The Kansas Jayhawks (2-4, 0-3) dropped their 24th straight Big 12 Conference game, despite scoring the first two touchdowns of the day. Kansas lost to the Oklahoma Sooners (6-1, 3-1) by the score of 36-19.
The First Quarter (plus 11 seconds): The Kansas Jayhawks scored the first two touchdowns of the game and led 13-0 after 15:11 into the game. They ran the ball up the gut on the Oklahoma defense early, and had the Sooner coaching staff yelling at each other. Unfortunately, this was the peak of the game for the Jayhawks.
The Running Game: Kansas ran the ball effectively in the first quarter and at times in the second half against a depleted and undersized Oklahoma front seven. James Sims toted the pigskin 23 times for 129 yards but he was at nearly 100 yards in the second quarter. He also had 2 touchdowns. Darrian Miller had 9 carries for 67 yards. For the game, Kansas as a team had 185 on 39 carries.
The Uniforms: The blue helmets with the gray jerseys and blue pants looked really sharp. Put the Fighting Jayhawk on the helmet, make the numbers a bit bigger on the jerseys, and these uniforms would have been darn near perfect.
