NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ DeMarco Murray scored four touchdowns, including a 91-yard kickoff return, as Number 4 Oklahoma beat Baylor 52-to-21 Saturday.

Oklahoma (9-1, 5-1 Big 12 Conference) hasn't lost to Baylor (3-8, 0-7) in 17 meetings. Baylor lost its seventh straight game amid reports that coach Guy Morriss would be replaced.

OU entered the game fifth in the BCS standings, and when the final score from Number 1 Ohio State's loss to Illinois appeared on the scoreboard before kickoff, the crowd roared.

Murray contributed a 25-yard first-quarter scoring run and his kickoff return, which came moments after Baylor had pulled within a touchdown late in the first half.

OU quarterback Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, two to Manuel Johnson, who caught four passes for 126 yards and had the first multiple-TD game of his career.
