Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said Tuesday afternoon Jalen Hurts won a tightly contested battle for the starting quarterback spot.
Riley says it was the closest race for a starting quarterback spot he's dealt with since coming to OU in 2015.
Hurts is a graduate transfer from Alabama who beat out Tanner Mordecai for the job.
Incoming freshman Spencer Rattler is third string behind Hurts and Mordecai.
OU opens the season September 1 at home against Houston.
