It's Senior Day for the Kansas football team. The Jayhawks (1-9 overall, 0-7 Big 12) haven't won since their season opener against Rhode Island. In their 2016 Memorial Stadium finale, they'll try to topple Texas (5-5, 3-4).
And if you're interested in a subplot across the sideline, ESPN is reporting that Texas administrators are receiving "extreme pressure" from top boosters to dismiss Charlie Strong, opening up a head coaching vacancy to hire Houston coach Tom Herman. I'd imagine if KU shocks the world with an upset win, it'll be Strong's last game at Texas.
If you couldn't tell from Nick Krug's picture, Jayhawks in blue helmets, red jerseys today.
So what does everyone want to see out of the Jayhawks today (not including a win)? I think it would be nice to see the defense get back on track after a sluggish performance in the second half against Iowa State last week.
Kansas wins the toss and defers. Longhorns get the ball.
KU gets a re-kick after the ball fell off of the tee on Wyman's kickoff.
The ball stays on the tee and Wyman boots it to the end zone. Longhorns starting at their own 25.
And there's that. First play is a 75-yard touchdown reception by Jocorey Warrick.
Can Carter Stanley respond with a TD drive?
KU called for 12-men in the huddle on its second play.
Carter Stanley buys time in the pocket but his throw forces Tyler Patrick out of bounds on a potential big gain. KU goes 3-and-out.
Longhorns will start second drive at the 31.
Kansas defense looks OK when not giving up long touchdowns. Daniel Wise with a sack on 2nd down.
Texas goes 3-and-out on 2nd drive. KU starting at its own 24.
In case you were wondering, KU has 5 punt returns this season (not including fair catches, letting the ball bounce, etc.) for a total of -5 yards.
Great play call on 3rd-and-long. Stanley flips a shovel pass to Ke'aun Kinner for a 15-yard gain up the middle.
Stanley tries to throw over the middle on 3rd-and-a-mile and it's nearly picked off. KU to punt.
Looks like a running into a kicker penalty upcoming...
Penalty is declined after a decent punt. Texas starts at its own 29.
