The Sooners, quite literally, started the second half the way they ended the first. It was Shepard once again, who caught a 35 yard touchdown pass for his first career multi-touchdown game. Tulsa answered, but not in-kind, with a 26-yard Carl Salazar field goal. They added another three points after holding the Sooners to a punt. Watts brought the ball all the way to the OU nine yard line on the return, but the Golden Hurricane wasn’t able to find the end zone.
The Sooners answered with a field goal of their own as the game faded out into the afternoon. Before it was all said and done, Tulsa added another touchdown from a six yard Ja’Terian Douglas run. Not content to sit on their lead, OU marched down the field courtesy of a big run by Finch inside the red zone. A few plays later, Jalen Saunders caught a 25 yard touchdown pass from Bell, his fourth of the game, to make the score 44-20. Freshman Keith Ford then got his first career touchdown on a three yard run to complete the rout.
