No. 17 Oklahoma upends Texas Tech 41-20
OKLAHOMA 41, TEXAS TECH 20

By BETSY BLANEY
Associated Press

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops wasn't surprised
quarterback Landry Jones bounced back for the No. 17 Sooners
after a loss two weeks ago.



"Landry's an excellent quarterback, and I thought just overall
we had a good rhythm," Stoops said after Jones threw two
touchdowns in a 41-20 win over Texas Tech on Saturday. "Our
receivers did a great job coming open, catching the ball."



Blake Bell ran for two scores to help the Sooners avenge a home
loss to the Red Raiders last season.



Jones said the loss to Kansas State two weeks ago motivated him
some.



"But you've just got to realize what kind of player you are and
realize what you're capable of and kind of silence the outside
and not really listen to what's going on around you," he said.
"Just realize who you are and go out there and play the way you
think you're capable of playing."



The win was crucial for Oklahoma to remain in the conversation
for the Big 12 title.



Both of Jones' touchdown passes went for 13 yards - one each to
Justin Brown and Kenny Stills. The one to Stills, in the second
quarter, was the 100th career touchdown for Jones.



Bell, in at quarterback, scored his touchdowns from a yard out.



Javon Harris put the game out of reach midway through the third
quarter when he returned an interception 46 yards for a TD to
put the Sooners (3-1, 1-1) up 38-13.



Stoops said running the ball helped set up some play-action
passes for Jones.



"The line protected him," he said. "He slipped out of some
things that helped, which some people questioned two weeks ago
if that was a hindrance. And obviously, all through the year
it's going to help him."



The Red Raiders had their worst defensive performance this year,
giving up 380 total yards after coming in ranked No. 1 in the
nation.



Seth Doege was 22 of 36 for 203 yards and had three
interceptions for Texas Tech (4-1, 1-1).



The win was sweet for the Sooners, who lost 41-38 to the Red
Raiders last season - a defeat that broke Oklahoma's 39-game win
streak in Norman.



"Defensively we played a better football team," Texas Tech coach
Tommy Tuberville said.



It was the first time the Sooners won in Lubbock since 2003 and
also upped their record to 19-0 in games following a loss going
back to 2004. They lost two weeks ago at home 24-19 to Kansas
State. OU also avoided having back-to-back Big 12 losses under
Stoops.



"We just dug ourselves a hole we couldn't get out of,"
Tuberville said. "Their back was against the wall. They already
had a loss, and we got their best shot and weren't able to
respond."



Harris got his second interception of the season and a touchdown
in the third quarter when Doege threw his third pick of the day.
The ball was tipped in the secondary and Harris ran 46 yards for
the score to put the Sooners up 38-13.



OU went up 31-13 early in the third quarter on a 1-yard run by
Bell. The Sooners got the ball after Texas Tech failed to get a
first down on a fourth-and-5 play from the OU 36. Doege got
sacked for a 10-yard loss by Frank Shannon and the Sooners took
over from their own 46.



In the first half, Oklahoma's offensive line gave Jones ample
time to pass. He completed 10 of 14 passes for 121 yards in the
second quarter after completing just six passes for 54 yards in
the first.



Oklahoma extended its lead to 24-13 off Doege's second
interception. Safety Aaron Colvin grabbed the ball out of the
air near the line of scrimmage and returned it to Texas Tech's
41. The Sooners drive stalled at the 16 and the Sooners had to
settle for a field goal.



Jones got his 100th career touchdown pass on OU's previous
possession when he found Kenny Stills in far corner of the end
zone for a 13-yard touchdown that put the Sooners up 21-13



OU missed out on a scoring opportunity in the first quarter when
a pass from Doege was tipped and intercepted by Jamarkus
McFarland at the Red Raiders' 17. McFarland, a tackle, ran 13
yards to the 4 before Doege hit him and he fumbled. Texas Tech
receiver Tyson Williams recovered the ball and the Red Raiders
resumed their drive.



Texas Tech got only a 35-yard field goal out of that possession
to take a 10-7 early in the second quarter.
