(Saturday, October 30th)
Final Score: (11) Oklahoma 43, Colorado 10
Norman, OK (Sports Network) - Ryan Broyles set a school-record for receiving yards in a game, catching nine passes for 208 yards and three scores, as 11th- ranked Oklahoma crushed Colorado, 43-10, for the Sooners' 35th straight home victory.
Landry Jones completed 32-of-46 passes for a career-high 453 yards and four touchdowns for the Sooners (7-1, 3-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a loss at Missouri last Saturday. OU's 488 passing yards set a school record, surpassing the 468 against Kansas in 2008.
"Ryan Broyles is just spectacular and continues to be with the big plays that he's able to make," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. "He just has such a knack for going for the ball and getting open. And Landry threw some special passes really into tight coverage. Everything else was really solid."
Cody Hawkins finished 17-of-44 for 187 yards with a score for the Buffaloes (3-5, 0-4), who have lost four in a row.
"They did a great job answering what we were doing with formations and situations," Hawkins said. "I think they did a great job kind of scheming us up. It was a very tough situation for us because we were in a lot of different situations and they were answering. When we tried to throw the football down the field they were bringing a lot of heat and making us throw it short. When we did try to extend the field, I thought their defensive backs did a great job."
Jimmy Stevens kicked a 33-yard field goal midway through the first quarter for the Sooners. His 26-yard boot on the opening play of the second made it 6-0, and then the Sooners expanded their lead.
Jones hit Broyles for a 16-yard score with 11:11 left in the half before Aric Goodman split the uprights from 40 yards away for the Buffaloes.
On 3rd-and-12 on the ensuing OU possession, Broyles caught an 81-yard TD pass.
The Sooners expanded the lead to 22-3 when a blocked punt was recovered by the Buffaloes in the end zone.
A seven-yard pass from Jones to James Hanna moved the difference to 29-3 with 21 seconds left in the half.
Broyles caught a 64-yard TD pass in the opening minute of the third.
Scotty McKnight reeled in a 49-yard scoring pass from Hawkins less than two minutes later and DeMarco Murray scored on a five-yard run later in the third.
