LAWRENCE, Kansas -- The OU defense continued its dominance Saturday, forcing three key turnovers to help lead the Sooners to a convincing 35-13 win over Kansas.
For the second game in a row, the defense held its opponent to well below their season average point total. Before Saturday, Kansas had not scored less than 30 points in any game this season. Last week, OU held national scoring leader Texas to 16 points.
The Sooners held talented Kansas receivers Dezmon Briscoe and Kerry Meier in check for most of the day. The longest catch for either receiver was 13 yards, and OU held quarterback Todd Reesing to just 5.3 yards per pass attempt.
The defense's strong play began on the first play from scrimmage, when safety Quinton Carter intercepted Reesing and gave the offense great field position.
