Bender nearly picked off on a pass over the middle. Kwamie Lassiter was intended receiver. KU to punt.
Cole Moos with a great punt to the 3-yard line, but nice return by Amari Coleman to the 15-yard line. First Jayhawk just missed on open field tackle.
No sign of Steven Sims on that first drive. Or Daylon Charlot.
Nice run stop by Osaze Ogbebor on CMU's first down play.
KU with only 3 down linemen and Mike Lee rushes up to the line of scrimmage to tackle QB Shane Morris on a read option. 3rd-and-9 upcoming...
Mike Lee with a tackle on CMU WR Mark Chapman just short of the first down marker. CMU to punt. KU should get decent field position. Steven Sims back to return the punt.
Quan Hampton gets a huge block from Deron Thompson and picks up 13 yards on a jet sweep. Hampton, a true freshman, can fly.
Chase Harrell stays on his feet and runs to the first down marker. Nice job keeping his balance.
Deron Thompson trips as he catches the ball for a short gain. Had a little open field in front of him.
Bender puts the ball on the money to Chase Harrell for a 1st down. Nice looking slant route.
Khalil Herbert's first carry of the game goes for 6 yards.
Ryan Schadler shows off his quickness, moving KU inside of the 10-yard line. Great juke.
Still no sign of Steven Sims on this drive.
Deron Thompson carries the ball to the 1-yard line. Steady drive.
Bender way off on a fade pass to Chase Harrell. 3rd-and-goal from the 1.
False start on Antione Frazier. Ouch.
Bender overthrows Chase Harrell. Gabriel Rui out for the FG. Disappointing end to a solid drive.
Rui converts on a 23-yard FG. 3-0 lead.
Liam Jones kick into the end zone. Touchback once again. CMU starts at own 25.
