DALLAS, Texas (Sports Network) - Blake Bell ran for four touchdowns in the first half, Landry Jones threw for 321 yards with two scores and the 13th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners annihilated the 15th-ranked Texas Longhorns, 63-21, at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.
Jones completed 21-of-37 passes with an interception for the Sooners (4-1, 2-1 Big 12), who have won two in a row since a loss to Kansas State on Sept. 22.
Damien Williams carried the ball 22 times for 167 yards and a touchdown for Oklahoma, which racked up 343 yards on the ground. Trey Millard caught five passes for 119 yards and a score.
David Ash connected on 13-of-29 passes for 113 yards and two interceptions for the Longhorns (4-2, 1-2), who have lost two straight games since starting the season 4-0. Case McCoy completed 5-of-8 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns.
Oklahoma jumped out to a 27-2 lead before Texas recorded a first down.
The Sooners started the game with an impressive 14-play, 75-yard drive. Trey Metoyer caught a 14-yard pass on 3rd-and-8 and Bell ran for five yards on 3rd-and-1 to keep the march going. Faced with a 4th-and-1 from the Texas 11, Bell ran for three yards. He followed that up with an 8-yard rushing TD. However, Texas blocked the extra point and Quandre Diggs went the other way for a two-point defensive conversion.
Oklahoma started from its own 5-yard line with 4 1/2 minutes left. On the second play, Williams found a hole on the right side and sprinted 95 yards down the sideline for a touchdown. The extra point was good this time around, making it a 13-2 contest.
The Sooners continued to roll on offense, bridging the first and second quarters with an 11-play, 62-yard drive. Millard caught a 12-yard pass and ripped off a 15-yard run. Kenny Stills added a 15-yard catch to move the ball into the red zone. Bell capped the march with a 1-yard TD run.
On the first play of Oklahoma's next drive, Millard caught a pass at the line of scrimmage and hurdled over a defender along the right sideline. The 73-yard play set up Bell's 1-yard TD run, making it a 27-2 game with 9:41 left in the half.
Texas finally got a first down on its ensuing possession, when Mike Davis caught a 31-yard pass down the left sideline. But on the very next play, Ash was intercepted by Aaron Colvin.
Things got worse for the Longhorns after a punt from Oklahoma was downed at the 1-yard line. Joe Bergeron was then tackled in his own end zone for a safety.
Bell's fourth touchdown of the first half -- another 1-yard score -- made it 36-2 at the break.
The Longhorns finally scored a touchdown early in the second half. Carrington Byndom picked off Jones and went 28 yards the other way for a score. Anthony Fera missed the extra point.
Michael Hunnicutt's 36-yard field goal and Millard's 25-yard TD catch gave Oklahoma a 46-8 lead after three quarters.
The Sooners outscored Texas by a 17-13 margin in the fourth stanza.
