LAWRENCE, Kan. — Oklahoma's defenders remembered what Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing and wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe did to them last season.

And they weren't about to let that happen again.

One season after allowing Reesing to connect with Briscoe for 269 passing yards and two touchdowns, OU (4-3, 2-1 Big 12) shut down the duo and routed the Jayhawks 35-13 Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

Reesing finished with one of the worst games in his career. The Sooners picked him off three times in the first half, with OU cornerback Dom Franks returning one 85-yards for a defensive touchdown.

Briscoe didn't fare much better.

On the Sooners' second kickoff, true freshman Ronnell Lewis belted Briscoe so hard he had to momentarily leave the game. Briscoe came back, but he was blanketed by Sooner cornerback Brian Jackson and only had seven catches for 60 yards. It was just the second game this season Briscoe has failed to total at least 100 yards receiving.
