NORMAN, Okla. - Corey Coleman set career highs of 15 catches and 224 yards to help No. 10 Baylor roll past No. 16 Oklahoma 48-14 on Saturday.

It was the most receptions ever by a player against the Sooners. Coleman also caught a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Bears (8-1, 5-1 Big 12, No. 12 in CFP) maintained their conference and national title hopes.

Bryce Petty, who repeatedly said he was "ready for OU" after the win over Kansas the week before, proved it by completing 32 of 42 passes for 387 yards and a touchdown. It was Baylor's first road win in 12 tries against the Sooners (6-3, 3-3, No. 15 CFP), and the Bears' first road win against a ranked team since Art Briles took over as head coach in 2008.

Oklahoma quarterback Trevor Knight was carted off after being sacked in the fourth quarter.

Baylor has won three of the past four meetings with the Sooners after losing the first 20. The Bears defeated the Sooners 41-12 last year in Waco.

The Sooners were without star receiver Sterling Shepard, who suffered a groin injury the previous week against Iowa State.

Baylor took a 3-0 lead, but Oklahoma responded with a 64-yard touchdown drive. Knight hurdled a defender on an 18-yard run, then later threw a eight-yard touchdown pass to Michiah Quick. On Oklahoma's next possession, Knight found Durron Neal for a 9-yard touchdown pass to bump the Sooners' lead to 14-3.

Baylor scored the next 45 points.

Petty fired a 33-yard touchdown pass to Coleman that trimmed Oklahoma's lead to 14-10 early in the second quarter. Bryce Hager intercepted Knight and returned it to the Oklahoma 1, and Devin Chafin scored on the next play to put Baylor on top 17-14.

After a roughing-the-punter penalty kept a Baylor drive alive, Chafin scored from 2 yards out to bump Baylor's lead to 24-14, a score that held until halftime.

Coleman's 5-yard touchdown run three minutes into the second half increased Baylor's advantage to 31-14, and Shock Linwood's 3-yard touchdown run made it 38-14.

Oklahoma's defenders backed off Baylor's receivers in the third quarter, and Petty burned the Sooners by completing 16 of 17 passes for 206 yards in the period.

Oklahoma has lost two conference home games in a season for the first time in 16 years under coach Bob Stoops.
