WACO, Texas — Oklahoma wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias may be preparing a spinoff of the “Click it or Ticket” seatbelt campaign for his No. 1-ranked Sooners.

After OU sped to a big early lead Saturday against Baylor, Iglesias got almost giddy about his offense.

“We're clickin' and winnin',” Iglesias said.

Buckle up, Sooner fans, this could become a thrill-ride of a season.

And the next turn is a doozy: Red River rival Texas, in the Cotton Bowl.

The Sooners, now 5-0, refused to allow Baylor to create any upset stomachs, riding their fast-break offense to a 28-0 first quarter lead, most of it through the air with quarterback Sam Bradford spinning six completions into 153 yards.

Manny Johnson, coming off the best single-game receiving outing in OU history, scored the game's first touchdown on the Sooners' third snap – a 53-yard streak for the score. Iglesias would haul in a 42-yard touchdown grab later, on his way to a six-catch, 133-yard day.

As for Bradford, it was another efficiently bold passing game: 23-of-31 for 372 yards and the two long touchdowns. Overall, the Sooners totaled 594 yards and 32 first downs.

“Any time we get the ball on offense, we plan to score,” Johnson said. “I think we're looking good.”
