One week after managing just a field goal in a 10-3 loss at Nebraska, the Sooners exploded for a season scoring high Saturday to pummel Texas A&M, 65-10.
But the big question is, can the Sooners do it in Lubbock?
We knew OU could put up the points at Owen Field.
In five home games, the Sooners have scored 64, 45, 33, 42 and now 65.
But whether OU has turned the corner offensively won't be determined until next Saturday, when the Sooners play at Texas Tech.
"We still haven't shown we can go on the road and play with composure like we can at home," said offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson, whose unit has scored more than 20 points only once away from Norman. "And we can't move our stadium there, either."
Saturday's performance was certainly uplifting.
After a slow start, the Sooners got rolling with four touchdowns in the second quarter, then scored touchdowns on two of their first three possessions in the third.
Freshman quarterback Landry Jones bounced back off his five-interception outing by passing for a career-high 392 yards to go along with five touchdowns.
DeMarco Murray finished with arguably his finest performance of the year with 223 all-purpose yards and two scores.
All told, OU gained 640 yards of offense.
But perhaps the most encouraging turnaround statistic from last week was red-zone offense.
After bumbling away numerous opportunities to score inside Nebraska territory thanks to penalties, turnovers and overall poor execution — the major reason why OU only had three points last weekend — OU scored on six of seven red-zone possessions against the Aggies.
And five of those were touchdowns.
"We had that attitude, when we got in the scoring zone, we were determined to convert," said center Ben Habern. "We moved the ball against Nebraska. But couldn't move the ball in the scoring zone. That was a point of emphasis this week. We wanted to keep being physical in the scoring zone, don't commit the penalties and stay confident."
Confident the Sooners were. But being confident at home against Texas A&M is no reason to crown yourself king.
The Sooners' offensive output was against no Wrecking Crew.
Texas A&M owns the worst defense in the Big 12. And the Aggie special teams gifted wrapped a pair of OU touchdowns by fumbling two returns in their own territory.
"Playing at home helps," Habern admitted. "When we go on the road in a tough environment, like Texas Tech, we have to punch it in."
Said Jones, "We have to go out there and play smart. We can't have the penalties or turnovers on the road. That will kill us.
"We played a lot smarter tonight."
We already knew the Sooner offense could play smart at home.
But can they do it away from Norman?
"It's one last chance to see if we've matured through the year," Wilson said. "Or if we're the same cast of characters.
"It will be a test that will show what kind of team we are."
