No. 16 Oklahoma's offense did its usual thing — rolling up 538 yards — in a 56-3 rout of Kansas. Baker Mayfield threw for 236 yards and four touchdowns and receiver Dede Westbrook scored on a 71-yard punt return and a 41-yard reception for Oklahoma (6-2, 5-0).
But the Sooners' defense — much maligned after allowing 854 yards a week earlier in a 66-59 win over Texas Tech — also did its part this time, limiting Kansas (1-7, 0-5) to 170 yards, the fewest by an Oklahoma opponent this season.
"It's positive to play well," Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said. "It's one week. Next week will be another journey. In our world, you live week to week. Right now, the guys responded and really played well in all parts." (Associated Press/Charlotte Observer)
