    Newly hired Coach Forever will take over at Kansas following the dismissal of former Coach Mark Mangino on allegations of A Kansas type "WaterGate" incident. Coach Forever has an impressive resume as far as TF games played and coached. I am excited about the opportunity to take this team and see what we can do. It won't be easy, but I think we can be competitive in this league."

    Now for the game. The Kansas Jayhawks came out and imposed their will on a struggling UTEP team early and often. The JayHawks scored 28 points in the first qtr, lead by their talented Senior QB, Todd Reesing. Reesing was 13-17 for 249 yds and 4 td's in the first half as Kansas took a 35-0 halftime lead.

    All offensive starters were pulled to keep the score from getting out off hand. Backup true freshman RB Toben Opurum had 23 car for 101 yds and td's in the second half as KU cruised to victory over UTEP. The win improves KU to 2-0(0-0) on the season. Next week, Kansas hosts ACC foe Duke BlueDevils.

    WEEK 4



    Kansas had a much needed test for the first time this season. Southern Miss. gave the Jayhawks all they could handle in the first half. Each team trade a pair of score in the first half to go into the intermission tied at 14 apeice.

    However, the second half was the Todd Reesing show and a show he what he gave. He threw 4 td passes in the second half and the KU defense stiffened up as KU blew the game wideopen scoring 35 points in the second half of the contest. Reesing finished the game with 425 yds and 5 td's with no int's.

    The win keeps Kansas a perfect 4-0(0-0) on the season going into a bye week before opening Big 12 play against a good coached Iowa State team.

    Final Score:

    KU- 49

    Southern Miss- 21

    Iowa State vs Kansas

    The lag was pretty bad! I had to wait and catch it in between skips to press a play. All in all, still a very well played game.

    Kansas was able to mount a sound running against the Cyclones. Kansas's Jake Sharp lead the way with 26 car for 159 yds and 1 score. The Jayhawk defense also played very well holding Iowa State to just 115 yds of total offense. "We played a well, balanced game. Iowa State was a comendable opponent and just didn't have any big plays in the ball game. My hat goes off to Coach bcduggan and their organization.

    The win improves The Jayhawks to 5-0(1-0) on the season. Next week, KU travels to Boulder, Colorado to take on the Buffaloes, who knocked off #3 ranked Texas last week.

    Final Score:

    Kansas- 27

    Iowa State- 0

    #7 Kansas vs #15 Colorado

    The #7 Kansas JayHawks traveled to Folsom Field Saturday to take on the #15th ranked Colorado Buffaloes. The game started with Kansas taking the opening kickoff and driving down the field, but had to settle for a field goal to go up 3-0.
    Colorado would answer right back with a drive of their own. They drove down the field with some key runs from tailback Lockridge, who capped the drive with a 1 yd td plung to take the lead 7-3. The second qtr was all Kansas as they scored 17 unanswered points to take a 20-7 halftime lead.
    Colorado would respond with a mythodical drive that took a mere 1 min, 30 sec. Buffalo QB Hansen would hit Simas on a 34 td strike that would close the gap to 20-14. Both defenses stiffened up as neither team could get anything going. It wasn’t until midway through the fourth qtr that the struggle was broken. Kansas RB Jake Sharp was able to break free and hit the sideline for a 31 yd td scamper that would seal the win for Kansas.

    #9 Oklahoma vs #6 Kansas

    Kansas pulls off a monumental upset over the sooners at Memorial Stadium. The game was back and forth as Kansas took a 7-0 lead at the end of the first qtr. The second qtr saw Oklahoma take a 14-7 lead on a 4 yd td run from D. Murray. On the very next drive, Oklahoma's B. Jackson intercepts a pass from Todd Reesing andtook it 61 yds for the score.Just like that, Oklahoma would recapture the lead. Kansas would add a late field goal to trail at the half, 14-10.

    The Kansas defense would bow up in the third qtr. Kansas defense would force 2 int's and Todd Reesing scored 10 unanswered points in the 3rd qtr to take a 20-14 lead.

    On the very first drive of the fourth, Oklahoma drove the ball down the field and scored on a 11 yd pass from L. Jones to recapture the lead 21-20 with 4:14 remaining in the game. On the very next drive, Todd Reesing would go up top to Johnathan Wilson for a 73 yd td pass. The 2 point conversion was no good. Oklahoma would again drive down the field and cash in with 1 yd td plung from D. Murray. The 2 point conversion failed, which would ultimately be the deciding factor in the game.

    With only 2:04 remaining, Kansas hit on several 1st down conversions, chewing up as much clock as they could. Kansas got the ball the way down to the 2 yd line with 4 sec. remaining. Kansas sets up for the kick, Oklahoma calls time-out to ice the kicker. The ball is snapped, the kick is up, IT'S GOOD!!! Kansas Wins!!!

    The win improves Kansas to 7-0(3-0) on the season. Next week, Kansas travels to Texas Tech to take on the Red Raiders.




    Final Score:

    Kansas- 29

    Oklahoma- 27
