Storylines

Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts has recorded a passing efficiency rating of at least 245.0 in all four games this season and is the only FBS player since at least 1996 to record more than two such outings (min. 18 attempts) in a season.

The Sooners are averaging a nation-leading 668.5 offensive yards per game, which is 100 yards more than the next highest average (568.6 by UCF). Making that even more impressive is the fact the Sooners rank 111th out of 130 teams by averaging just 64.5 plays per game.

OU has forced six turnovers, five turnovers on downs and 22 punts through four games, while registering 27 tackles for loss and 10 sacks. After ranking 118th nationally last year in defensive third-down conversion percentage (46.4%), OU ranks second nationally this season (19.6%).

The Sooners led the nation last year in both yards per pass attempt (11.3) and yards per rush (6.6). So far this season, they are doing it again. OU ranks first nationally with its 13.5 yards per pass attempt (next highest average is 11.6) and with its 8.0 yards per rush (next highest average is 7.3).
