NORMAN, Okla. — Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb was ejected in the second quarter Saturday against Tulane for targeting.

The flag was thrown while Lamb was blocking on a reverse to Jeff Badet that would have been a 44-yard touchdown run. The second-ranked Sooners led 21-14 when the penalty was called with just under four minutes left in the second quarter.

Lamb, a freshman, had caught four passes for 131 yards and two touchdowns. His 82-yard touchdown reception in the first quarter was the longest catch by a freshman in school history.
