Oklahoma Dominates Kansas, 56-3

Desperate for a strong performance from its defense, Oklahoma found the perfect opponent in Kansas' feeble offense.

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).

KU Head Coach Wanted To Hire Lincoln Riley

Every week when Kansas head coach David Beaty previews his team’s upcoming foe, the Kansas football coach with seemingly endless ties to his home state of Texas references various assistants he knows on opposing staffs and praises them for what they’re accomplishing.

Beaty delivered more of the same leading up to the Jayhawks’ trip to face No. 16 Oklahoma on Saturday, and shared his admiration for Sooners offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley dated back a few years. In fact, Beaty hoped to add Riley to his staff when he took over KU’s program in December, 2014.

Baseball: Kansas Defeats OU, 10-8

The No. 11-ranked University of Oklahoma's bats woke up in the fifth inning against Kansas on Saturday afternoon with seven runs to erase a six run Jayhawk lead, but it was not enough as Kansas scored three more runs and finished the three-game series with a 10-8 victory, ending OU's 13-game win streak.

Kansas (15-10, 3-3 Big 12) jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the first inning, but Oklahoma (25-5, 5-1 Big 12) responded with one in the bottom of the frame before a seven-run rally gave the Sooners an 8-7 lead in the fifth.

OU's seven-run, five-hit rally was led by a three-run homer from Max White and a three-run triple from Hunter Haley. Craig Aikin got the scoring underway with an RBI double, followed by White's three-run blast, which plated Jack Mayfield and Aikin. With two outs, Hector Lorenzana and Anthony Hermelyn drew back-to-back walks before Garrett Carey moved them up 90 feet with a single to left. Haley's triple to right center cleared the bases and gave the Sooners their first lead of the game.

In the first inning, Matt Oberste wasted no time continuing his school-record 30 game hit streak on the first pitch he saw with a double that scored Max White.

Oklahoma held the lead through the sixth inning, but the Jayhawks came back to score two runs in the top of the seventh, and Kansas shortstop Kevin Kuntz drove in another run on an eigth-inning double.

An errant throw from Kansas third baseman Jordan Dreiling in the bottom of the eighth erased a potential double play and provided another spark for the Sooner fans in attendance, but the OU bats stranded White and Aikin on second and third respectively to end the inning.

OU's next game comes on Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m. in Norman against Bedlam rival Oklahoma State.

Sooners Hold Off Wildcats

Oklahoma defeats Kansas State, 42-30: Before Saturday's game at Oklahoma, Kansas State coach Bill Snyder joked that he wanted to appeal the NCAA and start this contest in the second quarter. Had he gone through with the plan and somehow had that idea approved, the Wildcats would have left Norman with an impressive victory. Instead, they were outscored by 21 points in the first quarter and lost 42-30. (Kansas City Star)

Sooners Beat Jayhawks

Oklahoma defeats Kansas, 35-13: To Landry Jones, the Oklahoma defense is similar to a cool breeze on a hot afternoon. "Comforting," said the Sooners quarterback. "It's really comforting to have a great defense like that." While his defense intercepted Todd Reesing on Kansas' first three possessions and held the nation’s second-ranked offense about 200 yards beneath its average, Jones threw two touchdown passes and No. 25 Oklahoma cruised past No. 24 Kansas 35-13 Saturday.

Sooners Defeat Jayhawks 45-31

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Bradford throws a school record 468 yards to defeat Kansas: Sam Bradford passed for an Oklahoma record 468 yards and had three touchdowns passes to help the No. 4 Sooners bounce back from their first loss by beating No. 16 Kansas 45-31 on Saturday. The Sooners (6-1, 2-1 Big 12) started pulling away in the third quarter to keep themselves right in the thick of the national championship chase after losing their No. 1 ranking to Texas in last week's Red River Rivalry loss. DeMarco Murray scored his second touchdown of the game on an 8-yard run in the third quarter, and Bradford found third-string tight end Kolby Smith for a 2-yard touchdown pass as Oklahoma stretched its lead to 45-24 with 12:02 to play. Despite losing top receiver Manuel Johnson to a first-quarter arm injury, Bradford cleared the Oklahoma record of 429 yards set by Josh Heupel in 1999 against Louisville. (Associated Press)
