Oklahoma continues to post ridiculous first-quarter numbers.

The Sooners led 21-0after the first quarter on Saturday at Texas A&M, leaving Kyle Field rather dormant.

"We knew this was a loud stadium and if we came out and jumped on them early, they’d quiet down," OU quarterback Sam Bradford said.

Sooners offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson said, "We're executing pretty good. I was kind of concerned on the road. Could we hear and could we still play fast? We would have to slow down and talk a little bit more. That was key to get off to a good start and keep that crowd of it a little bit."
