— Oklahoma beat Texas Tech 38-30 Saturday night on Owen Field to improve to 7-1 on the season.

Here's a look at what players and coaches had to say after the game:

Oklahoma defensive coordinator Mike Stoops, on playing with inexperienced linebackers: “It doesn't get much tougher from a defensive perspective when you're playing with three freshmen right in the middle of your line. There aren't many people in America doing that. To beat a team of that caliber says a lot about those kids, and it says a lot about our team and our depth.”

Texas Tech sophomore linebacker Branden Jackson, on OU's 97-yard drive: “As a defense, we pride ourselves on winning third down. That's what we call ‘money down,' and today, we didn't get paid.”

Oklahoma senior center Gabe Ikard, on the run game: “We ran power a lot. I don't know how many times we ran it, but we ran it over and over and over again. Had a lot of success with it, whether it was Blake (Bell) or Damien (Williams) or Brennan (Clay) or Roy (Finch), all those guys had quality carries, and I thought we controlled the line of scrimmage pretty well.”
