Sooners satisfied with win

Undefeated Oklahoma, the No. 1-ranked team in the country in the coaches’ poll — the same OU that annihilated Texas, 55-17, the previous week — looked human in Saturday’s 47-17 victory over Kansas in Memorial Stadium.

KU football notebook: Jeremiah Hatch hurt, but 'fine' after scare

Kansas University offensive lineman Jeremiah Hatch left the game late in the first quarter following an apparent back injury.


This time, Kansas not punch line

It sounds absurd to talk about a football team taking a step forward on a night in which it allowed 610 yards and 47 points, a night in which it had one second-half first down and lost by 30 points, but the fact is Kansas University looked significantly better Saturday in a 47-17 loss to Oklahoma in Memorial Stadium.


FINAL: KU’s offense musters just 6 second-half yards in 47-17 loss to No. 3 Oklahoma

The Kansas football team's offense disappeared in the second half, as No. 3 Oklahoma pulled away for a 47-17 victory on Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.

The Jayhawks mustered just six yards on their 27 plays of the second half. They had only first down in the final 30 minutes — coming with 3:10 left during garbage time.

OU receiver Ryan Broyles caught 13 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns. He also set a new NCAA record for receptions in a career during the game.

Quarterback Landry Jones was 29-for-48 passing for 363 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.

Meanwhile, KU quarterback Jordan Webb had his worst game this season, completing just 13 of 25 passes for 108 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions.

KU (2-4) will play host to Kansas State at 11 a.m. on Oct. 22.
