No. 9 Oklahoma at TCU: Sooners off to fast start against Frogs | National

FORT WORTH — Oklahoma scored touchdowns on its first four series of the game and leads TCU 28-7 in the second quarter Saturday.

Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray completed 11 of his first 13 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns.

He found CeeDee Lamb for a 37-yard touchdown on OU’s first series.

But TCU answered with a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to tie the game.

The Sooners marched 70 yards in 14 plays to score on their second series. After two fourth-down conversions, Trey Sermon scored from 4 yards out to give his team a 14-7 lead with 1:37 left in the first quarter.

Under new defensive coordinator Ruffin McNeill, OU was solid early. The Sooners defense forced punts on TCU’s first three series, allowing only 30 yards.

OU’s Kennedy Brooks scored on a 21-yard run on a fourth-down play on the Sooners’ third series, giving his team a 21-7 lead with 10:46 left in the half.

The margin increased to 28-7 with 8:25 left in the first half, as Murray hit Lee Morris for a 9-yard touchdown.
