Oklahoma was the first visiting team to win in Baylor's new stadium on the banks of the Brazos River.
Now the Sooners will try to become the first opponent to win twice at McLane Stadium. And Baker Mayfield appeared to be reminding the Bears of that before Saturday night's game.

Baylor won the first 10 games played in the stadium after it opened for the 2014 season. The Bears won those first 10 games by an average margin of 32 points.
That was until the Sooners _ on way to a Big 12 title and a spot in the four-team College Football Playoff _ won 44-34 there in mid-November 2015.
Mayfield was 24-of-34 passing for 270 yards and three touchdowns in that game two years ago, and also ran for a score. The Sooners beat Baylor in Norman 45-24 last season
After losing to the Sooners, Baylor ended the 2015 regular season with a home loss to Texas. Including those two games, the Bears are 4-6 in their last 10 home games.
That includes taking a four-game home losing streak into the game against the Sooners. The Bears started this season with home losses to Liberty and UTSA.
