The No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners shocked the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes, 31-16, on Saturday night at Ohio Stadium.

This is Sooners head coach Lincoln Riley’s first signature win early on in his two-game head coaching career. Riley replaced Bob Stoops when he abruptly retired in June.

Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield went 27 of 35 for 386 yards. He also had three touchdowns.

Mayfield hopes that this signature win helps him make it back to the Heisman Trophy in New York City in December. Last year’s Heisman winner Lamar Jackson used early success to get the 25-pound bronze statue.

Dimitri Flowers, who had seven receptions for 98-yards, caught a 36-yard reception. Lee Morris also had an 18-yard touchdown catch.

Trey Sermon, who had 17 carries for 62 yards, had a 10-yard touchdown reception. Sooners running back Jordan Smallwood also had a three-yard rushing touchdown.

Buckeyes quarterback J.T. Barrett struggled. He went 19 of 35 for a 183 yards, including a game-changing interception.

Freshman J.K. Dobbins had 13 carries for 72 yards. He also had a six-yard rushing touchdown.

K.J. Hill also had five receptions for 44 yards. Ohio State kicker Sean Nuernberger also made three field goals.
