If there wasn't already a quarterback controversy brewing in Norman, Oklahoma wide receiver Lacolton Bester might have wound up in the mix, too.
Bester's 49-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard on a wide receiver reverse last week jumpstarted a sluggish Sooners' offense in a 34-19 win over Kansas.
The pass might have been the best one thrown during the entire game.
''Coach (Josh) Heupel and Coach (Jay) Norvell finally decided it was oiled up enough to do it,'' Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. ''After I saw Lacolton throw it, I'm wondering why we don't throw it a couple of times a game. He can just pull up in the pocket and find somebody. It was perfect. I knew he could throw it, but not that well.''
While Bester won't be added to the quarterback depth chart anytime soon, the play did highlight the Sooners' need for more big offensive plays early in games. Many of their games this year have come down to them trying to put teams away in the fourth quarter.
It's a pattern senior...
