Fun Football Facts From 2008: Baylor Bears


Going into conference play Oklahoma’s offense had been unstoppable. In the first four games of the season the Sooners had scored 199 points and in the conference opener Baylor didn’t have an answer either. Oklahoma jumped on the Bears with four first quarter touchdowns and then coasted to an easy 49-17 win. Here are a few fun facts about the game that you may have forgotten.  

 

  • The Baylor crowd of 37,145 would be the smallest crowd OU would play in front of all season.

 

  • Oklahoma improved to 18-0 against Baylor and 8-0 in Waco.

 

  • With its 28 points in the first quarter, Oklahoma equaled its second-highest total for a quarter against Big 12 opponents. OU has reached the plateau three times: Baylor (2000), Texas (2000) and Texas A&M (2003). The highest total was OU’s 35 points in the second quarter in its 77-0 win over Texas A&M in 2003.
