Sterling Shepard had a career-high 177 yards receiving to help No. 4 Oklahoma defeat Tulsa 52-7 on Saturday.

Trevor Knight passed for 299 yards and two touchdowns and ran for another score. Alex Ross ran for 90 yards and a touchdown, Keith Ford ran for 87 yards and two scores and Blake Bell, a converted quarterback who now plays tight end, caught his first career touchdown pass for the Sooners (2-0).

It was Oklahoma's sixth straight win overall and eighth in a row in the series against Tulsa. It came with a cost — star cornerback Zack Sanchez left the game in the second quarter after injuring his right shoulder and did not return.

Tulsa quarterback Dane Evans passed for 204 yards and Keevan Lucas caught 10 passes for 84 yards for the Golden Hurricane (1-1).
