Sooners Power Over Red Raiders, 63-27

Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time since last season and for just the second time since 2008, the Sooners had two running backs rush for over 100 yards in their 63-27 win. Joe Mixon rushed for 154 and Samaje Perine rushed for 201 yards in an outstanding performance from the Oklahoma running game. The run game started off strong and it ended up being the difference. Neither quarterback tore it up like most expected but Baker Mayfield did much better than Patrick Mahomes, who threw four interceptions. Mayfield threw an interception, but it was just his fourth all season and he made up for it by throwing two touchdowns.

Oklahoma's defense played solid, holding the Red Raiders to it's lowest point total on the season with just 27 points. The Tech offense was held under 300 yards passing despite them coming into the game as the 2nd best passing offense in the country.

The Sooners punted just once in the game and Austin Seibert missed his first field goal of the season near the end of the first half. But the freshman kicker still made 9/9 extra points, so we'll give him a freebie for his first collegiate miss.

The Sooners rushed for seven touchdowns, passed for two, and picked off the Red Raiders four times showing that the Kansas State game wasn't a fluke. The Texas game made this team very mad and the past two wins have given them the most momentum they've had all year. It came just in time, because Baylor is only a couple of weeks away now.
