Gresham goes off, Sooners roll on

NORMAN, OK -- Jermaine Gresham matched a school record by catching four of Sam Bradford's five touchdown passes, and No. 5 Oklahoma took sole possession of first place in the Big 12 South with a 42-14 win against Texas A&M on Saturday night.

Gresham, a sophomore tight end, equaled the record for TD receptions in a game set by Trent Smith in 2001 against Kansas on a 13-yard pass by Bradford in the front corner of the end zone late in the third quarter. That put Oklahoma up 35-0 on its way to another rout of the Aggies (6-4, 3-3 Big 12) in Norman.

Four years after Oklahoma (8-1, 5-1) handed the Aggies (6-4, 3-3) their most lopsided loss ever in a 77-0 blowout, Bradford tied the school record for touchdown passes set by 2000 Heisman Trophy runner-up Josh Heupel and matched three times by 2004 Heisman Trophy winner Jason White.

Bradford and Gresham hooked up twice, from 3 and 13 yards, before the Aggies even completed a pass and Oklahoma led 14-0 early in the second quarter. Bradford found tailback Chris Brown out of the backfield for a 14-yard score late in the first half, and then added TD passes of 38 and 13 yards to Gresham.

Bradford finished with 284 yards on 21-for-30 passing, and Gresham had five catches for a career-best 80 yards.
