OU 48, MISSOURI ST. 0, FINAL
Oklahoma was missing numerous players from its roster Saturday, with reports saying more than a dozen Sooners were in quarantine.
But Missouri State was still the more shorthanded team, as new OU quarterback Spencer Rattler put on a show in the season opener.
Before a crowd of 25% stadium capacity due to COVID-19, Rattler was 14-of-17 in the first half for 290 yards and four touchdowns as the Sooners rolled to a 41-0 halftime lead.
Rattler didn't play in the second half.
Charleston Rambo had 73 yards receiving and two touchdowns in the first half, while freshman Marvin Mims added two catches for 69 yards and a touchdown.
The Sooners held Missouri State, under first-year coach Bobby Petrino, to 37 yards in the first half.
