A LOT OF CRIMSON
It wasn't like Lloyd Noble Center last winter, when Kansas had more fans in Norman for a men's basketball game, but there was a lot of crimson in the stands Saturday night. What stood out was OU had hundreds of fans sitting between the 40-yard lines in the high-dollar donor sections.
GOOD SITS WITH A CONCUSSION
Starting left guard Stephen Good did not suit out after suffering a concussion during practice last week. Redshirt freshman Adam Shead, who has received compliments from the coaching staff in recent weeks and has played a few series as a reserve, made his first career start.
Good was inserted in the starting lineup after center Ben Habern suffered a broken arm against Missouri. Gabe Ikard, who slid over from left guard, made his third start at center.
Wide receiver Kenny Stills suffered a twisted right knee midway through the third quarter but returned the following series. Stills watched the entire fourth quarter from the sideline. ... Middle linebacker Tom Wort, who suffered a bruised back against Texas, started, but Jaydan Bird played the entire second half. ... Linebacker Travis Lewis left the game briefly late in the first half, but he returned to play the entire second half. ... Kicker Jimmy Stevens, who was sidelined by a quadriceps injury, then lost his starting job to redshirt freshman Michael Hunnicutt, did not dress out for Saturday's game. It was uncertain if Stevens reinjured his quadriceps.
