Oklahoma @ Kansas: Notable Stats

Oklahoma was not perfect against the statistically worst defense in the nation, the Kansas Jayhawks. However, the Sooners were able to put up solid numbers and it became a tale of two halves for most. The defense took over and squashed anything KU was trying to do while still playing very vanilla. Here are a few stats from the weekend:

  • Ryan Broyles broke the NCAA reception record and looks to extend it throughout the remainder of the season, currently has 326 catches
  • Broyles ended the game with 13 receptions for 217 yards earning PotW honors
  • Broyles also averaged 28 yards on punt returns
  • Roy Finch averaged 9.7 yards a carry but was limited to only 6 touches
  • Dominique Whaley had a career night on 30 carries for 165 yards and a touchdown
  • Oklahoma brought constant pressure and ended up with 5 sacks on the night
  • The Jayhawks put up 252 yards of total offense and was limited to 9 first downs
  • Kansas was only allowed 6 total yards in the second half
  • OU gave up 147 yards on 5 plays, two of those being busted/panic plays
  • Michael Hunnicutt was 4/4 on Field Goals, safe to say our kicking woes have been vanquished?
  • Memorial Stadium failed to sell out against a top opponent with only 42,580 in attendance
  • Most importantly Oklahoma scored 30 more points than Kansas did on 610 yards of total offense with a very limited playbook!
  • Funny little note: Ryan Broyles threw away his record breaking gloves. After the game he said it was because he had a fumble, it was time to get rid of them.
