Redshirt freshman quarterback Spencer Rattler exited OU's game against No. 22 Texas on Saturday during the second quarter with an injury.

Redshirt sophomore backup Tanner Mordecai took over for Rattler after the Sooners' first-year starter exited the game. It's unknown at this time whether or not Rattler will return to play.

Prior to the injury, Rattler had completed 8 of 13 passes for 74 yards, one touchdown and one interception while also losing a fumble.

OU is currently tied with Texas, 10-10, in the second quarter.
