Key play: Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones hit receiver Kenny Stills on a pretty, 44-yard touchdown pass that gave the Sooners a 10-0 lead with 3:49 left in the quarter.
Key stat: One turnover. With KU threatening to score, Oklahoma linebacker Tom Wort laid out QB Dayne Crist, forcing a fumble in the final minutes. It turned into a potential 10- or 14-point swing when the Sooners scored on the other end.
Key play: Oklahomas Justin Brown opened the floodgates on a zigzagging, 90-yard punt return for a touchdown with 10:09 left in the second quarter. Oklahoma 24, KU 0.
Key stat: 44. That was how many passing yards KUs quarterbacks had at halftime. At that same point, Oklahoma had 219.
Key play: Oklahoma added some style points when Roy Winch opened the second half with a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown.
Key stat: For the first time in Oklahoma history, the Sooners returned a punt and kickoff for touchdowns in the same game.
Key play: KU running back James Sims saved the offense from being shut out with a 1-yard touchdown run in the final minutes.
Key stat: Oklahoma has won eight straight over Kansas, with the Jayhawks last win coming in 1997.
Player of the game: Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones. If Jones faced Kansas every week, his NFL stock would be soaring. He finished 20 of 29 for 300 yards and three touchdowns.
Reason to hope: The Jayhawks will get their crack at Texas brittle defense next week. Maybe thats an answer for KUs anemic offense. Maybe.
Reason to mope: KU finishes with three of its last five games on the road, including trips to Baylor and Texas Tech. Its hard to find KUs next conference victory.
Looking ahead: Kansas returns to Memorial Stadium to face Texas at 11 a.m. Saturday the 100th Homecoming in KUs history.
