KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Jason White had three touchdown passes and Adrian Peterson ran for three more as second-ranked Oklahoma cruised past Colorado 42-3 in the Big 12 Conference title game.

White finished with 254 yards and threw all his touchdowns over the first 15:07. Two went to Mark Clayton, who made a reaching, fingertip catch on the second for a 21-0 lead. Clayton finished with eight catches for 106 yards.

Peterson surpassed the century mark in the second quarter for his 11th 100-yard rushing game, an NCAA record for a freshman. He finished with 172 yards and saved the best for last _ breaking six tackles for a darting, spinning 32-yard score and a 42-3 lead.

The Buffs turned their year of turmoil into a feel-good story by capturing the Big 12 North with a stirring, late-season, three-game winning streak.

"I'm embarrassed by the performance," Barnett said. "It was inept at best. We played very, very poorly in a venue where we needed to play great."

Joel Klatt threw for 52 yards for the Buffs, Bobby Purify had 7 yards on 12 carries and CU took until the 9:35 mark of the third quarter to get their first first down not via penalty.

Meanwhile, White and Peterson overmatched the CU defense from the get-go. Oklahoma drove 80, 63, 53 and 40 yards for touchdowns and a 28-0 lead after its first five drives.

Later in the second quarter, the Sooners made a first down off a fake field goal and were looking to go ahead 35-0, but White threw a lob into the end zone that was intercepted by Terrence Wheatley.

That was one of three turnovers the Sooners committed, the last of which resulted in Mason Crosby's field goal that kept the Buffs from being shut out.
