No. 10 Sooners score at will, roll past outmanned Jayhawks, 52-7
NORMAN - The same Oklahoma Sooners who rolled over Texas just a week ago made another appearance Saturday.
Using 397 yards of total offense and holding visiting Kansas to 106 yards of offense through three quarters (the Jayhawks finished with 300, but much came with the game well out of hand), No. 9 Oklahoma rolled to a 52-7 win in Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Saturday night.
Oklahoma is now 5-1 overall and is on a tear after the loss to Kansas State three weeks ago. Since that loss, the Sooners have outscored their competition 156-48.
"They are playing good in every way, getting turnovers, getting pressure," Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said of his defense.
It all got going early on the Sooners first drive, even if it stalled out after a promising start, Michael Hunnicutt came on for the 37-yard field goal to put the Sooners up 3-0. On the drive, things seemed to be flowing well as Landry Jones hit receivers and Oklahoma marched down the field.
Jones then kept things going on Oklahoma's second drive when he connected with Kenny Stills on a beautiful 44-yard touchdown pass. The Sooners went up-tempo with the offense and went 87 yards in just 58 seconds as Jones connected on four straight passes to put the Jayhawks on their heels.
Jones would finish 19 for 28 for 291 yards and three touchdowns as the Sooner offense went vertical against the Jayhawks.
"We chose not to run the ball as much," Stoops said. "We thought there were more opportunities to throw it."
