Woods the key to beating Sooners
When quarterback Bill Whittemore injured his collarbone early against Kansas State, the Jayhawks' potent offense sputtered, gaining only 84 yards over the last three quarters. Last year Whittemore carried the team before spraining his knee with three games left, at which point the Jayhawks fell apart.
Mangino will need to avoid such a collapse, and he'll have to chose between Brian Luke, who filled in for Whittemore last year, and John Nielsen, neither of whom distinguished himself against the Wildcats.
