A Texas team whose defense is still in serious disarray attempted to engage the Sooners in a second-half shootout. Baker Mayfield, Samaje Perine and Dede Westbrook reminded everyone they’re the wrong guys to mess with in a scoring fest.
Mayfield threw for 390 yards, Perine rumbled for 214, and Westbrook broke OU’s single-game receiving record with 232 yards to help break a Longhorns team that’s now on a three-game losing streak and making Charlie Strong’s job harder and harder every week.
Strong’s hot-seat status might continue to dominate headlines after this one, but let’s not overlook how much the Sooners needed this one. They had revenge on their minds, not just for the 23-17 upset loss to Texas a year ago but for the 1-2 start that bounced them out of the College Football Playoff hunt. (More at ESPN.com)
