The Oklahoma Sooners don't know how to lose - at least not this season.

Oklahoma looks like one of the most-dominant teams in the country, with it's closest contest coming against Texas in the Red River Showdown.

On Saturday afternoon, the Sooners rode quarterback Jalen Hurts to a 52-14 win over West Virginia to move to 7-0 on the season. Hurts compiled nearly 400 yards of offense and and five total touchdowns in the win.

After the game, a stat emerged that truly baffled college football fans. It shows just how much better Lincoln Riley's offense is than his opponents'.

Oklahoma's opponents have run seven more players this season than the Sooners have. However, Oklahoma has out-gained those opponents by over 2,000 yards.

Lincoln Riley is consistently talked about as the best offensive mind in the country and this stat proves that.

He puts his best athletes in space and allows them to make plays. It also helps to have a quarterback with the skillset of Hurts - who is lethal on the ground and through the air.

Next up for the Sooners is a trip to Manhattan, KS for a matchup against Kansas State.
