Let's not forget to appreciate Patrick Mahomes

Let's not forget to appreciate Patrick Mahomes

It was either handsome or disgusting Saturday night.

A win would give the Sooners their first 4-0 start in Big 12 play since 2004 and keep them in the hunt for the conference title. Will the Sooners be able put consistent pressure on Tech's talented thrower and nation's leading passer, QB Patrick Mahomes?

How OU finished with more points can be boiled down in a few declarative sentences. Defensively, Texas Tech football is yielding 274.3 yards in passing and 204.8 yards in rushing against the opposing teams.

Defense: TCU. True, the Frogs are having issues on defense, but Texas Tech's problems are at an entirely different level of ineptitude.

The numbers require an office of CPAs and the record books require dozens of updates.

Add it all together, and an FBS record for total offense was set. He also ran for 85 yards and two more touchdowns. As a result, OU went with senior Jordan Wade, who was flanked by freshman Amani Bledsoe and senior Austin Roberts, and Texas Tech scored a touchdown two plays later.

Mayfield, a graduate of Lake Travis HS, hit on 27 of 36 for seven TDs.

OU receiver Dede Westbrook was nearly lost in the offensive avalanche. Mixon also had four receptions for 114 yards and three touchdowns. Both are OU records for a four-game stretch. 15 players had at least one catch of 15 yards or longer. On the other side, Oklahoma became the first offense in FBS history to feature a 500-yard passer, 200-yard rusher and 200-yard receiver.

The Longhorns dominated with two large runs to secure the third set 25-16. He did not have a catch during his Red Raider career coming into tonight's game. Those teams are a combined 2-12.

Misbah-ul-Haq, the Pakistan skipper, made all the bowling and field changes he believed would trigger a swift end. Pakistan's hopes were rested on leg-spinner Yasir Shah who was not at his best despite good turn on offer.

That sort of approach may allow Oklahoma to squeak by Kansas and Iowa State the next two weeks, but back-to-back games against Baylor and West Virginia on November 12 and November 19, respectively, could spell trouble for a program that has failed to effectively clamp down on some of the conference's less complete clubs.

Since then, nothing. Teams that win national championships play defense in a way most Big 12 teams don't.

Mayfield returned to Lubbock for the first time eligible since transferring away from Texas Tech in 2013.

By yards alone, you could look at Mahomes' day and say that he was more impressive. "Just executed really well, run and pass. Baker wasn't pressured too much".

"I'll be excited to play there and see some old friends pregame", Riley said. "A lot of throws I underthrew, overthrew.it wasn't good enough". "Obviously, the defense wants to play a little bit better, but you have to play off each other and the offense did just that". After the extra point Texas Tech took a 24-23 lead.

Mahomes absolutely horrified Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, who is frankly lucky to have been allowed to make the trip back home with the team.

OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops wasn't almost as forgiving of his defense's shortcomings.

"Just very disappointed in our effort, our coaching".

"We've got to re-evaluate a lot of the things we're doing". "We tried man, we tried zone". A week earlier on the same Texas Tech turf, the Mountaineers prevailed 48-17, holding the Red Raiders to 379 yards. The first was a 68-55 decision at Arizona State a month ago. OU at least made Texas Tech get to third down. Texas Tech is one of nine schools in the country to have only lost one fumble this season. Washington State's Connor Halliday had previously held the record in 2014.
