OU football notebook: Dominique Whaley has career night

TOUGHER THAN EXPECTED

Because they were a five-touchdown favorite, and Kansas has allowed nearly 60 points a game to four BCS opponents, it was surprising the Sooners led only 30-17 after three quarters.

“Everybody saw the score last week against Oklahoma State and thought it was going to be like a video game. It doesn't happen that way,” said co-offensive coordinator Jay Norvell. “Our kids are human. (Kansas) wanted to play well and we were a little bit off early.

“But Landry (Jones) throws for (363 yards). You look at the number Ryan (Broyles) had (13 catches, 217 yards). Dom ran well. But we still did some things we want to do better. But we won by 30 on the road. Sometimes we try to be so perfect we don't give the other team credit.”

EXTRA POINTS

Kicker Jimmy Stevens (quad injury) didn't make the trip. Michael Hunnicutt was 4-of-4 on field goals. He's 10-of-11 since taking over for Stevens. Freshman Eric Hosek was the backup kicker. ... Middle linebacker Jaydan Bird played most of the second half for Tom Wort, who suffered a bruised back against Texas.
