|Oklahoma Team Notes|
With the 62-6 win, Oklahoma improved to 815-304-53 all-time and 133-31 under head coach Bob Stoops.
The OU offense scored 62 points, its 16th time to eclipse the 60-point plateau under Stoops. It was the first time the Sooners scored 60 or more since their 65-10 win over Texas A&M in 2009.
The Sooner offense eclipsed 600 yards of total offense for the 39th time in program history with a season-high 655 yards, the fifth best total under Stoops.
OU's defense forced four turnovers, its highest total since recovering three fumbles and one interception in the 2010 Big 12 Championship Game against Nebraska.
The Sooners had two receivers with 100-plus yards for the 10th time in program history (eighth under Stoops). Jaz Reynolds (141) and Ryan Broyles (109) are the first duo to reach 100 each since Broyles (170) and Cameron Kenney (154) crossed 100-yard receiving in the 2011 Fiesta Bowl win over Connecticut.
Oklahoma scored 21 points in the third quarter in a span of 3:26 while running just three offensive plays. Broyles and Reynolds had receiving touchdowns in OU's initial second-half possessions and then Tom Wort recovered a fumble for OU's first defensive touchdown of the season.
Four Sooners made their first starts of the season against Ball State. RB Dominique Whaley and WR Jaz Reynolds made their first career starts. Left guard Stephen Good made his first start since the 2010 Florida State game and FS Sam Proctor made his first start since 2009 vs. Texas A&M.

Broyles set the Big 12 career receptions record with his 304th catch in the third quarter on a six-yard reception. He tied it earlier in the quarter with a 64-yard touchdown reception. The 64-yard reception was the longest of the season for Broyles and the fourth TD in his career to total 50 or more yards. He finished with two touchdowns, the 10th game of his career with multiple receiving TDs.
Broyles posted 109 yards receiving, the 20th time he has reached triple digits. Broyles extended his streak of receptions to 43 consecutive games.
Jefferson recorded three interceptions in the second quarter and tied a record for most interceptions in a game with eight other Sooners (since NCAA began recording the statistic in 1937). Jefferson is the first to accomplish the feat since J.T. Thatcher in 2000 against Kansas at home. The other Sooners to have three picks in a game include Darnell Walker (1992), Bud Hebert (1979), Randy Hughes (1974), Steve Barrett (1967), Jerry Tubbs (1955), Darrell Royal (1947) and Jack Jacobs (1941). The unofficial OU record belongs to Dale Arbuckle, who was credited five interceptions vs. SMU in 1925.
Jefferson is the fourth current Sooner to have at least two interceptions in a game, and second this season with Javon Harris (vs. Florida State). In 2010, Jamell Fleming had two picks at Texas A&M and in 2008, Travis Lewis had two picks at Kansas State.
Landry Jones' 425 passing yards was the fifth highest total of his career and the sixth time he has eclipsed the 400-yard benchmark. Jones owns six of OU's 10 400-yard passing games.
Jones entered the game with five touchdown passes and threw for five tonight. He has four games with five or more TDs, including the school record of six against Tulsa in 2009.
Jaz Reynolds had a career-long 62-yard reception in the second quarter and 141 total receiving yards, capping a personal-best game. Reynolds' previous best total was from one 57-yard reception against Texas Tech in 2009.
