The No. 3-ranked Sooners scored a field goal on their opening possession, which seemed at the time to be a small victory for the TCU defense keeping them out of the end zone. But on the 11th-ranked Horned Frogs’ first play from scrimmage, running back Kyle Hicks fumbled and Sooners’ Caleb Kelly returned it 18 yards for a score to put Oklahoma up 10-0.
Heisman candidate Baker Mayfield led the Sooners on an 81-yard scoring drive to put Oklahoma up 17-0. Mark Andrews caught a five-yard pass from Mayfield for the touchdown.
Mayfield completed 10 of 14 passes for 100 yards in the first quarter.
The Sooners have outgained the Frogs 132 to 69.
