Oklahoma QB Dillon Gabriel Will Continue to be Evaluated Ahead of Kansas Contest

Oklahoma QB Dillon Gabriel Will Continue to be Evaluated Ahead of Kansas Contest

DALLAS — As Oklahoma turns its attention to Kansas, all eyes will be on Dillon Gabriel.

The Sooner offense was hapless without the starting quarterback, who missed Texas’ 49-0 rout of OU due to a concussion on Saturday.

Gabriel went through warmups ahead of the game as usual, only changing into street clothes as the Sooners emerged from the locker room for the final time before playing.

In his place, Davis Beville struggled. The Pittsburgh transfer completed 6-of-12 passes for 38 yards and an interception, and offensive coordinator Jeff Lebby was more comfortable directly snapping the ball to OU’s skill position players for a majority of the game.

Riding its first three-game skid since 1998, Oklahoma (3-3) will return home next Saturday to host the No. 19-ranked Kansas Jayhawks (5-1) before mercifully getting a bye week.
