Oklahoma running back Samaje Perine (32) celebrates his first touchdown of the season. Perine's score was OU's first of the game against Akron on Sept. 5, 2015 at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma.

The offense started off slow, but Oklahoma managed to put together two scoring drives near the end of the first half against Akron Saturday.

Running back Samaje Perine found the endzone on play No. 11 of a 60 yard drive to put the Sooners up 10-0. The second touchdown came on a 29-yard bomb from Baker Mayfield to Dede Westbrook to stretch the Oklahoma lead to 17 with 2:21 left in the half.


Numbers to know

5 — Perine finished with just five yards rushing, two of which came on his only touchdown of the first half. The offensive line struggled early Saturday, garnering drive-killing penalties on Oklahoma's first two outings.

61 — Mayfield completed 61 percent of his early throws for 190 yards and a touchdown. Furthermore, the junior proved mobile, tucking it and escaping pressure despite gaining just five yards on the ground.

— Oklahoma converted just two of eight third down attempts in the first half, earning their first with 7:16 left in the second quarter.
