Sooners Cruise Past Kansas

Sooners Cruise Past Kansas

OUKUAs expected, Oklahoma had little issues with winless Kansas Saturday, blowing out the Jayhawks, 62-7 in Lawrence.

OU’s offense continued its impressive play since a loss to Texas, amassing 710 yards against the overmatched KU defense.

The Sooners big four offensive playmakers doing most of the damage.

Baker Mayfield throwing for 383 yards and 4 touchdowns. Most of those passes caught by Sterling Shepard, who grabbed 11 for 183 yards and a score.

It was another big day for OU running backs Samaje Perine and Joe Mixon. The dynamic duo combining for 134 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Those numbers over just 2 1/2 quarters and just 17 carries. Perine averaging 8.2 a carry, Mixon 7.3.

Mixon also caught a 68 yard TD pass for the Sooners first score.

The defense (again without Devante Bond, Jordan Evans and Zack Sanchez) also playing another solid game, limiting Kansas to total yards.

Overall, it was the kind of easy win the Sooners needed to continue their momentum from the last two weeks. This might as well have been called “The Sominex Classic.”

No injuries. No drama. No problem.

Next week the Sooners get Iowa State in what should be another tuneup for the last three games of the regular season.

That trio is at Baylor, home for TCU and then Bedlam in Stillwater.

OU looks improved enough to have a decent shot at running the table.

It won’t be easy, but at least the Sooners have a puncher’s chance, especially with Seth Russell out for Baylor and OSU’s struggles at Texas Tech.

Didn’t look like the Sooners would have that chance after the debacle in Dallas.
