It isn’t a traditional game, format or scoring wise, but the Kansas football program’s open-to-the public spring game — operating like a standard practice scrimmage — is Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
Montell Cozart is at QB as KU opens its situational drills at Memorial Stadium.
Defense forced offense into a 3-and-out on the first series of situational plays. Cozart completed 2 passes for 8 yards and RB Taylor Martin was stopped for a loss on a run.
On the second offensive series Keaton Perry played QB and threw 2 incompletions.
The first first down of the scrimmage comes on a Cozart pass to WR LaQuivionte Gonzalez.
LB Hudson Hall comes away with an interception of a Cozart pass to the right side.
Carter Stanley is making his QB debut of sorts in this scrimmage and begins it with 2 handoffs.
Carter Stanley his first pass attempt for 13 yards.
KU fans also are getting their first look at jr. RB James Sullivan, who just ran for 5 yards and a 1st down.
Carter Stanley completed all 3 of his pass attempts for 22 yards on his first trip to the field.
With KU going through its "sudden change" situational downs, starting at the opponents' 30, Cozart finds Emmanuel Moore for 16 yards.
LB Cameron Rosser picks off Cozart in the end zone for the 2nd defensive takeaway of the afternoon. That's 9 points if you're scoring at home — or even if you're by yourself. (Shoutout to 90s SportsCenter.)
Carter Stanley follows up his first incompletion with a 1st down completion to Austin Moses.
Moses drops a would-be TD pass from Stanley in the left side of the end zone.
Wyman kicks a 31-yard FG from the right hash.... With no defense out there.
On a 3rd-and-11 throw, Cozart misses his target for what would've been a TD. Blue hasn't scored a TD yet. Wyman kicks another FG.
New situation: Offense starts with the ball on its own 9 yard line.
