Abdul Adams had the hot hand

Tulsa World - - Around The Nation - — Eric Bai­ley, Tulsa World

The run­ning back-by-com­mit­tee work con­tin­ued Satur­day night. Trey Ser­mon, who led the team in rush­ing at Ohio State, got the start but Abdul Adams was the star. Adams fin­ished with a ca­reer-high 93 yards, while Rod­ney An­der­son and Marcelias Sut­ton earned work Satur­day as well. With the op­tions at run­ning back, ex­pect the four to con­tinue to share car­ries un­less one es­tab­lishes him­self in the near fu­ture.

De­fense sur­vives shaky first quar­ter

Tu­lane’s op­tion-based of­fense tested the Soon­ers early — not only on the field, but off the field. The Green Wave frus­trated OU early, which left the coach­ing staff chal­leng­ing the team to han­dle as­sign­ments bet­ter while try­ing to com­pete harder at the line of scrim­mage. Ok­la­homa made im­por­tant ad­just­ments, which fed the on­slaught. Tu­lane only had 67 yards of of­fense after half­time.
