6: Defensive school records for OU, including outright records for most touchdowns (three), most tackles-for-loss yards (113) and most sack yards (84). Tied records were fumble-return TDs (two), sacks (eight) and total tackles for loss (17).

9: Takeaways the last two games for OU, including five vs. Texas.

42: Defensive touchdowns for OU in the Bob Stoops era.

43: Bob Stoops' victories over ranked teams, matching Barry Switzer's school record. Stoops is 43-17; Switzer was 43-21-4.

143: Return yards on fumble and interceptions. But that's not an OU record; OU had 167 interception return yards alone against Duke in the 1959 Orange Bowl.
