Freshman Joe MIxon had his best game of the season as well, rushing for over 150 yards and two touchdowns, he was able to show off his impressive speed and agility.

The Sooners defeated Texas Tech in Norman this past weekend, 63-27. Oklahoma travels to Lawrence, Kansas this weekend to meet up with the Jayhawks on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m.

Perine said he and RB Joe Mixon were able to find holes easily, with adjustments here and there, in order to find the end zone.

Perine said the Sooners “just did a great job”.
