Jones, D TDs lift No. 3 OU past No. 11 Texas 55-17

DALLAS (AP) - Landry Jones threw three touchdown passes, Dominique Whaley ran 64 yards for another touchdown and the Oklahoma defense scored three more touchdowns, carrying the No. 3 Sooners to a 55-17 victory over No. 11 Texas on Saturday.

Having slipped from first to second to third over successive weeks, Oklahoma (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) stomped its top rival almost as easily as it did lowly Ball State the previous week. The Sooners wound up with their most lopsided win in this series since 2003, when they won by a series-record 52 points.

The Longhorns (4-1, 1-1) couldn't get anything going on offense. Their only touchdowns came on a kickoff return late in the first half, and a pass in the final minutes when they were down by 45.
