Oklahoma Slips Down AP Poll After Close Call in Lawrence

Oklahoma stayed unbeaten on Saturday with a 35-23 win over the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday in Lawrence.

It wasn’t the prettiest showing, but the Oklahoma Sooners once again found a way to win on Saturday knocking off the Kansas Jayhawks 35-23 to improve to 8-0 on the season and extend the nation’s longest winning streak to 16 games.

True freshman quarterback Caleb Williams continued to dazzle, bouncing back from a quiet first half to score three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing) in the second half to help the Sooners escape Lawrence.

With the close call against the 1-win Jayhawks, Oklahoma has slipped a spot down to No. 4 in the latest AP Poll released on Sunday.
