The Oklahoma Sooners quickly separated themselves from the Tulsa Golden Hurricane in a 66-17 Saturday at Chapman Stadium in Tulsa. OU quarterback Dillon Gabriel had a huge day, averaging over 15 yards per completion and completed eight plays of over 25 yards or more. He finished with 421 passing yards while completing 28-of-31 attempts (90.3%) and adding five touchdowns. He also set a program record for completion percentage in a single game (minimum of 25 attempts).
On the first possession of the game, which was a two-play, 89-yard scoring drive, Gabriel hit Andrel Anthony down the field for a 55-yard gain. On the next play, Gabriel found Jalil Farooq for a 34-yard touchdown.
Back-up quarterback Jackson Arnold found Nic Anderson for a 50yard touchdown late in the third quarter. That was just one of three touchdowns on the day for Anderson, making him the first OU freshman to score three times in a single game.
The Sooners rushed with 29 carries for 119 yards (4.3 yards per carry) and two touchdowns. OU opens up Big12 conference play next week as they travel to Cincinnati.
