Nornan, OK – No. 12 Sooners beat Tulsa 45-0 for second shutout
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) No. 12 Oklahoma recorded its second straight shutout, beating Tulsa 45-0 Saturday for its 26th straight home victory.
The Sooners (2-1) broke the school record for consecutive wins on Owen Field by holding opponents scoreless in back-to-back games for the first time since 1987.
Ryan Broyles caught a career-high 11 passes for 128 yards and three touchdowns, and Brandon Caleb emerged as a potential second viable target with 104 yards on five catches and two scores.
Tulsa (2-1), which had the nation's top offense each of the past two seasons, was shut out for the first time since 2004 against Navy.
