  Oklahoma Team Notes

Oklahoma's 36 first-half points were the most against Texas since 2003 while the 34-point halftime lead was the largest since leading 42-7 at halftime of the 2000 contest.
Oklahoma is 53-1 when rushing for 200 yards or more. OU had 206 rushing yards at halftime and 343 total.
The Sooners had four players with 100 or more all-purpose yards, including Damien Williams (177), Trey Millard (164), Brennan Clay (155) and Justin Brown (140).
Jaydan Bird's tackle for loss in the second half was the first safety caused by Oklahoma since a forced fumble exited the back of Baylor's end zone in a Nov. 20, 2010, matchup. It was the first defensive safety since OU's Ronnell Lewis sacked the Idaho State quarterback for two points on Sept. 12, 2009.
Oklahoma is 29-0 under Stoops with a 100-yard receiver and 100-rusher in the same game. Against Texas, Damien Williams had 167 yards while Trey Millard totaled 119 receiving yards.
OU is 73-1 when scoring 40 points or more under Stoops.
Oklahoma scored on its opening drive for the second time this season, getting in the end zone on an 8-yard run by Blake Bell.

OU is 26-2 (.929) when Jones throws two or more touchdowns in a game.
