Oklahoma Sooners

2018 Season By the Numbers

Oklahoma’s 2018 season, which ended with its third College Football Playoff appearance in four years and a fourth straight Big 12 title, was another one for the record books. Here’s a look back at some of the feats the Sooners accomplished this year:

Oklahoma became the first team to ever produce a 4,000-yard passer (Kyler Murray 4,361), two 1,000-yard rushers (Kennedy Brooks 1,060 and Murray 1,001) and two 1,000-yard receivers (Marquise Brown 1,318 and CeeDee Lamb 1,158) in a season.

Kyler Murray became just the second player to record at least 4,000 passing yards and 1,000 rushing yards in a season, joining Clemson’s Deshaun Watson (2015). Murray also finished with a 199.2 pass efficiency rating, better than Baker Mayfield’s NCAA-record 198.9 last year.

Marquise Brown and CeeDee Lamb became the first pair of Sooners to each register 1,000 receiving yards in a season.

Kyler Murray registered three games of at least 300 passing yards and 100 rushing yards. No other Sooner had ever accomplished the feat one time.

Austin Seibert set the OU record for points in a season (138) and set the NCAA record for career points among kickers (499). He also owns the NCAA record with 310 career extra points.

First season in school history in which five players scored at least 10 touchdowns (Trey Sermon 13, Kennedy Brooks 12, Kyler Murray 12, CeeDee Lamb 11 and Marquise Brown 10).

First OU team to ever produce three players with at least 10 rushing touchdowns in a season (Trey Sermon, Kennedy Brooks and Kyler Murray).

Kenneth Murray’s 155 tackles were the most by a Sooner since Curtis Lofton had 157 in 2007.

Kenneth Murray (155) and Curtis Bolton (139) become just the second OU duo to each record at least 135 tackles in a season. Linebackers Daryl Hunt (159) and George Cumby (154) also did it in 1977.

First team in FBS history to record nine regular season conference games of at least 500 yards of offense.

Kyler Murray won Oklahoma’s seventh Heisman Trophy to move OU into a tie with Notre Dame and Ohio State for the most ever.

Four straight Big 12 titles. No other program has more than three total.
