No. 19 Oklahoma benched returning starter Trevor Knight in favor of Baker Mayfield, an Austin native who started for Texas Tech in 2013 as a true freshman walk-on. And so on.

While Golson has the ability to run, Fisher said Golson's priority is remaining in the pocket and keeping his eyes downfield when feeling the rush. They have worked on Golson protecting the football to avoid the fumbles, too. He's fumbled 20 times in 25 games.
