On Saturday afternoon, Baylor and Oklahoma took the field for their second contest of the season – except this game had different stakes. After Utah’s loss to Oregon in the Pac-12 title game, the door is wide open for either Baylor or Oklahoma to make the College Football Playoff.
The winner of today’s game will make the playoff, if LSU takes down Georgia in the SEC title game.
With so much on the line, things turned ugly for both the Bears and the Sooners.
Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer was knocked out of the game after a hit from Kenneth Murray.
Not long before that though, it was Brewer himself who took an Oklahoma player out of the game. Brewer trucked defensive back Brendan Radley-Hiles, who was shaken up on the play.
Here’s the play.

Radley-Hiles stay on the sideline, but reports indicated he would come back into the game.
However, a new report suggests Radley-Hiles is done for the day. Oklahoma appears to have taken his helmet away from him – indicating a head injury.

Baylor took advantage of the Sooners secondary without Radley-Hiles on the field. The Bears added 10 points in the second quarter to take a 13-10 lead into the half.
Stay tuned for the latest.
