• Oklahoma outgained Baylor 312-213 in the first half (12.0 yards per play to 5.3).

• Abdul Adams' 99-yard touchdown run was the longest play from scrimmage in school history, breaking the previous record of 96 yards (Jeff Frazier run in 1995; Buck McPhail run in 1951).

• Adams' TD also marked just the 11th 99-yard rush in NCAA history (last was by Louisiana Tech's Kenneth Dixon in 2014).

• Adams has already set a career high with 104 rushing yards. His TD was the first of his career on the ground.

• Baker Mayfield is 9-for-13 passing for 202 yards and two touchdowns. He has attempted 146 straight passes without an interception (17 TD passes in that stretch).

• Mayfield has thrown a touchdown pass in 30 straight games, extending his own school record. He's thrown at least two TD passes in 17 consecutive games, tying Sam Bradford's Big 12 record.

• Jeff Badet recorded a career-long 70-yard return on the opening kickoff.

• Dimitri Flowers recorded his first career multi-touchdown game with a 52-yard reception and a three-yard run. He has scored three of OU's last five TDs in Waco.
