The 1-5 Kansas Jayhawks football team entered Saturday’s home game against No. 3 ranked and 7-0 Oklahoma as 38 1/2 point underdogs.

But after KU took a 10-0 halftime lead and a 17-7 lead in the third quarter, KU opened the gates at Booth Memorial Stadium as the Jayhawks moved closer to a monumental upset victory.

“The gates are open on the east and west sides of David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, no ticket required. Show up. Be loud. Rock Chalk,” read a tweet from the KU Athletics account.

Since 2013 — according to TeamRankings.com — 38 1/2-point underdogs or worse are 1-434.

While fans started to fill the empty pockets in the stadium throughout the game, Oklahoma eventually took the lead and won 35-23, improving to 8-0 and keeping its national title hopes alive.

Oklahoma was explosive after falling behind 17-7, putting up touchdown drives of three plays, four plays and four plays to pull ahead 28-17.
