- The loss is Oklahoma’s second of the season. Both losses came at home, making it the first team since 1998 that the Sooners lost two home games in one season.
- Oklahoma’s loss to independent Notre Dame ends an 18-game win streak against non-conference opponents.
Notre Dame’s Cierre Wood ran down the middle for 62 yards during the first quarter for a touchdown. Oklahoma’s defense has now allowed just three first half touchdowns this season.
Oklahoma wide receiver Kenny Stills had seven receptions – which gave him 167 catches in his career. He is now tied for fifth place with DeMarco Murray on the career receptions list in program history.
Jalen Saunders made a lot of history that matched a famous wide receiver with the name of Ryan Broles. Saunders broke OU’s record for most receptions in a single quarter when he made eight receptions — previously shared by Eddie Hinton and Broyles. Saunders’ 15 total receptions also ties with Broyles for the most in a game, while his 181 total yards is the most since Broyles gathered 217 yards against Kansas last year.
