In the space of a week, the Oklahoma football season went from the lowest lows to the highest highs. After the Red River debacle, many fans wondered how Oklahoma’s mental state would be as they prepared to face the well-coached Wildcats in Manhattan, a team with, just like Texas, a run-first philosophy.

It took only a minute and four seconds for the Sooners to cast away all doubt as they drove 75 yards in five plays to take a quick 7-0 lead.

Oklahoma never trailed in this game and utterly dominated as the Sooners cruised to a 55-0 demolition of the same team that put up 45 points against vaunted TCU.
