NORMAN, Okla. -- It's being called the biggest game of the season...

The Red Raiders saw their undefeated season crumble before them, as Sam Bradford threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns, slaughtering Texas Tech 65-21.

DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown combined to run for five more scores as the fifth-ranked Sooners brought an unceremonious end to No. 2 Texas Tech's run toward a BCS bowl or a National Championship.

Stoops, whose teams have earned him a home game winning record of over 96 percent, which will likely move his Sooners up the polls and into a bowl game.

Hear Stoops discuss his team's bye week and how he's prepared them for the challenge of Texas Tech.

Sam Bradford worked hard to avoid a repeat of last year's matchup against Tech. He suffered a concussion in the first play of the 2007 game when he was involved in a tackle following a Sooner fumble.

Watch the hit that left Bradford benched.

Bradford left the game shortly after.

Following Saturday's win, Sam Bradford furthers his name of likely candidates in the Heisman Trophy race. The quarterback could have swept the Heisman from Tech's Graham Harrell by his consistent accuracy throughout Saturday's game.

Listen to what Dean said from the stadium about the harassed Harrell and the significant numbers Bradford posted Saturday.
