Jalen Hurts is playing so well to start the season that people are already making their Heisman predictions. The transfer QB is putting up some ridiculously good stats — we're talking video game numbers.

Hurts and the Sooners are playing Texas Tech at the moment. And Oklahoma's offense is once again firing on all cylinders. The Sooners already have a 17-0 lead in the first quarter.

Who's leading the way? You guessed it — Hurts. He's completed 5-of-6 pass attempts for 168 yards. Hurts also has a rushing score which gave his team a 14-0 lead. This game is already getting out of hand.

Oklahoma's weapons on offense are some of the best players in the nation. With Hurts' experience and football IQ, he's commanding the offense with ease.

Right from the start, Lincoln Riley's third straight transfer QB picked up the system. The Sooners are averaging 676.7 total yards per game, which leads the nation. Washington State is second in the nation in regards to offensive yards per game. But the Cougars average 71.4 yards less than the Sooners.

Oklahoma fields an elite offensive attack. Can any team in the nation stop Hurts and the Sooners this year?
