Oklahoma makes case to reclaim No. 1
No. 3 Oklahoma made a case to reclaim that top ranking with a Red River Rivalry rout.
Then No. 1 LSU showed that it was, indeed, a worthy No. 1.
The Sooners smoked No. 11 Texas 55-17, ripping up their heated Big 12 rivals by Landry Jones and a defense that scored three touchdowns.
Texas came to the State Fair in Dallas undefeated but not yet tested by a ranked team. The Longhorns, with their inexperienced quarterback combination of David Ash and Case McCoy, couldn’t up with Jones and his talented receivers.
All-American Ryan Broyles had 9 catches for 122 yards.
In Baton Rouge, La., LSU had little trouble with a Florida offense playing with a freshman quarterback who had never taken a snap in a college game.
It was the second straight week Florida was pounded by an SEC West heavweight. The Gators were trounced by Alabama 38-10 last week.
LSU took over as the No. 1 team in the country two weeks ago, jumping past preseason No. 1 Oklahoma.
No. 2 Alabama, which played Vanderbilt later Saturday, jumped the Sooners last week, leaving Oklahoma No. 3.
The Sooners might win back some of that support when the AP poll comes out Sunday.
No. 1 LSU 41, No. 17 Florida 11
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) _ Spencer Ware rushed for 109 yards and two scores and each of LSU’s quarterbacks passed for touchdowns.
Jarrett Lee gave the Tigers (6-0, 3-0 SEC) the lead for good on their second offensive play, hitting Rueben Randle deep over the middle for a 46-yard touchdown. Jordan Jefferson used a jump pass to Mitch Joseph for another score.
