COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Oklahoma’s two remaining opponents, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State, made it into the Top 10 with better-than-average defenses.

Their worthiness will be put to the test.

The Sooner scoring machine continued its Big 12 tour Saturday, demolishing Texas A&M 66-28 at Kyle Field.

"I’m really excited about what the offense is doing,” said coach Bob Stoops, whose club is averaging 62 points over the last three games. "To put it all together and play as sound as we did is great.

"Everything was just as smooth as it could be.”

Nothing is smoother than quarterback Sam Bradford, who continued his march to New York and the Heisman Trophy presentation with 320 yards passing and no interceptions.

Bradford, who came into the weekend leading the nation in touchdown passes, threw four more against the hapless Aggie defense. He also ran for another score.

"Sam Bradford couldn’t have played better,” Stoops said. "His accuracy, his poise, we couldn’t have asked for anything else.”

The bad news for Tech and OSU is that it’s no longer just about stopping Bradford and his endless supply of wide receivers.

Since being held to 48 yards rushing in a loss to Texas, OU has averaged 250 yards on the ground over its last four games, culminating with a season-high 328 yards against the Aggies.
