Kyler Murray never lost a Texas high school football game, going 42-0 as a prep with three straight state championships. He can't say the same about being a starting quarterback in the Red River Rivalry.
Playing in front of his home state at the University of Texas, Murray found himself on the other side of one of the biggest rivalries in college football. And a last-second Texas field goal put an end to his and Oklahoma's perfect record this season.
That doesn't mean Murray didn't continue his Heisman campaign in the 48-45 loss.
[JOHNSON: A's top pick Kyler Murray always envisioned himself as a two-sport star]
Murray, the Sooners quarterback and A's top draft pick last June, threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns. On the ground, Murray rushed for another 92 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. He did have mistakes with one interception and one fumble.
Looking to pull off a two-touchdown comeback, Murray made plays like this with his arm.
That wasn't even close to his biggest highlight of the day. Down 45-31 with 5:21 left, Murray showed off his blazing wheels for perhaps the best run of this college football season.
Through six games, Murray now has 1,764 passing yards with 21 touchdowns through the air to three interceptions. He's been just as impressive using his legs, rushing for 377 yards and five more scores.
Last season during his Heisman campaign, Baker Mayfield, who Murray replaced at Oklahoma, total 1,937 passing yards through six games with 17 touchdowns and one interception. He also had 101 yards on the ground and one more score.
Comparing the two, Murray (2,141) has 103 more total yards than Mayfield did in 2017 through the first six games, and eight more touchdowns.
If Murray is wearing an A's jersey in a few years, don't blink with him on the base paths.
