The path for the Kansas Jayhawks who are still searching for their first win of the 2020 season did not get any easier on Saturday as they traveled to Norman, OK. for a matchup with the #19 Oklahoma Sooners

Despite an interception from Kenny Logan Jr., for the second-straight game and a career game from freshman running back Daniel Hishaw Jr., Kansas fell to Oklahoma 62-9 Saturday afternoon at Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

The Sooners used three rushing touchdowns and one passing score to go with a field goal to build a 31-0 lead in the second quarter. Field goal kicker Jacob Borcila got Kansas on the scoreboard right before halftime when he connected on a 32-yard field goal as time expired in the half.

Hishaw, a true freshman from Oklahoma, started for the second-straight game. He finished with 73 yards on 10 carries, after scoring his first-career touchdown a week ago against Iowa State. Fellow true freshman Luke Grimm led the team in receiving yards with 61 on four catches.

The Jayhawks fell to 0-7 on the season and 0-6 in Big 12 Play. The Sooners, ranked No. 19 in both major polls, improved to 5-2 overall and 4-2 in the league.

Kansas will have next weekend off with its third and final open week of the season. The Jayhawks will return to action on Nov. 21 against Texas.
