Baker Mayfield completed 19-of-20 passes for 329 yards and three touchdowns in last week's 56-7 season-opening victory over UTEP and the senior quarterback needs another big effort against the Buckeyes to give new coach Lincoln Riley his second win.

Baker Mayfield ran the Oklahoma flag to midfield at Ohio Stadium, planted it in the center of Ohio State's logo and celebrated with his teammates.

If you are on the go, you can still watch every down on your cell phone, tablet, PC or any other handheld device by downloading the WatchESPN app. Las Vegas oddsmakers have the Buckeyes listed as 7.5 point favorites with 63 set as the over/under total point number.

Oklahoma notes: The Sooners have three Ohioans on the roster: linebacker Emmanuel Beal, of Everest High School in Columbus; offensive lineman Alex Dalton, of Troy; and walk-on long snapper Kasey Kelleher, of Woodridge High School in Peninsula.

Oklahoma 31, Ohio State 13: The Sooners scored on a 3-yard pass from Mayfield to senior receiver Jordan Smallwood on a 27-yard drive in the middle of the fourth quarter. He was 17-of-32 passing for 226 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.




Ohio State struggled before pulling away from IN for a 49-21 victory IN its opener on August 31 as freshman J.K. Dobbins emerged with 181 yards rushing IN his collegiate debut with injured starter Mike Weber unavailable.

Even more entertaining than watching MI play is watching Ohio State fans watching MI. Ohio State's transition to offensive coordinator Kevin Wilson hasn't gone as smooth through two weeks. "Even the times we tried to go fast, there wasn't a lot to it".

The Sooners didn't slow down in the second half, scoring on a 10-yard pass to freshman running back Trey Sermon. "It's part of the system and a group that have to get better".

Mike Stoops received a pre-game hug from his brother Bob. "We had some plays we missed".

"We'll be disappointed if this is the highlight of our season", Riley said. "But obviously a great win and one that's very special to us". The players on the field are going to make the difference in this game. This didn't look like a team that will contend, but the same thing was said after the loss to Virginia Tech in 2014. "We had a good turnout in South Bend, Indiana, and we had a good turnout in Tallahassee, Florida, so I don't know why this would be any different".
