In a game that had a lot of first half scoring, only saw the Jayhawks scoring ten of the forty-one points that were put up. The Jayhawks were able to move the ball on Texas A&M’s defense, which wasn’t a shocker, but were unable to score on them. Things were looking good for the KU offense, until late in the half when an under thrown pass to the endzone from Webb was picked off by Ron Miller. Miller was able to take the interception back 83 yards before being brought down by Daymond Patterson. The Aggies would score on the short field, boosting their lead to 31-10. The real bad news for the Jayhawks was that quarterback Jordan Webb was hurt trying to make a tackle on Miller during the return. Webb was seen on the sidelines later in the game without his pads on. This doesn’t look good for a speedy return barring what injury he has. To make things even worse for the Kansas offense, backup quarterback Cale Pick left the game with a concussion in the second half. This prompted Beshears to play some wildcat quarterback until Quinn Mecham came in late. Mecham was planning on getting red shirted this year, but with to heavily banged up quarterbacks that have no expected return dates, Turner Gill has to go with him. Next week the Jayhawks go into Ames, Iowa to face the Iowa State Cyclones. The Cyclones who are riding high coming off of a huge upset win at Texas this week. Maybe the Cyclones will be looking past Kansas this week coming off of that emotional win in Austin. But something tells me even if they are looking past the Jayhawks it won’t matter, KU is too banged up on offense, and can’t stop anyone on defense.
