No. 3 Sooners ride Bradford's six-TD effort past Huskies
 
 
CBSSports.com wire reports

SEATTLE -- Ho-hum. Sam Bradford threw for five more touchdowns. No. 3 Oklahoma again reached half-a-hundred points. The Sooners won big -- again.

So why was Bob Stoops posing for a postgame picture in front of the scoreboard for a University of Oklahoma police officer? Because he had his 100th coaching win with the Sooners. And, they weren't in Norman.

Bradford completed 18 of 21 passes for 304 yards, matched his career high with five touchdowns and ran for a sixth score to lead the Sooners easily past Washington 55-14 on Saturday night.

Oklahoma (3-0) passed its first test of a nine-month-old challenge to be better on the road. The Sooners scored on seven consecutive possessions and went home for a week off feeling much better than it did on its last trip to the West Coast two years ago.

"It feels great. This was something we talked about pretty much since the end of last year. We proved we can play well on the road," said Bradford, who is loving Stoops' new no-huddle offense and how it forces defenses into staying basic.

He is completing 79 percent of his passes with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions, one season after setting the NCAA freshman record with 36 touchdowns.

The Sooners scored their most points on the road against a school from a BCS conference since a 56-25 win at Texas Tech on Nov. 22, 2003.

They also handed Washington (0-3) its largest margin of defeat at home since 1929, when it lost 48-0 to Southern California.

"One of the best football teams we've played since we've been here," said Huskies coach Tyrone Willingham, who arrived for the 2005 season but may be gone after this one. "They were good in all aspects of the game. ... as strong a football team as I have seen."

Stoops won No. 100 in 123 games. The only active coach to reach the milestone more quickly was Penn States' Joe Paterno.

"There's been a lot of people who have been responsible for it," Stoops said.

Such as Chris Brown, who ran for 110 yards, and DeMarco Murray, who added 100 in a supremely balanced offense. Or Ryan Broyles and Jermaine Gresham. They each caught two of Bradford's scoring throws.

Stoops was satisfied that his constant reminders of Oklahoma going 12-10 in its last 22 games away from home had sparked the Sooners to another level.

"I liked their attitude. Just how they approached the trip," he said. "Even the way they walked off the bus."

Washington wished the Sooners would have stayed on.

The Huskies are winless through three games for the first time since the 2004 team finished 1-10, prompting the hiring of the now-embattled Willingham.

Oklahoma made sure Pac-10 officials had no say in this one.

Stoops threatened to never again bring his team to Pac-10 country after losing by one point at Oregon in 2005, with the help of blown calls at the end. The Pac-10 apologized for errors by its officiating crew after that game, but the conference's system of having its officials work non-conference games at its stadiums still exists.

Washington was also victim of a Pac-10 crew, at home last week. An excessive celebration penalty on quarterback Jake Locker after his touchdown at the end of regulation led to a 35-yard try for an extra point, which was blocked. The Huskies lost 28-27 to BYU.

Washington students officiating this one wouldn't have helped the Huskies.

Oklahoma, the highest-ranked nonconference team to visit Husky Stadium since 1969, used three of Bradford's scoring throws to take a 34-0 lead by halftime.

Washington lost three fumbles, missed two field goals and punted three times in its dreadful opening half.

Then on the third play after halftime, Broyles caught a short pass at the 27 and spun out of arm tackle tries by Johri Fogerson and Nate Williams. The redshirt freshman then raced for a 77-yard touchdown that put the Sooners up 41-0.

"It was a blur," Broyles said.

Or a nightmare. A coach renowned for stoicism, Willingham was almost desperately animated. He threw his arms skyward, angrily slapped his hand with his play card and stomped as his record at Washington fell to 11-28.

"I do believe that this football team has faced one of the most difficult stretches that any team has had so far this season," he said of losses to three ranked teams. "I do think we are a better football team and now we need to build on it and show it."

Is it still too soon to fire Willingham?  Seriously, he has made absolutely no improvement to this program in his tenure.
