The day of reckoning is here. Winless, rebuilding Kansas football (0-4 overall, 0-1 Big 12) takes on offensive juggernaut and No. 3-ranked Baylor (4-0, 1-0).
Get ready to see some touchdowns. We’ll see if the Jayhawks can score enough early to keep this from getting ugly.
Baylor leads the NCAA with 745.3 yards per game and 63.8 points a game.
KU averages 391.2 yards and 22.0 points.
Get ready to see some points scored at Memorial Stadium, in bunches.
We've got some injuries to report to start things off today: WR Bobby Hartzog out indefinitely with a right knee injury.
WR Tre' Parmalee, arguably KU's top WR, is out indefinitely with a concussion.
DE Damani Mosby hyperextended his left elbow at Iowa State last week and will miss today's game, be reevaluated next week.
As we knew, QB Montell Cozart is out indefinitely with a left shoulder sprain and QB Deondre Ford is out for the year with torn ligaments in his right thumb.
Just saw an interesting link.... Since 2003, 64 college football teams have been 46-point underdogs (as KU is today) or higher.... The favorites are 64-0 in those games but 36 of the underdogs covered and 2 more pushed... That's what Kansas is playing for here today. Kickoff in about 20 minutes.
Wyman touchback sets BU offense up at its own 25 to start this drive. Here we go....
Coleman and Cannon already have catches and Linwood has a 4-yard gain. BU offense moves fast.
QB Seth Russell throwing at Ogletree a lot early.
Russell actually has 2 incompletions already. So there's a surprise.
Linwood's third carry moves him to 30 yards on this drive.
Well, that took 2:16. 75 yards on 11 plays. Coleman TD catch from Russell. First of many to come, most likely.
CB Brandon Stewart is doubtful today with a groin injury. Wow. That explains the early reps for Ogletree.
Speedy KU returner Ryan Schadler gets 12 yards on the return. KU will set up at own 26.
Taylor Cox is the first RB to touch it. Assuming Kinner will still get the bulk of the carries.
Ryan Willis' first pass was dropped by Derrick Neal.
On second throw, Barbel draws pass interference.
Willis has time to find Emmanuel Moore open on the right side. Wonder if BU will just sit back and play base defense or bring heat early.
Nice moves by Willis. He pump fakes then takes off for an 8 yard gain and a 1st down.
