3 key numbers from the Sooners' win over Tulane

Whatever sleepwalking had occurred by the defense in the first quarter was erased as Oklahoma took care of business, downing Tulane 56-14 in Week 3. Oklahoma outgained Tulane 631 yards to 291 yards.

TULANE: The Green Wave were solid in a 23-21 loss to Navy last Saturday, and were good again for much of the first half against Oklahoma.

Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb caught four passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns before he was ejected for targeting on a block in the second quarter. His biggest play was a 49-yard run that set up an Oklahoma score.

Oklahoma didn't go in front, though, until cornerback Parnell Motley jumped in front of Jacob Robertson Jr. and intercepted a pass from Brantley, returning it 77 yards for a touchdown early in the second quarter.

When Oklahoma punched in its fifth touchdown to go up 35-14 midway through the third quarter, left guard Ben Powers took the time to taunt Tulane's defensive linemen.

Hilliard became the 12th Tulane player to reach 2,000 rushing yards for his career on a easy 2-yard score for the first touchdown.

OU running back Abdul Adams, who was replaced in the starting lineup by freshman Trey Sermon, ran for a 20-yard touchdown to cap a 95-yard scoring drive near the end of the first half, giving the Sooners their first two-score lead. Johnathan Brantley started in his place.

Baker Mayfield was 17-of-27 passing for 331 yards and four touchdowns, and OU (3-0) solved the Green Wave's option attack after looking confused early. The big game of the week was #2 Ohio State vs. #5 Oklahoma.

Lamb was open again in the middle for a 22-yard score as Oklahoma tied it at 14.
