COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) -- Sam Bradford threw touchdown passes to four different receivers, Chris Brown ran for three scores and No. 6 Oklahoma started fast again and routed Texas A&M 66-28 on Saturday.

DeMarco Murray, Matt Clapp, Ryan Broyles and Juaquin Iglesias had TD catches and Bradford had a touchdown run for the Sooners (9-1, 5-1 Big 12), who set a single-game scoring record for an opponent at Kyle Field.

The Sooners have scored 231 points in four games since a 45-35 loss to Texas. Their defense was equally impressive in this one, holding the Aggies (4-6, 2-4) to 26 rushing yards and forcing four turnovers.

Cyrus Gray scored on a 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and set an A&M record with 261 kick return yards. But receiving lots of kickoffs was bad news for the Aggies, who were held to 278 total yards and dropped to 2-5 at home this season.

The Sooners have always struggled at Kyle Field and an unranked A&M team beat No. 1 Oklahoma 30-26 here in 2002. But Oklahoma had no problems in this one, leading 38-14 at halftime and 66-21 after three quarters.

Bradford completed 22 of 33 passes for 320 yards and tied a school record with his eighth 300-yard game of the season. Murray rushed for 123 yards and Brown ran for 117 against the Big 12's second-worst rushing defense.

Oklahoma outscored its first nine opponents 180-27 in the first quarter and needed only 90 seconds to score on the Aggies.

Murray broke a 70-yard run on the Sooners' second play from scrimmage and Bradford scrambled for a 15-yard touchdown with 13:31 left in the quarter. Oklahoma scored on its first possession for the ninth time in 10 games.

The Aggies went three-and-out on their first series and Murray caught Bradford's 35th touchdown pass of the season with 8:05 left in the first quarter.

On Oklahoma's next series, Bradford found Jermaine Gresham for a 23-yard gain to the A&M 22 and Brown scored with 5:44 remaining in the quarter.
