Cody Thomas Named Backup Quarterback

Redshirt sophomore Cody Thomas will serve as backup quarterback for Baker Mayfield in the Orange Bowl, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops announced in press conference on Wednesday.

"Cody was our backup going into Bedlam, and it will be the same for the Orange Bowl," Stoops said.

In nine career games, Thomas has completed 31-of-67 passes for 343 yards and two touchdowns, four interceptions. In 2015, Thomas completed his lone pass attempt for one yard at Kansas State.

Last week, Bob Stoops announced quarterback Trevor Knight was granted a full release of his scholarship to transfer from Oklahoma after the season.
