Kyler Murray's first touchdown as an Oklahoma Sooner was especially memorable.
After relieving starter Baker Mayfield, Murray fired a 43-yard touchdown pass to Allen (Texas) High School teammate Lee Morris in the third quarter of Oklahoma's 56-7 win over Texas-El Paso on Saturday.

It was the first touchdown for both as Sooners.
“It was a special moment for me and Lee,” Murray said. “I never thought Lee would be the person my first touchdown pass at OU (would go to). Crazy things happen. The play coach (Lincoln) Riley called, we just executed.”
Murray, a transfer from Texas A&M who sat out last year, recently was named Oklahoma’s No. 2 quarterback. He started three games for the Aggies in 2015.
Morris is a walk-on who is a redshirt sophomore.
