The Oklahoma Sooners outscored Kansas 35-13 after halftime and improved to 8-0 (5-0 Big 12 Conference) with a 35-23 win in Lawrence, Kan.
OU sleepwalking through the first half against the Jayhawks has its consequences, though. The Sooners fell several spots to No. 4 in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll as Cincinnati and Alabama jumped them.
National pundits reacting to last weekend’s action aren’t necessarily over the moon for the Sooners right now either. CBS Sports Barrett Sallee gave Oklahoma a grade of D+ for their performance against Kansas.
