Oklahoma went through hard times ten months ago, when the team was 8-5 and lost a non-New Year’s Day bowl by five touchdowns. The team had gone two years without winning the Big 12, this was something coach Bob Stoops had never done in 16 seasons in Norman.

Stoops has a great legacy as a coach, he passed Hall of Famer Barry Switzer for the most wins in Sooners history. But after a rough patch at a time when success in college football seems easier to gain and harder to hold onto, is it possible for Stoops and Oklahoma to regain their status.

Well, according to Stoops it is.

“We’re one of those teams that has a chance at everything,” Stoops said, after No. 12 Oklahoma’s 44-34 victory against No. 6 then-undefeated Baylor.

“They’ve kind of whipped us up and down the field two years in a row,” said quarterback Baker Mayfield, “that’s huge for us to come in here and get a victory.”

Mayfield, who won Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year in 2013,then left Lubbock and joined Oklahoma. This is the team he cheered for as a child, and where he might become the best quarterback in college football.

“There’s something special about him,” Stoops said. “He just has that tenacity, that toughness, that competitiveness and talent. A bunch of coaches missed the talent. He’s got an incredible arm. He has a great ability to be athletic out of the pocket when he doesn’t look to be that athletic. If you timed him in the 40, you probably wouldn’t think he was that athletic. But he just finds a way.”

During Saturday’s game he threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 76 yards and another score.
