OU Bashes Cupcake Kansas

The Jayhawks of Kansas came down to Norman to face the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday, and the results were anything but surprising.  In a 56-3 route of the Jayhawks, the Sooners looked unstoppable, and a feisty Kansas team looked lost throughout. Baker Mayfield threw for 4 TDs and 0 INTs to go along with over 230 yards passing. Dede Westbrook recorded another over-100 yard receiving game, and ran the ball once for 20+ yards.
OU played better against Kansas, but that’s expected when you play a team that’s as inept of creating offense as the Jayhawks are. Overall, this win means almost nothing when it comes to measuring the Sooners as a whole because of the grade of the opponent. The only team in the Big 12 that shouldn’t smack Kansas around is Iowa State, and even then, KU wouldn’t be favored. So say what you will about “improvements” when it comes to the Sooners performance, because until you show something against a team with a winning record, they don’t count.
Oklahoma takes on Iowa State next  week in a game that should have a similar stat line. The Cyclones have  come close to defeating some above average teams, but have never been able to finish the deal. The Sooners won’t be the ones to end that streak, most likely. Just something to think about as OU takes a week to prepare for the Iowa State Cyclones.
