Oklahoma ran Texas Tech’s defense into the turf today as the Sooners beat the Red Raiders 63-27. The Sooner rushing game ground up 405 yards on 57 carries as Samaji Perine led OU with 201 yards (23 carries and 4 TDs) and Joe Mixon complimented Perine with 154 yards (16 carries and 2 TDs). Baker Mayfield threw it 22 times with 15 completions for 212 yards and two touchdown passes. The Sooner qb had one first half interception.
The OU offensive was unstoppable. Texas Tech qb Pat Mahomes II threw four interceptions in the loss. The win ups the Sooners record to 6-1 and 3-1 in conference play with a trip to Lawrence next week to face the Kansas Jayhawks. Tech will host undefeated Okla. State in Lubbock. The Red Raiders are now 5-3 and 2-3 in conference.
