Oklahoma dominated on the field today versus Texas Tech. The Sooners beat the Red Raiders 55-16 for their first Big-12 win of the season.

Prior to the game, a former Oklahoma coach took a legendary photo. Bob Stoops, head coach of the Sooners from 1999-2016, met up with three other popular figures, and not just popular in the sports world. Those three people include: DeMarco Murray, Jim Ross and Toby Keith. The four got a photo together before the game.

All popular individuals, all Oklahoma fans. It's great to see these four cheering on the Sooners together. And they had a great contest to enjoy.

The Sooners were impressive in every facet of the game on Saturday. Quarterback Jalen Hurts put together another Heisman-like performance against the Red Raiders. He completed 17-of-24 pass attempts for 415 yards and three touchdowns. Hurts also added 70 yards on the ground and one touchdown.

All-in-all, Hurts has 1,295 passing yards and 12 touchdowns through four games. He's also added 443 yards on the ground and five rushing touchdowns.

The Sooners are playing head-and-shoulders above the rest of the Big 12. A College Football Playoff selection seems likely if OU can continue to play like it has been.
