Jayhawks Trail Sooners, 24-17 at Halftime
Oct. 18, 2008
NORMAN, Okla. – Sparked by a 69-yard touchdown strike from Todd Reesing to Dezmon Briscoe, the Kansas Jayhawks cut into an 11-point Oklahoma lead and trail the Sooners just 24-17 at the break.
Briscoe finished the first half with nine catches for 193 yards, already a career-high, to lead the Jayhawks. The sophomore from Dallas, Texas, also had a key 40-yard reception late in the second to quarter to set up a 23-yard field goal by Jacob Branstetter.
Oklahoma racked up 252 yards in the first quarter, but managed only seven points in the quarter thanks to a stingy performance by the KU defense. The Sooners’ opening drive resulted in a missed field goal, marking the first time this season that OU hasn’t scored on its first possession.
