Another week, but the same story for the Kansas football team. Once again, the Jayhawks fell behind in an early first-half hole and couldn’t recover. This time, No. 14 West Virginia scored on three straight drives in the second quarter Saturday and cruised to a 48-21 victory over the Jayhawks at Milan Puskar Stadium.

In the event you turned the TV off after Kansas was guilty of a taunting penalty on the opening kickoff, quickly followed by the standard litany of sins from the offense in the first four minutes: hold, false start and a Montell Cozart interception near the sideline, congratulations. By Tom Keegan
Taylor Martin rushed for 43 yards and sprinted 45 yards for a touchdown reception.
In search of its first victory since opening the season against FCS foe Rhode Island, the Kansas football team ventures into Milan Puskar Stadium, home of the No. 14-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers, for a night game on ESPN2. The Jayhawks haven’t won outside of Lawrence in 42 consecutive tries, dating back to 2009.
