Since Bob Stoops took over in 1999, Oklahoma has blown out Texas four times, including each of the last two seasons. Each rout has been a bit different. Here's a look at each of the blowouts and how they went down:
Oklahoma 63, Texas 21
How the blowout happened: The Sooner defense was dominant, not allowing a first down until the Longhorns' fifth drive. Even that momentum was short-lived as Aaron Colvin intercepted David Ash on the next play. On offense, the Sooners did a little bit of everything, setting the tone with a 14-play, 75-yard touchdown drive to start the game but breaking off a few long plays as well, including Damien Williams' 95-yard touchdown that was sprung by a Kenny Stills block near the sidelines.
When it got out of hand: When Trey Millard caught a swing pass from Landry Jones early in the second quarter and went 73 yards. While the gain was nice, what Millard had to do to get there — simultaneously hurdling one defender while delivering a jarring stiff-arm to another showed just how physically dominant the Sooners were over the Longhorns in last season's game. Three plays later, the Sooners scored to go up 27-2.
Star of the game: Blake Bell. Jones did plenty of the heavy lifting, helping the Sooners march down the field on several long drives. But it was Bell that finished most of them off. The Belldozer scored four first-half touchdowns to help OU to a 36-2 halftime lead.
Oklahoma 55, Texas 17
How the blowout happened: This one took longer to develop. Three defensive touchdowns — a Demontre Hurst interception return late in the first half and fumble returns by David King and Jamell Fleming in the second half — helped the Sooners run away with this one. OU led just 6-3 after one but 28 second-quarter points helped it take a commanding lead into halftime. The Sooners ran the ball just 19 times in the game — 13 by Dominique Whaley — as Landry Jones completed 31 passes without an interception.
When it got out of hand: After Hurst's 55-yard interception return late in the second quarter put the Sooners up 27-3, Texas got right back in the game by returning the kickoff for a touchdown. But Oklahoma needed just seven plays to drive 83 yards for a touchdown just before half, with Kenny Stills catching a 14-yard touchdown pass with 0:31 left in the second. Texas got the ball to start the second but Frank Alexander's sack of Case McCoy on third down knocked the ball free and King returned it 19 yards for a touchdown to put the Sooners up 41-10.
Star of the game: Jones. He completed 31 of his 50 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions. Jones' favorite target was Ryan Broyles, who had nine catches for 122 yards and a touchdown.
Oklahoma 65, Texas 13
How the blowout happened: The Sooners forced six Texas turnovers — three interceptions and three fumbles. Both first-quarter interceptions, one each from Chance Mock and Vince Young, led to OU touchdowns. Six different players scored for the Sooners, with only Renaldo Works scored more than one touchdown. Jason White was also very efficient, completing 17 of his 21 passes for 290 yards and four touchdowns.
When it got out of hand: In the second quarter, when Trey DiCarlo kicked three field goals, Jonathan Jackson returned an interception for a score and Will Peoples caught a touchdown pass from Jason White to turn a 14-7 game into a 37-13 blowout by halftime.
Star of the game: Mark Clayton. Clayton had a school-record 190 yards receiving on just eight catches, scoring one touchdown. Works also had a big game, with 112 yards on 15 carries, including a 54-yard touchdown run in the third.
Oklahoma 63, Texas 14
How the blowout happened: The Sooners scored touchdowns on each of their first five possessions, piling up 534 total yards, with 245 rushing yards and 275 passing yards for Josh Heupel, who is now the Sooners' co-offensive coordinator. Defensively, the Sooners were just as impressive, holding the Longhorns to just 154 total yards, including minus-7 rushing. The Sooners forced three turnovers by Texas.
When it got out of hand: It didn't take long. Quentin Griffin scored on a four-yard run 2:20 into the second quarter — his third touchdown of the day and second of the quarter — to go up 28-0. Just more than a minute later, Rocky Calmus took an interception back 41 yards for a touchdown and the rout that announced the Sooners as being back among the nation's top programs was on.
Star of the game: Quentin Griffin. Griffin didn't even top 100 yards rushing, going for 87, but he scored six times. None of Griffin's touchdowns came from longer than eight yards out. Griffin's touchdown total broke a 32-year-old school record set by Stebe Owens.
