As the Sooners took the field in Waco on a rainy Saturday night it was clear that this was a game that they had been looking forward too for some time. The Sooners were punched in the mouth early as Bayor had little trouble driving the length of the field and scoring with seemingly no push back from the Sooners defense.
The Sooners however punched back and eventually out slugged the Bears to win convincingly in Waco 44-34. One of the biggest highlights of the game was a beautiful 39 yard touchdown pass from Mayfield to Sterling Shepard in the middle of the second quarter.
The Sooners handed Baylor their first loss of the season and in doing so vaulted themselves back into the college football playoff discussion. Mayfield finished with 270 yards passing and 3 touchdowns. He added another 76 yards on the ground and another TD as well.
