Shinn at 3 p.m.: Sooners manage running game better against Tech

LUBBOCK — Oklahoma's defense dominated Saturday's 41-20 victory over Texas Tech. After giving up a touchdown on Texas Tech's opening drive, the Sooners didn't allow another touchdown until the final seconds.

One of the reasons for OU's success was the pressure it put on Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege. The Sooners only sacked him twice, but they were able to force some bad throws and tip some passes.

"I thought we did a better job controlling the run game, and that enabled us to get in more pressure packages on third and longs," OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said.

The proof was in the final numbers. The Red Raiders entered Saturday's game averaging over 500 yards of total offense per game. OU held them to 360.
