NORMAN – New Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts completed 12 of his first 13 passes and had two touchdowns, while the Sooners defense held Houston to 24 yards on its first four series.
Hurts , a transfer from Alabama, started at quarterback and followed back-to-back Heisman Trophy winners and NFL first-round picks Kyler Murray and Baker M Ayfield.
The OU defense was under the direction of first-year coordinator Alex Grinch, who was brought in to bring to life a unit that was historically bad in 2018.
