The Oklahoma Sooners offense got back on track after two straight weeks of struggling against the Kansas Jayhawks and Oklahoma State Cowboys on the road. The Sooners scored 57 points in the losses, but more than that, mental miscues and turnovers plagued Oklahoma during their two-game losing streak.
They had been averaging 29.3 just points per game since the bye week. But on Saturday they put up 59 points and 644 yards on the West Virginia Mountaineers. It was a complete and well-balanced performance as the Sooners threw for 423 yards and rushed for 221 yards.
Jalil Farooq spoke about the offense getting back on track. “It felt good to get back out there,” Farooq said. “Just being out there, clicking. Things coming together felt great to be out there with my brothers.”
Farooq individually didn’t have a great day. He had four touches for 59 yards, but Drake Stoops and Nic Anderson both had more than 100 yards. Farooq also played a part in Stoops’ 60-yard touchdown catch as he helped pull him into the end zone.
Neither defense should pose much of a threat to the Sooners’ offense as long as they don’t shoot themselves in the foot like they did vs. the Jayhawks and Cowboys.
