There are numbers in Texas Longhorns’ huge win over the Oklahoma Sooners

It seems that the Oklahoma Sooners might be down badly. They were smashed in the 2022 edition of Red River Showdown by Texas Longhorns in the 2022 version of the Red River Showdown.

This loss of 49 points comes just a month after the Sooners fell by 30 points in TCU’s TCU Horned Frogs. Oklahoma is now 3-3 , after having started 3-0. They have conceded more than 40 points in all of its defeats.

In the past of the rivalry generally that the Sooners that have made huge in Dallas. They’ve scored more than 60 points in a game against Texas 3 times in the last decade. But Saturday, it was all Longhorns. Texas QB Quinn Ewers, who had been out since suffering an injury in the game against Alabama on Week 2 returned to the field with a huge performance. He completed his throws to 289 yards, and scored four touchdowns.

Here’s a look at some of the major numbers from the game between Texas and OU:

49 The 49 points are the highest they’ve scored by the Longhorns during the game. This is also Texas the biggest margin of victory against Oklahoma. The previous record was 33 points, which was set in 1941 and in 2005.

30 after losing by 55-24 last week, and 49-0 the week before, Oklahoma has lost its last two games by 30 or more points at the beginning of its history. It was also the 23rd time Oklahoma was defeated by 30 points or more.

311 Last game Oklahoma lost occurred on in November. 7 the 7th of November, 1998. The loss on Saturday ended the record of three11 consecutive games played by Oklahoma that were not held scoreless. Texas was last shut out of Oklahoma in 1965.

In 167, Oklahoma has scored an offensive touchdown over 167 consecutive games. This was the longest current period in FBS. This is a vast improvement from the offensive powerful OU was in the past seasons. The Sooners have produced two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks over the past six seasons.

1945: Loss that occurred on Saturday is now the biggest losing shutout ever to a shutout in OU history. It replaces a loss of 47-0 against Oklahoma State in 1945.

Texas’s offense scored 595 yards total against a pathetic OU defense. Texas defense kept the Sooners to only 195 yards.

267: Bijan Robinson the Longhorns star run-back, has racked up across Oklahoma over the last two seasons, running 3 touchdowns and 267 yards. He scored 130 yards Saturday and plenty of space to run. Of those 130 yards 86 were completed before contact.

9. Ewers received little criticism from Sooners. He was sacked on 9 of 33 drops. The quarterback completed seven of eight passes in the face of pressure for 67 yards , and an TD. With plenty in time for throwing, Ewers had the ability to throw in the downfield. Ewers was 9-of-14 with passes that went 10 or more yards downfield, resulting in 3 scores and 168 yards. It’s tied for sixth place in the number of completed passes in a game by an Texas QB in the last 10 seasons.

2014. Texas Defense was exceptional. The first time that OU was held to under 250 yards total since the start of 2014. The Sooners only completed nine passes with 39 yards. They were down to 32 at halftime, which was their lowest since 2014. It was also the time prior to when Lincoln Riley was hired to lead the offense at OU. The Longhorns recorded three sacks, and they intercepted two passes on Saturday.

3-3 The Sooners have the worst record over six games since 2009. The three consecutive losses are an unbeaten losing streak of Oklahoma Sooners in the last decade, dating back to 1998. The Sooners lost five consecutive games in the same season as well. It was also the only time OU did not finish under .500.
