Oklahoma, Texas Tech in record-setting affair

  Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes (5) set the FBS record for total yards in a game with 819.

If college football fans did not get a chance to tune into the matchup between No. 16 Oklahoma and Texas Tech in Week 8 they missed a major display of offensive firepower.

In a game that ended with a 66-59 victory for the Sooners, Oklahoma and Texas Tech combined for the most total yards (1,708) ever in a Big 12 conference game. The two teams also accounted for 78 first downs, tying an NCAA record.

But the stat line of the night goes to Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes who tallied an FBS record 819 total yards in the loss to Oklahoma, while also managing to tie the single-game game record for passing yards (734).

Oklahoma’s quarterback Baker Mayfield got the win, which is most important, and had a heck of a ballgame too with more than 500 yards passing and seven touchdowns. But, despite the score, many fans are likely left gawking at Mahomes’ ridiculous numbers.

It just goes to show that college football will surprise you week-in and week-out.
