LAWERENCE, Kansas — Bad weather in the area caused a 30-minute delay to the start of the game, and once things did kickoff, it took No. 6 Oklahoma longer than that to get going.
The Sooners were sluggish throughout the first half, including losing 37 yards in three plays after a first-and-goal situation, but OU rallied for a comfortable win at Kansas.
Sooners quarterback Jalen Hurts was perfectly ordinary by his previous standards, but still had more than 300 yards of offense (including one catch) and three touchdowns.
Hurts was 16-of-24 passing for 228 yards. Thirteen different OU players had receptions Saturday, but no one had more than two. Rhamondre Stevenson led the Sooners in rushing with 109 yards and a touchdown on just five carries.
The OU defense allowed Kansas running back Pooka Williams to rush for more than 100 yards, but didn't allow the Jayhawks to get anything going in the second half until late.
