Oklahoma Mauls Tulsa, 47-14

We saw what we expected to see from a high powered Oklahoma Sooners offense that brought back Heisman Trophy candidate Landry Jones at QB, Ryan Broyles at receiver, and loads more starters. The Sooners piled up 663 yards and 47 points, while dominating the clock to the tune of 37 minutes of possession.

Jones threw for 375 yards and a touchdown before his backup Drew Allen finished things off. Dominique Whaley led the way on the ground, with 137 yards and four touchdowns. Brennan Clay also scored and added 64 yards, as Oklahoma finished with 264 yards rushing. Broyles led the way in the receiving game with 14 catches for 158 yards.

Defense was a bit of a different story for the Sooners. They allowed only garbage time scores at the end of each half, but more worrying was the 400 yards of offense the Golden Hurricane managed, including long pass plays and a decent ground game that totaled 129 yards on 31 carries.

It was never a game really, but it will serve as a decent warm-up for the nation’s top ranked team as they have two more weeks to prepare for their showdown with Florida State in Tallahassee on September 17.
