Notes & Storylines

  • Oklahoma is looking for their 17th straight victory over Kansas on Saturday.
  • The Sooner’s 15 game winning streak is not only the longest in the country, it’s also the 7th longest in program history.
  • Oklahoma is off to just its second 7-0 start in the last 17 years (it also won its first seven games in 2019). A win against Kansas would give the Sooners their first 8-0 start since 2004, under head coach Bob Stoops.
  • The Sooners have scored at least 34 points in each of their last 12 games against Kansas. It is the longest such streak in school history against a single opponent (next longest is 11 straight games against Kingfisher College from 1908-19 and vs. Texas Tech [current])
  • Oklahoma is 78-27-6 all-time vs. Kansas. Eight of KU’s wins came in the series’ first eight meetings, while 16 of its victories came before 1931. Since 1965, the Sooners are 43-6 vs. the Jayhawks.
  • Oklahoma has won each of the last 16 matchups against Kansas by at least 15 points. The Sooners have outscored the Jayhawks 710-215 in those contests, and have outgained them 8,019 yards to 4,285. OU has won the last seven meetings by a combined score of 365-89.
  • In the last 20 games for the Sooners, only Breece Hall and Bijan Robinson have rushed for more than 100 yards on the Oklahoma defense. OU is 23rd in the country in rush defense and Kansas is 84th in rushing offense.
  • Among teams with at least 25 red zone trips this season, Oklahoma ranks first nationally with its 97.6% score rate (40 scores on 41 trips). Of the 41 trips to the red zone, 30 have resulted in touchdowns. The 40 red zone scores are most in the country, as are the 30 red zone TDs.
  • OU has won as many Big 12 titles the last six seasons (six) as it has lost games against Big 12 opponents (56-6 record; includes four Big 12 Championship games).
