LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Dillon Gabriel threw for two touchdowns and ran for another and sixth-ranked Oklahoma hammered Nebraska 49-14 in the Cornhuskers’ first game following the firing of Scott Frost.

OU posted its most lopsided victory over Nebraska since a 45-10 win in 1990. The Sooners have won seven of eight against the team it used to battle for conference championships year-in and year-out in the old Big Eight.

The Huskers have lost 19 straight against Top 25 opponents and nine in a row against Bowl Subdivision teams.

Oklahoma scored 35 straight points after Nebraska opened with a six-play, 77-yard touchdown drive.
