Rattler dominant in wins
The Big 12 began the day with an awful showing as Iowa State and Kansas State each lost at home to Sun Belt foes. But the league’s powers brought plenty of force later in the day as Oklahoma and Texas both cruised to easy wins. The Sooners jumped out to a 31-0 first quarter lead over Missouri State and glided to a 48-0 victory, while Texas scored on its first offensive play en route to a 59-3 win over UTEP.
Both programs have league title and College Football Playoff aspirations behind quarterbacks who are expected to have big seasons, and both delivered impressive opening performances. Oklahoma’s Spencer Rattler completed 14-of-17 passes for 291 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions while playing only two quarters in his first start for the Sooners. Not to be outdone, Texas’ Sam Ehlinger threw for 429 yards and five touchdowns … in one half.
