True freshman J.K. Dobbins again was a bright spot for the Buckeyes, rushing for 72 yards and a touchdown, but quarterback J.T. Barrett couldn't hit the big passes when he desperately needed them to extend drives. Oklahoma defeated Ohio State 31-16.

The Buckeyes won 45-24 at Oklahoma a year ago and went on to make the College Football Playoff while the Sooners have won 11 straight since that setback.

It could've been the scene from any OU home game from the past 18 years - until the Ohio State highlight reel started rolling inside Ohio Stadium and the strands of buckeye beads draped around the necks of some fans came into focus. The Sooners managed to cover the 43-point spread in the win. He improved his record as a playcaller to 24-0 over the past three seasons when the offense scores at least 30 points. Baker Mayfield had an incredible game passing for 386 yards on 27 of 35 passing with 3 touchdowns. He's been the starting quarterback for Lincoln Riley since the head coach arrived as an offensive coordinator, and that productive combo has seen the loss of multiple key contributors only to reload each season and maintain it's place as one of the top offenses in the country.

Mike Stoops received a pre-game hug from his brother Bob.

The Sooners and Buckeyes both struggled offensively in the first half, only scoring a combined six points. "We had some plays we missed. But obviously a great win and one that's very special to us".

OSU went 44 yards in seven plays for a scorer after Parris Campbell returned the opening kickoff 56 yards to Oklahoma's 44-yard line.

Oklahoma answered with a five-play, 67-yard drive, which ended with Mayfield throwing a 36-yard touchdown pass to Dimitri Flowers to tie the game 10-10. "He played extremely well tonight, especially against a defense as good as them".

"Credit to Oklahoma", Wilson said.

"Everyone is going to want to anoint us now, but we have a long way to go", Riley said. This week we get back to normal.

According to the Associated Press, Oklahoma players downplay the revenge factor, but memories are vivid of last year's thumping at the hands of Ohio State.
