2. HE DIDN’T EVEN START
Keith Ford opened at running back for the Sooners. Ford, a sophomore, had three rushes for 10 yards — one a yard loss — as Oklahoma went three-and-out on its first series. Many have mentioned that Gordon racked up his 408 yards last week in three quarters.

3. HE HIT KANSAS EARLY AND OFTEN
It didn’t take long for Perine to make an imprint. After a Kansas three-and-out, Perine took the ball on his first carry of the game 49 yards for a touchdown to give the Sooners a 7-0 lead.
