SportsBeat KC: Finding the deeper meaning in KU’s near monumental upset of Oklahoma

·1 min read

Kansas lost its 17th straight football game against Oklahoma last weekend, but none of them played out quite like this one. The Sooners won 35-23 but trailed by 10 late in the third quarter.

It was easily the most encouraging showing by coach Lance Leipold’s first KU team. So what can we take from the outcome?

Here at the daily SportsBeat KC podcast, we posed that question to Kansas beat writers Jesse Newell and Gary Bedore, who broke down how the game unfolded. We also discussed the game’s biggest play, turned in by Oklahoma freshman quarterback Caleb Williams: You know, the forward fumble.

After a break, we catch up with KU basketball — picked to win the Big 12 — and examine the latest player to commit to Bill Self’s program: big man Ernest Edeh Jr.
