Football

This tweet is just too true to not watch again.

After being caught on video before the game with some smack talk directed at winless Baylor , Mayfield threw three touchdowns and the third-ranked Sooners overcame the feisty Bears 49-41 Saturday night to stretch the nation’s longest winning streak to 14 games.

“You don’t realize that some teams and guys, when they get their backs up against the wall, that’s when they play their best,” Mayfield said. “I’d compare it to how we went into Ohio State week. Everybody was picking them, and nobody really cared about us. It’s the same feeling. You’ve got to expect that, and we’ve got to be more consistent.”

Asked if he respected the Bears afterward, Mayfield responded, “Absolutely.”

The Bears (0-4, 0-1) got a career-high 192 yards and three touchdowns from Mims, but a lack of running game and a porous defense cost them against the explosive Sooners (4-0, 1-0) in their Big 12 Conference opener.

Oklahoma freshman running back Trey Sermon punished the Baylor defense in the fourth quarter, scoring both of his touchdowns in the final frame while amassing 157 yards for the game.

"We say it all the time around here, all gas, no brakes. So you can never let your foot off the pedal, especially playing a team like that because they can score in a second. Doesn't matter their record or anything. It's still a high-powered offense that Baylor's had for a while. So you can never take your foot off the gas. "

And we can't forget about the defense . This was a unit that got torched through the air. One of the best pass efficiency defenses in the country coming in, Baylor proved a different test. A test that accounted for 463 yards through the air.

"We were just, our pass defense was just inconsistent the whole night," said Riley. "Sometimes it was the rush not getting there. Couple busted coverages by the backers. Couple plays in the secondary were really, I thought at times, were trying too hard to make a play and coming out of their assignment."
