DALLAS — Senior quarterback Jalen Hurts is all in on OUDNA.
After rushing for 131 yards — a school record for a quarterback playing Texas — and throwing for 235 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in No. 6 Oklahoma's 34-27 win over No. 11 Texas (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), the Alabama transfer didn't hold back on how he feels about his new program. Having wins in both the Iron Bowl and now the Red River Rivalry is something Hurts said is special, and that he couldn't have done it without his Oklahoma teammates.
"I think that's a testament to my teammates," Hurts said. "I wouldn't rather do it with any other group. Talk about emotional ties I have to this university — they're there now, for sure.
"OUDNA in me."
The win brings Oklahoma to a 6-0 record, 3-0 in the Big 12. The Sooners played their most complete game in the Red River Rivalry in years. On top of CeeDee Lamb catching for 171 yards and three touchdowns, the OU defense tallied nine sacks on the day.
OU will play West Virginia at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 19.
