Full Game Recap
After a game with lightning delays, muffed kickoffs and sloppy play, the Sooners fell to the Jayhawks 38-33 in Lawrence.
The defense made a stop on the first drive, but the Sooners offense spotted the Jayhawks an early 7-points off of Dillon Gabriel’s first pick-six of the season, giving KU a 7-0 lead with 9:25 left in the first.
The game continued to be… ugly. After finding themselves down 0-14, the team rallied to take a 21-17 lead going into halftime after play was halted nearly an hour due to a weather delay.
The teams went back-and-forth, but as time became crucial, Kansas made more plays. The Kansas defense made two big stops on Oklahoma’s final drives and the offense scored the game winning touchdown after converting a 4th-and-6 with :58 seconds left in the game.
The defense continued where they left off from the UCF game, missing tackles and dropping interceptions. As for the offense, it felt like it was stuck in the mud.
With rainy weather nearly all game, the lackluster passing attack from the offense continued through four-quarters, as Gabriel had his worst game of the season passing 14-for-19 with 171 yards, 0 touchdowns and the pick-six.
Unlike the passing game, the rushing attack did their job, as the team had 249-yards and 5-touchdowns. Tawee Walker led the team with 146-yards on 6.3 yards-per-carry.
Is All Lost for the Sooners?
Despite the team, coaches and fans feeling defeated, all hope is not lost for the Sooners. They still control their own destiny in the Big 12 as they look ahead to Bedlam next week in Stillwater against the 5-2 Cowboys.
