Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield put his name in the Sooners’ record book again with 572 total yards of offense, setting a new school record. He also accounted for six touchdowns, tying an Oklahoma record.
One week after leading No. 16 Oklahoma to a come-from-behind victory against Tennessee, Mayfield guided Oklahoma to a 52-38 victory against Tulsa in a shootout.
Oklahoma’s offense, which scored on its first four possessions, gained 773 total yards while Tulsa put up 603 yards, the most yards allowed since 2013 against Texas A&M. The Sooners’ 466 first-half yards were the fifth-most in school history.
The two teams combined for 863 yards in the first half, the most nationwide since 2013.
While Oklahoma’s offense was clicking, it’s defense was struggling. The Golden Hurricane passed for 274 yards in the first half and didn't commit a turnover.
Oklahoma, which played its 100th home game under head coach Bob Stoops, remained unbeaten against Tulsa since 1996, when the Golden Hurricane won its only game against the Sooners since World War II.
Tulsa (2-1) lost for the first time under new coach Philip Montgomery, whose offense gave Oklahoma its first true look of what life could be like playing Big 12 Conference spread offenses.
