The Sooners' pass defense came in at No. 18 in the nation (178 yards per game) but couldn't hold back Texas Tech's passing offense, ranked second in the country.

Brandon Sharpe helped keep the Oklahoma offense out of rhythm. He entered the game second in the nation in sacks and added 2 1 / 2more Saturday.

Landry Jones was 18 of 35 for 262 yards for the Sooners.

With Texas Tech comfortably ahead at the start of the fourth quarter, Red Raiders fans and players began to hop up and down to House of Pain's "Jump Around," reciprocating what Sooners fans did at Memorial Stadium during last November's rout of the Red Raiders.

That loss ended Tech's unbeaten season and kept the Sooners ahead of Texas in the BCS standings, which helped send OU to play for the national championship against Florida.
