It was suppose to be a huge blowout win for the Sooners and that's exactly what it turned out to be. Samaje Perine didn't break any NCAA records this time around against Kansas, but they moved to 7-1 on the season and scored over 50 points for the third game in a row.

Baker Mayfield completed 27 of 32 passing attempts and threw for four touchdowns before sitting out halfway through the fourth quarter. Perine rushed for 90 yards and two touchdowns and Joe Mixon recorded a 68 yard touchdown reception in the first score of the game. Alex Ross came in the fourth and rushed for over 100 yards too.

The only Kansas touchdown of the game came after a fumbled punt return by Sterling Shepard. But the senior receiver had a huge game aside from that play, recording 11 receptions and 183 yards to go with a sweet touchdown catch in the endzone to put the Sooners up 21-0 in the first quarter.

Defensively, the Sooners played great and consistent football. They allowed just 216 yards and just 35 came on the ground.

Aside from the final score, the Sooners committed just four penalties and had no major injuries. LG Jonathan Alvarez was hurt in the first half, but it didn't look like anything major. Staying healthy and cleaning up penalties were the Sooners main goal today aside from winning, so that was nice to see them do well in those areas.

The moment of the game may have came late in the fourth, when QB Trevor Knight found his brother, TE Connor Knight, for a touchdown pass. It was a cool thing to see and you can be sure it's an awesome feeling for those two who have done a lot for the football program.

The Sooners host Iowa State next week and then travel to Waco, Texas to play Baylor two weeks from now. They can still win out and win the Big 12.
