Spencer Rattler has possessed a flare for the dramatic since his days at Pinnacle High School in Phoenix.

The redshirt freshman quarterback did just that on Saturday, tying the University of Oklahoma’s record for most passing touchdowns through two weeks (8), set by Sam Bradford in 2008.

Rattler tied Bradford’s mark in the third quarter of Saturday’s home game with Kansas State, delivering a strike to Jeremiah Hall for a 21-yard score.

Rattler began his freshman campaign with 290 passing yards and four touchdowns in a 48-0 win over Missouri State on Sept. 12.

Rattler’s day ended on a sour note, however, as his fourth quarter interception on the Sooners final drive capped off a 38-35 win for Kansas State.

Rattler and the third-ranked Sooners are now 1-1 for the season.
