The Jayhawks (9-1) were powered by a 12-0 run in the final set and 13 team blocks.
Kansas has won three straight matches.
Senior outside hitter Allison Mayfield finished just one dig shy of her second double-double of the season, but led both teams with 19 kills to add to her nine digs and two aces. The Jayhawks racked up eight service aces while swinging at .273.
Defensively, junior middle blocker Tayler Tolefree and freshman outside hitter Chelsea Albers broke out for seven blocks apiece. Redshirt sophomore middle blocker Caroline Jarmoc added four blocks.
