  • After struggling all fall in its intrasquad scrimmages, Oklahoma Baptist’s offense showed some big-play potential in the spring game Saturday in front of nearly 2,000 fans.
     
    “We made a lot of plays on both sides of the ball,” said Bison head coach Chris Jensen. “Offensively, we’ve made a lot of improvement this spring. I think today, the wide receivers really played well, both receiving and blocking. They really turned it on.
     
    “Coach (John) Johnson has made a big difference there. That was a really important hire we made this spring.”
     
    Derek Serowski had catches of 28 and 50 yards to go along with touchdown catches of 40 and 2 yards. Cody Miller had two catches for 45 yards and a touchdown, and Cy Stallard had the other touchdown reception.
     
    Quarterbacks Cale Grauer and Blake Woodard threw well. Grauer was 10-for-16 with two touchdowns and 153 yards, including the 50-yard pass and a 40-yard touchdown throw to Serowski.
     
    Woodard was 12-for-24 with two touchdowns and 162 yards.
    Both threw one interception.
     
    The running game was led by Darryl Fields, who had 57 yards on eight carries, including a 25-yard touchdown jaunt.
     
    The offense accounted for 301 yards passing and 94 yards rushing.
     
    Jermaine Tucker registered two sacks while Keegan Metcalf was credited with 1.5. Kimes Gilbert and Metcalf both had fumble recoveries and OBU got interceptions from Nic Shegog and Clint Wilson.
     
    The game was marred by injuries to Manuel Monge and Indongeset Mbong. Monge’s injuries are expected to be minimal while Mbong’s appeared more serious and probably involved his ACL.
     
    The Bison play for the first time since 1940 this fall, hosting Southwestern College at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 31.
