COLUMBUS, OH - SEPTEMBER 09: Baker Mayfield /

The Oklahoma-Ohio State showdown a year ago in Norman produced a combined 69 points, with the Sooners on the short end by 21 points.

This year’s rematch in Columbus flipped the switch, as the Sooners scored 31 of the 47 points scored in the game and stunned 109,000 mostly Buckeye fans in attendance, not to mention the vast majority of college football experts who predicted an Ohio State victory.

Senior quarterback Baker Mayfield has never lost in 10 true road games as the Oklahoma starting quarterback. His completion percentage in those 10 road victories is 71 percent, throwing for 3,004 yards and 35 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Overall, the former walk-on from near Austin, Texas, is 24-4 as the starting quarterback for Oklahoma.

Mayfield’s 386 passing yards in the Sooners impressive win over Ohio State represented a career best against a top-25 opponent. His three touchdown passes against the Buckeyes moved him into third place in Sooner football history with 82 total.

Here are some more notable numbers — a baker’s dozen to be precise — from Oklahoma’s eye-popping takedown of the country’s No. 2 team on Saturday:
