Things getting heated at halftime

Oklahoma punches it in

Kansas still fighting

After Kenny Logan picked off Gabriel, Bean & Co. capitalized. The Kansas quarterback hooked up with Arnold for another score. This one went for 28 yards and cut Oklahoma’s lead to 42-28.

Got that back

Gabriel hit Brayden Willis for a 26-yard score, Oklahoma’s seventh touchdown of the game. The Sooners led 49-28.
