[Jalen] Hurts, who began his college career at Alabama before transferring to Oklahoma, quoted Scripture in a postgame news conference.

“I went through a lot of stuff in college and it kind of stuck with me – John 13:7. ‘You may not know now, but later you will understand.'”

Hurts called it “my favorite verse.” …
