NORMAN, Okla. -- Make way for a Sooners surge. Sam Bradford and Oklahoma are on their way up in the national championship race, and Texas Tech sure came down with a mighty fall. Bradford threw for 304 yards and four touchdowns, and DeMarco Murray and Chris Brown combined to run for five more scores as the fifth-ranked Sooners brought an unceremonious end to No. 2 Texas Tech's run toward perfection in a 65-21 blowout in a Big 12 Conference game Saturday night.

There has been a shake-up in the interchangeable sock-drawer positions of 20 through 25. Nebraska and Oklahoma State rejoin the static-cling cluster while the Huskies (Northern Illinois) and the Hokies (Virginia Tech) infiltrate the rankings for the first time this season. No. 6 Florida State used a 63-0 win over Maryland to leapfrog Louisville and Georgia. Sometimes piling it on counts. Researchers are checking to see whether No. 16 Washington is the first school to move up after a loss, and also whether Georgia is the first team to drop three spots after a victory.

UCLA is still awaiting word on the eligibility status of two basketball transfers, forward Wanaah Bail and guard Isaac Hamilton. Bail signed with Texas Tech and was to play for the Red Raiders a year ago but did not return to the school after summer session in 2012. Hamilton signed with Texas El Paso as a senior at Bellflower St. John Bosco last year. He tried to gain his release this summer and enrolled at UCLA. Both players are appealing to the NCAA to be eligible for the 2013-14 season.

Taurean Henderson was sure he had gotten over the goal line on the final play of Texas Tech's game against Oklahoma. "I was very confident. You never know, though. I was a little nervous too," Henderson said of his two-yard run that gave the No. 21 Red Raiders a 23-21 win on Saturday. "I started out to score the touchdown, got hit, was laying on top of someone and just stretched out." Henderson took the handoff with two seconds remaining and went up the middle.

HOUSTON BOWL Navy (8-4) vs. Texas Tech (7-5), 1:30 p.m., ESPN -- They say opposites attract, and the Houston Bowl is a prime example. The Midshipmen are No. 1 running the ball (326.8 yards a game), and the Red Raiders are No. 1 in passing (473.5). Navy's go-to guy in the option attack is junior fullback Kyle Eckel, a throwback player who rumbled for 1,178 yards and 10 touchdowns. To say Eckel is a tough customer would be an understatement. He injured his left shoulder in a Sept.

Texas Tech Coach Mike Leach was red in the face Saturday after the Red Raiders lost, 59-43, to Texas at Austin, offering a not-so-thinly veiled accusation that game officials favored the Longhorns. Without naming him, Leach noted that referee Randy Christal lives in Austin, the Longhorns' home city. "I think it's disturbing that Austin residents are involved in this," Leach said. "Am I condemning the crew? [Heck] yeah, I'm condemning the crew."

Four weeks later, that Texas Tech upset over then-No. 3 Oklahoma seems stranger than ever. Texas Tech ended the nation's longest home winning streak, 39 games, with that upset. Since then? The Red Raiders are 0-3 and have been outscored 159-33. Oklahoma State delivered a 66-6 mauling Saturday, with Brandon Weedon passing for 423 yards and five touchdowns in less than three full quarters. And the game was at Lubbock, Texas, where the Cowboys had lost nine of their previous 10 games.

Bear Bryant's sport took on Yogi Berra's sport and knocked one out of the national park. It was about time. Commissioner Bud Selig bloviated a few weeks back that only baseball could produce the kind of drama displayed on one wild night in the wild-card race. It was an absurd statement given that college football did this sort of stuff all the time. Remember the Friday after last Thanksgiving, when Auburn rallied from 24-0 down to beat Alabama on the same day/night Boise State lost a shocker at Nevada?

The sequel was much better for the No. 20 Horned Frogs. "We wanted to get it in our heads how embarrassed we felt," Blake said. "We're better than that."

Texas Tech 78, Pepperdine 76 2OT--Jayson Mitchell scored only two points, but they came at the buzzer of the second overtime to give the Red Raiders a victory in the consolation round of the Pearl Harbor Classic at Laie, Hawaii. Mitchell, who made only one of 10 shots, rebounded a missed shot by Mario Layne and made the game-winner, a 15-foot baseline effort. With the exception of a good start by Pepperdine (6-5), the game was close all the way with neither team able to break away.
