(Eds: APNewsNow. With AP Photos.) By MURRAY EVANS Associated Press When Oklahoma revamped its defense during the offseason, it was because of games like the one the Sooners will play Thursday night. No. 5 Baylor (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) leads the FBS in scoring average (63.9 points), passing offense (417.3 yards) and total offense (718.4 yards) and are seventh nationally in rushing offense (301.1 yards). No. 12 Oklahoma did get a bit of a preview of what they might see Thursday when the Sooners beat Texas Tech and its high-powered offense 38-30 last month. Torched by spread offenses run by West Virginia, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M during the final stretch of 2012, Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1) switched to an alignment with three linemen and five defensive backs. The Sooners rank 10th in the Bowl Subdivision in total defense.
