The Oklahoma Sooners improved to 5-1 on the season with a win of 52-7 over Kansas on Saturday evening in Norman.
Landry Jones led the way for the Sooners with 300 passing yards on 20-29 passing and three touchdowns. Jones’s top target, Kenny Stills had six receptions for 90 yards in the win. The Jayhawks started freshman quarterback in place of former starter Dayne Crist. The freshman completed 10 passes out of 21 attempts for 110 yards. Cummings had two interceptions in the game.
Oklahoma had 406 total yards of offense, while the visiting Jayhawks mustered up 308. While the passing game struggled, the Jayhawks rushing attack enjoyed some success. James Sims and Tony Pierson combined for 165 yards on 41 carries. Sims scored the Jayhawks only touchdown with just over three minutes left in the game. Kansas won the time of possession battle, 39 minutes to 20 in large part to the running game, and the Sooners quick strike offense.
Sooners placekicker Michael Hunnicut kicked off the scoring with a 37-yard field goal in the first quarter. Later on in the quarter, Jones completed his first touchdown pass to Stills on a 44-yard reception. The rout was in full force after the Sooners rallied off four straight touchdowns in the second quarter, going into the locker-room with a 38-point advantage. Oklahoma scored two touchdowns on returns, the first coming in the second quarter from Justin Brown on a 90-yard punt return. Then Roy Finch scored on a 100-yard kickoff return to start the second half, pushing the lead to 45 points.
