Looking for its first Big 12 victory in more than two years, the Kansas football team (1-8) will take on Iowa State (1-8) on Saturday at Memorial Stadium. It marks the first career start for KU quarterback Carter Stanley, who played most of the second half in last week's loss against West Virginia.
What is everyone's expectations for Carter Stanley today?
Any extra optimism that KU will end its long losing streak in the Big 12?
Not much buzz at Memorial Stadium today. I saw as many Iowa State tailgates walking in from the parking lot as I saw KU. Very small crowd so far.
Kansas won the toss and deferred. Iowa State will start with the ball.
Opening kickoff goes out of bounds at the 2-yard line. Iowa State starting at its own 35.
No taunting penalty this time, though.
Joel Lanning at QB for the Cyclones. His first pass is a 15-yard completion.
3rd-and-long upcoming from midfield...
Lanning gets plenty of time to throw, but he throws behind Deshaunte Jones. KU forces a punt.
LaQuvionte Gonzalez muffs punt. Iowa State recovers inside the 10. And so it begins...
Lanning with more time to throw. This time he scrambles to the 5-yard line. 3rd-and-goal...
Lanning with a bad throw out of the end zone when his receiver had a step. Nice hold by the defense to a field goal.
Quiv back to return this kickoff after his muffed punt.
Quiv returns the ball to the 27-yard line. KU, and Carter Stanley, starts his first drive.
