Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray may not have started Saturday's game against the Baylor Bears, but by the time the contest was over, he had made history.
Murray was benched for the opening series after reportedly showing up late to a practice during the week, according to ESPN.com's Jake Trotter. Backup Austin Kendall started the game for Oklahoma.
When Murray did step onto the field, though, he was nearly unstoppable. The redshirt junior completed 17 of his 21 pass attempts for 432 yards, six touchdowns and zero interceptions, adding 45 rushing yards and a score on the ground as well.
