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, and had held the top spot for only two weeks over the past seven seasons.
