Here is a look at Oklahoma's 48-10 win over Iowa State by the numbers:

0: Points for OU in the first quarter. The Sooners have just 33 first-quarter points all season. Fourteen of those points came against Notre Dame.

2: 100-yard rushers for OU (Damien Williams 128, Trevor Knight 123), for the first time since the 2008 Big 12 title game against Missouri (Chris Brown, Mossis Madu).

3: Sooners with TD runs of at least 50 yards (Williams 69, Brennan Clay 63, Knight 56), for the first time since Kansas State 1988 (Eric Mitchel, Charles Thompson, Mike Gaddis).

5: Career runs of at least 60 yards for Damien Williams, who had a 69-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.

91: Length of Jalen Saunders' second-quarter punt return. Only Darrell Royal (96 yards) and Eddie Hinton (93) have longer punt returns in OU history.

405: OU rushing yards, the most since gaining 411 against Louisville in 1997.
