(Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)Oklahoma Sooners wide receiver Marquise Brown had one of the best games you’ll ever see against a major rival in last season’s edition of Bedlam.As a sophomore in 2017, he caught nine passes for 265 yards and two scores in OU’s 62-52 shootout win in Stillwater.Earlier this year, Brown looked to be building similar chemistry with Kyler Murray as he had with Baker Mayfield last year. He went for over 100 yards in four of the team’s six games, and had all seven of his touchdowns on the season during that stretch.Brown’s been hobbled by a leg injury over the last few weeks, though. Over the last three games, he has 12 catches for 139 yards and has been held out of the end zone.Marquise Brown and Oklahoma Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley both think he’ll be back near 100-percent for this Saturday’s edition of Bedlam against Oklahoma State.From The Norman Transcript:Marquise Brown burst onto the national scene with a Bedlam performance for the ages last season, but whether the Oklahoma receiver can replicate that depends on his health.A leg injury has slowed him recently, though OU coach Lincoln Riley said the junior receiver will be “close to top speed” by the time Oklahoma State visits Saturday.“I’m getting better each and every day, rehabbing,” Brown said. “I’m feeling good.”After last year’s 1,095 yard campaign, Brown has 814 yards and seven scores this season, even with a catchless game against Army and the recent injury. He has a chance to top those gaudy numbers if he can get back on track for the homestretch here.[The Norman Transcript]last_img read more
