Dede Westbrook failed to nab more than 100 yards receiving for the first time in seven games, but there was no slowing down the Sooners offense otherwise in their 45-24 win over Baylor. Westbrook had four catches for 88 yards for two touchdowns.
But RB Joe Mixon came off his one-game suspension for wadding up a parking ticket ran for 124 yards and a touchdown and had five catches for 63 yards.
Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield passed for 300 yards for the sixth time this season
But also the Oklahoma defense stepped up.
Jordan Evans picked off two Baylor passes. The first one was the biggest, with the Sooners leading 14-0 but Baylor threatening with third and one from the Oklahoma 2-yard-line.
But Seth Russell’s pass wound up hitting Evans in the hands.
The Sooners responded with an 11-play, 91-yard touchdown drive to go up 21-0.
Evans’ two interceptions were the most by an Oklahoma linebacker since Travis Lewis also had two against Kansas State in 2008
It was the first time this season the Sooners have forced more than two turnovers and only the third time this year Oklahoma has forced more turnovers than it gave up.
