Tulsa World - - Sports - In 2011, Bay­lor was 0-20 against the Sooners. a beer in each hand, and the fans re­ally got af­ter each other.”

Dur­ing the past 50 years, Chris Schenkel, Keith Jack­son, Brent Mus­burger and Brad Nessler were among the lu­mi­nar­ies who pro­vided OU-Texas tele­vi­sion playby-play.

“In col­lege foot­ball, any time you have an ex­pe­ri­enced, tal­ented and con­fi­dent quar­ter­back, it (re­sults in) the big­gest gap between teams,” Tes­si­tore said. “There is so much in­ex­pe­ri­ence on the field in ev­ery col­lege foot­ball game, and there are al­ways ques­tion marks on ev­ery­body's two-deep.

“So to have that guy at quar­ter­back, and he's your most ex­pe­ri­enced, tal­ented and con­fi­dent player, it's a huge edge.”

In the third start of his rookie sea­son, Eh­linger passed for 380 yards and rushed for 107 against K-State.

“I don't think the kid is re­fined and pol­ished,” Tes­si­tore said, “but there's some­thing very sturdy about him. When you look at him phys­i­cally, and see the way he car­ries him­self on the field, he just looks like a player who's go­ing to win col­lege foot­ball games.

“He's that al­pha dog rah-rah guy. He's got a lot of Tim Te­bow in him.”
