OU-Tech: By the Numbers

SI discusses some of the stats from this weekend in a "By the Numbers" segment.

144: Number of passing yards the Sooners' defense allowed Texas Tech's three passers – two quarterbacks and one wide receiver – to throw for Saturday night, which is well below the 231.67 passing yards per game average the defense had allowed coming into the game. The total is the third lowest the defense has allowed in a game this season. Air Force gained 107 yards through the air and Iowa State had 124 yards.

32: The number of touchdown receptions junior wide receiver Ryan Broyles has caught during his career. It is the most in school history.

246: Rushing yards the Sooners gained against the Red Raiders. Three rushers – senior DeMarco Murray, senior Mossis Madu and freshman Roy Finch – had more than 60 yards on the ground each.

115: The Red Raiders accumulated 115 yards on nine penalties, two of which gave OU first downs. The Sooners were flagged just five times for 63 yards.

5: Redshirt sophomore quarterback Landry Jones found the end zone five times using three different receivers, marking just the 14th time that an OU passer has reached that mark in a single game. Jones has done this twice before. The first time was against Tulsa last year when he threw six and the second was later in the season against Texas A&M.

53: The number of touchdown passes Jones has thrown during his almost two full seasons at OU, which is good for a share of third place with current quarterbacks coach Josh Heupel in team history. He only trails former quarterbacks Jason White and Sam Bradford, who had 81 and 88 touchdowns, respectively.

47.8: The average net distance sophomore punter Tress Way had on five attempts. His longest punt went 58 yards.

17: The amount of tackles senior safety Quinton Carter recorded against Texas Tech. It is a career high and is the most by a defensive back since 2002.

151: The number of career interception return yards junior linebacker Travis Lewis has accumulated at OU. His 29-yard interception return in the second quarter gave him the most interception return yards in school history.
