After a taste of college football with media days two weeks ago, the season started in earnest Thursday, as Oklahoma State and Tulsa both hit the practice field for the first time.

The Cowboys opened practice looking for a new quarterback, while the Hurricane welcomed back a familiar face from last season who had been thought to be lost to a career-ending injury.

OU doesn’t have its first practice until Saturday, but the school hosts its annual Meet the Sooners Day from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
