Oklahoma aims to run over Kansas for second straight year

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Nobody would fault David Beaty for concentrating entirely on stopping Oklahoma running back Semaje Perine, who reeled off a record 427 yards rushing in a rout of Kansas a year ago.

Trouble is, the Jayhawks' coach has plenty of other things to worry about on Saturday, too.

Like slowing down Baker Mayfield, who threw five touchdown passes in a 55-0 blowout of Kansas State two weeks ago. Or bottling up another freshman running back, Joe Mixon, who carried 16 times for 154 yards and two scores in a 63-27 clocking of Texas Tech last weekend.

Pop the antacids, coach. You might need them.

Ever since their stunning loss to Texas, the No. 14 Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) have looked like an entirely different team. They led the Wildcats 35-0 by halftime in that blowout win, and scored at least two touchdowns in every quarter of their romp through the Red Raiders.
