Last week, Jalen Hurts made the decision to transfer from Alabama to Oklahoma. Despite recently joining the culture in Norman, the veteran quarterback is already embracing the program's best rivalry.

The Sooners have aspirations to win the Big 12 once again this upcoming season, which will require taking down the Texas Longhorns. Tom Herman's offense will revolve around Sam Ehlinger, meanwhile Lincoln Riley will have to build his unit around another transfer at quarterback.

Losing Kyler Murray will definitely have an impact for Oklahoma, but adding an experienced signal-caller that has made three trips to the College Football Playoff should help.

Fortunately for Oklahoma, Hurts is acclimating well to his new program and cementing his status as a member of the Sooners.

Hurts spent time with his future teammate Spencer Rattler over the weekend, as the two posed for pictures.

Both quarterbacks wasted little time throwing shade in the direction of Texas by throwing up the “Horns Down” gesture.

Here is the photo:

This inverted version of Texas’ famous hand signal has become one of the most popular taunts around the country, and it's clear that Hurts had no trouble joining this trend.

Although this was most likely a playful gesture from the upperclassman, the Longhorns could possibly use this as bulletin board material.

Get ready for another epic battle between Oklahoma and Texas in 2019.
