David Beaty wasn’t the first football coach to say he needed to look at the film before evaluating a player’s performance. And if the fourth-year leader of Kansas’ program lets the minutia of the Oklahoma State game film outweigh the big picture that unfolded on the field, he won’t be the first to do that either. But if Beaty does nitpick until he sees enough to justify basing his decisions on which quarterback to start on how each one matches up against the next opponent, he would be making a mistake.
After four weeks of starting Peyton Bender at quarterback and rotating the senior in and out of the lineup to varying degrees each game, Kansas football coach David Beaty took an entirely different approach against Oklahoma State on Saturday. Not only did Carter Stanley replace Bender at QB, but the redshirt junior took every snap during KU’s 48-28 homecoming loss to the Cowboys, in front of 18,364 fans.
New starting quarterback Carter Stanley only did so much for the Kansas football team’s chances Saturday at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium, where 18,364 fans saw Oklahoma State dismember the Jayhawks’ defense. When the Cowboys weren’t gashing the Jayhawks with Justice Hill runs they directed Taylor Cornelius to take deep shots down the field. The senior quarterback obliged, giving OSU a complementary attack KU couldn’t solve in a 48-28 home loss
It was an all too familiar result for the University of Kansas football team. Oklahoma State scored first and never looked back during a 48-28 victory over Kansas at David Booth Memorial Stadium Saturday. The Jayhawks (2-3, 0-2 Big 12) struggled to move the ball offensively at times, and were overmatched on the defensive end to suffer their second loss in as many weeks during conference play.
Two teams coming off a loss in their respective Big 12 openers, Kansas (2-2 overall, 0-1 conference) and Oklahoma State (3-1, 0-1), look to get back on track at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.
Oklahoma State was the only school in the nation last year to finish with a 6-0 record on the road and the Cowboys make their 2018 road debut in Lawrence.
