Oklahoma had the best offense in college football during the 2018 regular season, but the Sooners have had a rude awakening against No. 1 Alabama tonight.

The Crimson Tide's defense has given Kyler Murray and his offense a ton of problems this evening.

Murray has been pressured from all angles and OU's offense hasn't been able to get anything going.

The Heisman Trophy-winning QB has taken some big hits, too.

Oklahoma's coaches' message to Murray on the sideline has apparently been pretty simple: Get the ball out quicker.

"You're holding onto the ball too long, you have to get it out quicker," said Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley to Murray, according to ESPN's Laura Rutledge.

We'll see if that can help moving forward.

Oklahoma currently trails Alabama, 14-0, in the first quarter.

The game is on ESPN.
