Oklahoma fans heard a familiar last name during Saturday’s contest against Kansas State. Drake Stoops, the son of former head coach Bob Stoops, scored an incredible touchdown against the Wildcats.
Stoops, who is a sophomore wide receiver, out-jumped multiple Kansas State defenders to haul in a 32-yard touchdown pass from Spencer Rattler early in the second quarter of the contest. Stoops’ catch game Oklahoma a 14-0 lead.
Thus far, it’s the only catch of the day for Stoops. But it was a big one – and one that didn’t come on that great of a throw.
Rattler, meanwhile, is having an up-and-down game. He’s 13-of-15 for 149 yards with two touchdowns. He’s also thrown two picks.
Here’s the play:

The touchdown was the first of Stoops’ career. In his first two seasons in Norman, Stoops had just 10 catches for 111 yards. He’s looking to be a bigger part of the offense in his third year on campus.
Oklahoma, midway through the second quarter, leads 14-0. The Sooners, per usual, have College Football Playoff aspirations.
