Nov. 8, 2003 – Oklahoma 77, Texas A&M 0

This was the kind of game in which former Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer would have jested, “Let’s hang a hundred on ’em.” Texas A&M hardly put up a fight in this one. The Sooners were 9-0 and ranked No. 1 going into this early November game. The Aggies hardly resembled the team that had derailed OU’s conference championship hopes with a 30-26 victory the year before.

Oklahoma controlled the ball for 37 minutes in the game to just 23 for visiting Texas A&M. The Sooners scored 77 points in just three quarters, scoring on 10 of their first 11 possessions and totaling 639 yards of offense. As impressive as the Sooner offense was in this game, the defensive effort was even better. The Texas A&M offense managed just 54 yards of offense for the entire game (22 rushing and 32 passing).

It was the widest margin of victory for an Oklahoma team since a similar 77-0 pasting of Missouri in 1986. Conversely for Texas A&M, it was the Aggies worst loss in school history.

OU quarterback Jason White tied a school record throwing five touchdown passes in the first half. At the time, the 639 yards of offense generated by the Sooners was the most by an OU team under Bob Stoops in his first five seasons as head coach.

Texas A&M actually had more penalty yards in the game (63) than yards on offense (54) and more punts (12) than first downs (3). The Aggies didn’t cross their own 40-yard line the entire game.

Oklahoma played mostly reserves in the final quarter with the game far and away in hand. “It was an odd situation to be in,” Sooner head coach Bob Stoops told the reporters after the game and thereafter cited in an ESPN.com article. “I believe in being decent to people.”
