DALLAS (AP) _ Some of the notable achievements in No. l0 Oklahoma's 63-14 victory over No. 11 Texas on Saturday:

_Oklahoma's 63 points are the most by either team in the 95-game series history, topping the Sooners' total in a 52-13 victory in 1973.

_The combined 77 points are a series high, topping the 75 scored in a 48-27 Oklahoma victory in 1971.

_The 49-point margin is second only to OU's 50-0 victory in 1908. This was Oklahoma's largest margin against a ranked foe.

_Quentin Griffin's six rushing touchdowns broke the school record of five held by Steve Owen (vs. Nebraska, 1968) and Jerald Moore (vs. Oklahoma State, '94).

_The Sooners' 534 yards and 28 first downs are both school-bests against the Longhorns.

_Texas set a school-worst with minus-7 yards rushing. The Longhorns had just 6 in the Big 12 championship against Nebraska last season. Their negative-27 against Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl doesn't count because it's a postseason game, but it still means UT has set a school-rushing low in three of seven games.

_Oklahoma's last victory over a foe ranked this high was in 1993 against No. 5 Texas A&M. The 5-0 start is OU's best since that season.

_Texas is in jeopardy of becoming the second team to go from No. 11 to unranked in one week. The other? The Longhorns in 1997 following a 66-3 loss to UCLA.

_This was Oklahoma's most points since a 73-3 victory against New Mexico State in 1989. It was the first time the Sooners limited a team to negative rushing yards since holding North Texas to -44 in '95.
