No. 19 Oklahoma steamrolls Kansas
Rhamondre Stevenson ran for 104 yards and two touchdowns to lead No. 19 Oklahoma to a 62-9 win over Kansas at Norman, Okla., on Saturday.
The Sooners had struggled to run the ball early in the season but Stevenson has helped turn that around since his return from a suspension last week.
Stevenson is averaging nearly eight yards per carry in his two games this season after leading the country — among players with at least 50 carries — with an 8.0 average a year ago.
Stevenson also played a big role in the passing game, with four catches for 60 yards, both career highs.
Since losing their first two games in Big 12 play, the Sooners (5-2, 4-2 Big 12) have won four consecutive games heading into their Nov. 21 showdown with No. 14 Oklahoma State.
The Jayhawks (0-7, 0-6) have lost 11 consecutive games and haven’t won a Big 12 road game since 2008.
Kansas couldn’t get much going offensively, finishing with just 246 yards of total offense, scoring their lone touchdown on the game’s final play. The Sooners had nine sacks, three by Nik Bonitto.
Jayhawks freshman quarterback Jalon Daniels was 11 of 31 for 115 yards and two interceptions in his second start.
Both of Daniels’ interceptions came in the first quarter, though Kansas kept the ball after the second one following an Oklahoma fumble at the end of the play.
The Sooners got a scare in the second quarter when quarterback Spencer Rattler took a hit to his left hip as he crossed the goal-line.
Rattler initially remained in the game but pulled himself out on the second play of the next series after making his first pass after the hit.
Rattler returned on the next series but didn’t look comfortable, limping some and often wincing after making throws.
He played much of the third quarter and finished 15 of 27 for 212 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
