Kansas football was unable to overcome the powerful offense of No. 3/5 Oklahoma on Saturday, as the Jayhawks fell to the Sooners 41-3 at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas.
Kansas (1-10, 0-8 Big 12) held Oklahoma (10-1, 7-1 Big 12) redshirt senior quarterback Baker Mayfield to a season-low 259 yards passing, including just 105 in the first half, which was the lowest first-half total for the Heisman Trophy hopeful since 2015, but the Jayhawks were unable to get things going offensively and were held to 69 yards in the first half to go into the intermission trailing 21-3.
Stanley finished the day 19-of-33 passing for 123 yards, with a long of 34 yards to junior Steven Sims Jr. Sims led the Jayhawk receivers with 38 yards on just two catches, with Fairs (29 yards) and sophomore wide receiver Chase Harrell (22 yards) each grabbing six catches. Sophomore running back Khalil Herbert led the Kansas ground attack with 38 yards on 13 carries.
The 2017 season finale is this Saturday as the Hawks travel to Oklahoma State. Kickoff is at 11 am with pregame at 9:30 on Real Country 101.7.
On Tuesday, head coach David Beaty chatted with media members to break down the tilt this weekend and revisited the contest with Oklahoma.
