Oklahoma demolished Tulsa on Saturday afternoon, improving its season record to 3-0 as conference play looms on Saturday. The Sooners amassed 595 total yards of offense in their 66-17 thumping of the Golden Hurricane, averaging 13.6 yards every time they threw the ball, and 4.3 yards per pass. Defensively the Sooners forced five turnovers, returning one interception for a score, sacked Tulsa quarterbacks 3 times and made 15 tackles for loss. It was definitely a big play kind of day for OU, on both sides of the ball. Of Oklahoma’s nine touchdowns, four of them were from 30-yards out or further. So, who made the best play? You let us know!
Jalil Farooq From 34 Yards Out
Oklahoma’s junior receiver fumbled the opening kickoff, and then was flagged for a false start. The third time he had his name called was pretty spectacular though. He caught a pass from Dillon Gabriel at the Tulsa 20 and then flashed some speed and agility to score the first touchdown of the game.
Danny Stutsman 30-Yard Pick Six
You won’t convince me that there’s a better defender in the Big 12 right now than Danny Stutsman. Once again he led Oklahoma’s defense with 9 total tackles, but his biggest play came in the opening quarter when he housed an interception from 30 yards out.
Nic Anderson From 42 Yards Out
Anderson made Oklahoma Football history on Saturday by becoming the first freshman to catch three touchdown passes in one game. This was the middle one and it was the best one, in my opinion. All three were spectacular but he had to shake defenders and turn on the jets to score on this one.
