Blake Bell threw for 249 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and Damien Williams added two more scores as No. 17 Oklahoma outlasted No. 10 Texas Tech in a 38-30 win.
While the Sooners have the No. 1 pass defense in the nation, Stoops said slowing down Texas Tech will be the job of more than just the defensive unit. The offense must help as well.
Texas Tech (7-0, 4-0), which was ranked seventh in the preseason Big 12 poll, is now ranked 10th in the country and alone in first place.
A former Arlington school security guard and karate teacher has been arrested and charged with several counts of child sex abuse and child pornography.
No. 12 Baylor and 16th-ranked Texas Tech are the league’s only undefeated teams. Texas is 3-0 in the conference after starting 1-2 this season.
After a 36-20 victory over Oklahoma, the only win for McCoy and this group of Texas seniors, the tone of their final season has suddenly changed.
Case McCoy and these Texas seniors gave Mack Brown a much needed and long-awaited win over Oklahoma.
Every other program that takes itself seriously as a national power would have fired Brown by now. Most observers at this point feel like it’s one if not two years past due.

It’s been a good season for No. 12 Oklahoma running the football – a pair of 300-yard outings against Louisiana-Monroe and West Virginia and a 212-yard performance in a tough win at Notre Dame.
It has only happened five times during Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops’ 15-year tenure, but occasionally another team comes to town and beats the Sooners on their home field.
The fact that six teams got first-place votes in the preseason Big 12 poll was a sure sign that league would be unpredictable in 2013.
