You never want to have one of your key players suspended before the season opener, but such is the case with Houston safety Jordan Moore.

Moore has been suspended indefinitely due to a violation of university policy, according to the Houston Chronicle. He will miss Sunday night's game against No. 4 Oklahoma.

Moore transferred to Houston from Texas A&M after last season. He appeared in four games for the Aggies while maintaining a redshirt year.

A four-star prospect out of Yoakum (Tex.) High School, Moore was a top-30 player in the state of Texas as a senior, per 247Sports' Composite Rankings.

Houston and Oklahoma will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ABC on Sunday night.

The Cougars are coming off an 8-5 season and a loss to Army in the Armed Forces Bowl. It will be their first game under new head coach Dana Holgorsen.

Oklahoma, meanwhile, went 12-2 last year under Lincoln Riley, winning the Big 12 before losing to Alabama in the College Football Playoff semifinal.
