NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley never imagined having his quarterback run the ball so much.
He’s also never had one quite like Jalen Hurts. The graduate transfer has rushed for 1,217 yards and 18 touchdowns this season and is nearing the school record for rushing yards in a season by a quarterback.
“I love having mobile guys, and I think being able to run the quarterback some here and there is a great thing to be able to do offensively,” Riley said. “But to say we’d have a guy that would rush for that many yards - I probably would have lost that bet.”
