Abdul Adams had the hot hand
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.
