(Undated-AP) -- Oklahoma beat Texas A&M by 77 points last Saturday, four weeks after the Aggies pounded Baylor by 63.

So the Sooners' matchup against the Bears this Saturday looks like a mismatch.

Baylor coach Guy Morriss says he hopes his team doesn't enter the game scared, and that his players learn from it. He says stopping the Sooners is Baylor's problem, not OU's.

Top-ranked Oklahoma is a 53-point favorite, which doesn't seem outlandish after looking at the win over the Aggies and some other numbers.

Oklahoma allowed only 54 yards to A&M, while Baylor has scored only one offensive touchdown in three games. The Sooners also lead the nation in scoring at 48 points per game and have scored at least 50 a school-record six times. The Bears are fifth-worst in Division 1-A, allowing 38 points per game.

And with a chance to clinch a spot in the Big 12 title game OU coach Bob Stoops says the Sooners aren't going to be overconfident.
