The Oklahoma Sooners boast one of the nation's most prolific offenses. Actually, with Jalen Hurts under center, the Sooners have the No. 1 total offense in the country.

Despite the team's success, Hurts isn't buying into the "rat poison."

Following the team's win over UCLA this weekend, Hurts made it clear he isn't letting any of the outside hype get to him, calling it "rat poison" like his former coach Nick Saban does.

"I don't listen to that rat poison," Hurts said of the outside praise. "We want to focus on what we need to focus on, improve on the things we need to improve on and build as a team."

Hurts was back at it again this week. Oklahoma posted a photo on Instagram boasting about the team's success on offense this season.

Hurts made it clear he's not about that "rat poison."

Sooners fans have to love what they have in Hurts. He's the leader in the clubhouse for the Heisman this season - which would give the team a third-straight Heisman Trophy.

Hurts has totaled 880 passing yards and nine touchdowns through just three games this season. He's added 373 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
