NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Kyler Murray has been picked as Oklahoma’s starting quarterback over Austin Kendall.

Murray will start in Oklahoma’s season opener Sept. 1 against Florida Atlantic.

Murray was the backup to Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield last season and completed 18 of 21 passes for 359 yards and three touchdowns and ran 14 times for 142 yards.

The Oakland Athletics took Murray with the ninth pick in the Major League Baseball draft this summer, but he chose to return to school for a year.
