Here is a look at Oklahoma’s 48-16 win over La. Tech by the numbers:

* 3: Oklahoma starters who have now started at least three season openers. All of them are on the offensive line: Adam Shead, Daryl Williams and Tyler Evans.

* 4: Starters who made their first career start Saturday night – fullback Dimitri Flowers, running back Alex Ross, linebacker Jordan Evans and safety Ahmad Thomas.

* 5: Rushing touchdowns for OU, the most since scoring six against Texas in 2012.

* 22: Sterling Shepard’s spot on OU’s all-time receiving list with 1,273 yards. He moved into the spot Saturday and passed his late father, Derrick, in the process.

* 30: Plays run by Louisiana Tech in the first half.

* 31: Points scored by Oklahoma in the first half.

* 41:02: Time expired in the game before the Sooners punted.

* 43: Consecutive games won by the Sooners when leading at halftime, the second longest active streak in the nation.
