Number BY THE NUMBERS
The KU defense has shown great improvement from last season and even throughout the 2016 campaign. One of the most notable improvements is on third down as the Jayhawks are only allowing their opponents to convert on 35 percent of their attempts.
- Sophomore defensive end Dorance Armstrong Jr., sacked Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield early in the second half of Saturday’s game to extend his streak to six-straight games recording at least one sack. It was also the first sack Oklahoma gave up in its last three games (since Texas [Oct. 8]).
- Junior punter Cole Moos continued a streak of three-straight weeks of recording at least one punt over 60 yards with a 63-yard boot late in the third quarter at Oklahoma. Moos currently ranks tied for second in the NCAA with four 60-yard punts on the season. He is one of 66 Ray Guy Award candidates for the nation’s top punter.
- KU is one the most disciplined teams in the Big 12 Conference and in the nation when it comes to penalties as the Jayhawks lead the league in fewest penalty yards (365) and fewest penalty yards per game (45.63).
