Yikes.

NCAA Football: Kansas at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

STOP THE COUNTING!!!

Wow that was bad. This is going to be short and sweet, because reasons.

Oklahoma nearly covered the over/under by themselves, falling just two points shy of doing so.

Oklahoma starters, for some reason, played deep into the third quarter. Tanner Mordecai didn’t see the field until 4:52 left in the 3Q. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this to complain, I just don’t understand why a team in OU’s position would risk injury like that.

Jalon Daniels was sacked nine times, and injured his leg late in the game. He is expected to be able to go for the Texas game following KU’s bye this week.

But hey, at least KU coaches didn’t try to play this game straight up. Trailing 21-0 with about 7 minutes to go until halftime, the Jayhawks faced a 4th-and-1 from their own 27-yard line. Kansas elected to go for it, running an option play to the wide side of the field. Daniels made the incorrect decision to keep it, and even though they didn’t get the conversion, I still say that’s progress! For the day KU was 2-4 on 4th down attempts.

The Good

At least America won on Saturday.

The Bad

This is KU football we’re talking about here.

The Ugly

Whew that offensive line play was rough, and has been all year.
