OU vs. K-State Postgame: Breaking It Down

MANHATTAN, Kan. — The No. 9 Sooners got back to business with a 58-17 rout victory over the Kansas State Wildcats, and Sooners Illustrated digs deeper into it.

Game ball goes to: Quarterback Landry Jones—Forget about the two picks he threw in the first half because he shattered the OU all-time passing yardage record with his 505 passing yards. He was 35-of-47 with five touchdowns and also broke the school touchdown mark of 88 set by former Heisman quarterback Sam Bradford.

Play of the game: On a second-and-7 from the Kansas State 43 early in the second quarter, Jones heaved a ball down the right sideline and wide receiver Jaz Reynolds hauled in a spectacular one-handed catch. One player later, he caught a Sooner touchdown.

It was over when: Jones found Reynolds later in the game for their second touchdown hookup at the 4:26 mark of the third quarter. It was 37-17 at the time. .

Surprise of the game: OU held Kansas State scoreless and to just 32 yards in the second half after surrendering 17 points and 208 yards in the first 30 minutes.

The biggest thing we learned: The Sooners just can't lose coming off a loss the previous week. The last time that happened was Oct. 9, 1999 when they fell 38-28 to Texas a week removed from a 34-30 setback to Notre Dame.

The biggest concern: Why OU doesn't bring it week after week no matter who the opponent is. Last weekend the Sooners fell to Texas Tech, and this time around they destroyed a Top 10 opponent on the road.

Streak count: 5 straight victories over the Wildcats dating back to their last loss to them in the 2003 Big 12 Championship
