Kansas is 10-0 for the first time since 1899. With Ohio State's loss to Illinois earlier Saturday, the Jayhawks are the last unbeaten team among the six major conferences.
KU's players were unaware of Ohio State's loss until after the game.
"I didn't talk to them about it," KU coach Mark Mangino said. "We were trying to beat Oklahoma State."
¢ Kansas appeared to have a few key players going at less than 100 percent, though it wasn't enough to keep anyone out.
KU quarterback Todd Reesing appeared to favor his left leg, while James McClinton had a slight hobble as well that caused him to miss plays in the middle of the game. Both said they felt fine, though.
"It comes with the game, man," McClinton said. "It's a contact sport."
¢ Reesing threw three touchdown passes with no interceptions Saturday. His last pick came at Kansas State on Oct. 6, and he has thrown 179 passes since without an interception.
For the season, Reesing has thrown for 2,647 yards with 26 touchdowns and four interceptions.
¢ KU junior Justin Thornton started at safety alongside Darrell Stuckey for the first time this year. Patrick Resby started the first nine games at strong safety, but Thornton had played well in a reserve role and had a team-high four interceptions going into Saturday's game.
Thornton started four games as a freshman last year.
¢ Kansas finally used the Kerry Meier trickery Saturday that it was capable of. During the first quarter, Meier, lined up as a slot receiver, motioned into the backfield. Reesing then pitched to Meier on an option right, and Meier immediately flung it downfield to Marcus Henry. It ended up being a 43-yard gain that set up a Scott Webb field goal at the end of the first quarter.
¢ KU wide receiver Henry's 199 receiving yards are the most by a KU player since Quintin Smith had 221 yards against Louisville in 1989.
¢ Boone Pickens Stadium is unique from any other venue in the Big 12 Conference in that the end zones are on the east and west sides of the stadium, instead of the usual north-south. It typically causes problems with the sunshine, but Saturday's game started well after dark.
¢ Oklahoma State's stadium is undergoing a massive expansion project that will make the capacity around 60,000, as well as add more than 100 suites around the rim of the stadium. The seats will be ready for the 2008 season.
¢ Representatives from the Fiesta, Sugar, Alamo and Texas bowls were credentialed for Saturday's game. In addition, a representative for the Thorpe Award, given to the nation's top defensive back, was on hand. KU cornerback Aqib Talib is a semifinalist for the honor.
¢ After going 13-1 in its last 14 games, Kansas is now 35-35 in the Mangino era.
¢ Attendance was 39,848 for Saturday's game - the smallest crowd KU has played in front of this year.
