Considering the plethora of offensive talent on both teams — and the mediocre showings by their defenses — Sunday’s game could very well be a high-scoring one. Even if it is, the totals almost certainly won’t match those from the last time Patrick Mahomes and Baker Mayfield faced each other in college on Oct. 22, 2016.

Playing for Texas Tech, Mahomes attempted 88 passes, completed 52 passes and threw for 734 yards — and lost. Oklahoma won, 66-59, behind Mayfield’s 545 passing yards and seven touchdowns in his first game in Lubbock, Tex. since transferring after his freshman season.

The teams combined for a this-is-not-a-misprint 1,708 yards, most ever in a Football Bowl Subdivision game, and scored touchdowns on 10 consecutive second-half drives.

Already dealing a separated right shoulder, Mahomes fractured his left wrist early in the game, and he still accounted for a record 819 yards. Recalling Mahomes’s performance, Mayfield last week said that he had never seen anything like it before, or since.

“Just the efficiency and spectacular plays,” Mayfield said. “It was fun to watch. It has always been fun to keep up with Pat.”

In their lone N.F.L. meeting, in Week 9 in 2018, Mayfield sure tried keeping up but couldn’t. Mahomes threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns — to Mayfield’s 297 and two — in a 37-21 victory in Cleveland.
