David Beaty talks about pregame antics, chippiness between KU and OU
The KU football team didn’t need to wait for kickoff for the fireworks to start.
As the captains stood at midfield, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield extended his arm for a handshake. No KU players stepped forward, prompting the quarterback to clap a few times before heading back to the sideline.
Speaking after the game, KU coach David Beaty provided some clarity on the moment.
“I’m proud of our guys for getting to a point (where) we’re not going to take it any more,” Beaty said. "I’ve got to do a better job as their coach, maybe teaching them how to manage that a little bit better.”
