Baker Mayfield tried to scramble, and a Houston linebacker made him into a pancake

New, comment

This might be the most efficient way to stop Oklahoma's quarterback.

Oklahoma and Houston are playing what looks like one of Week 1's best games on Saturday. Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield is one of the country's best players, but he met his match on one third-down try in the first quarter.

Houston inside linebacker Matthew Adams went on some kind of search-and-destroy mission, and he planted Mayfield shy of the first-down marker. Mayfield's dangerous, but few quarterbacks are going to respond well to that.

Enjoy the commentary above by Jim Ross, all-time wrestling announcer and ardent Sooners fan.
