AP - Recap
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) -- Landry Jones re-established his connection with All-American receiver Ryan Broyles, Dominique Whaley ran for four scores in his debut and top-ranked Oklahoma beat Tulsa 47-14 Saturday night.

Jones threw for 375 yards, Broyles came up just shy of his own school receptions record with 14 for 158 yards and the Sooners (1-0) extended the nation's longest home winning streak with their 37th straight win on Owen Field.

Broyles' 4-yard touchdown catch put Oklahoma up 30-0 with 4:23 left before halftime, and Tulsa (0-1) never mounted a challenge in Bill Blankenship's first game as head coach.

The Sooners opened at No. 1 for the first time since 2003, after holding the top spot for only two weeks over the past seven seasons. They were selected as the preseason favorite after a solid finish to last season that included the end of a five-game losing streak in BCS bowl games.

Jones got in a groove early by hooking up with Broyles -- the nation's leader last season with 131 receptions -- seven times for 120 yards in the first quarter, then everyone else got involved.

One of the stars ended up being someone who, until recently, had been mostly off the radar as the Sooners sought a replacement for DeMarco Murray, who was drafted into the NFL after setting the school's record for career touchdowns.

Whaley, a walk-on who formerly played at Langston University of the NAIA, emerged in a tie with Brennan Clay for the starting spot at running back this week. He had three short touchdown runs in the first half and then ran through three potential tackles on a 32-yarder that pushed the Sooners lead to 44-7 late in the third quarter.

Whaley finished with 131 yards on a team-high 18 carries

The Sooners honored linebacker Austin Box by allowing his replacement, Tom Wort, to wear his No. 12 jersey for the season opener. Other defensive players will get the chance to wear it throughout the season as a tribute to Box, who overdosed on painkillers in May. He was expected to start at middle linebacker in what would have been his senior season.

Wort led the team onto the field before the game, pointing at the student section with both arms to elicit a cheer and then dropping to one knee in the end zone. There was then a moment of silence for Box.

An inspired Sooners defense never gave Tulsa much of a chance, even with an offense that was the most productive in the nation two of the last four years and in the top five last season.

The Golden Hurricane were without top receiver Damaris Johnson, a second-team All-American last season and the NCAA's career record holder in all-purpose yardage and kickoff returns. He was charged this week with felony embezzlement and is suspended indefinitely with games against No. 9 Oklahoma State and No. 5 Boise State looming this month.

Tulsa went three-and-out three times in the first half and turned it over twice before finally getting on the board when Bryan Burnham caught a quick pass from G.J. Kinne against broken coverage and raced 56 yards to make it 30-7.

A couple other long pass plays after the game was out of hand provided most of the Golden Hurricane's offense. Willie Carter had receptions of 69 and 44 yards and ended up with 135 yards on five catches.

Trey Watts, the son of former Sooners quarterback J.C. Watts, scored on a 24-yard catch and run in the fourth quarter.
