After giving up points at a record pace in the first two games of Big 12 play, the Jayhawks settled down on Saturday in their win against Texas Tech. KU’s guard-centered attack continues to be lethal for opposing teams, and it’s reflected in the team’s extensive winning streak, which is up to 14 in a row.

The two top teams in the country hail from the Big 12 conference. Everybody was so wrong about this league, weren’t they? Eh, not so fast, because with the exception of the top three teams, the rest of the conference is pretty mediocre. That said, road wins are always difficult to come by, and Kansas will be tested this week when the Jayhawks travel to Norman for a date with the Oklahoma Sooners. As always, we preview the game and break down keys to winning the contest.
