  • Memorial Stadium, Lawrence, KS

FINAL: Kansas rallies from 28 down in fourth quarter, shocks CU, 52-45

James Sims' 28-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter completed a furious comeback, as KU came from 28 points down in the fourth quarter to defeat Colorado, 52-45, on Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

KU's 35 points scored in the fourth quarter were the most ever scored in school history in one quarter. It was the second-most points scored in the fourth quarter in a comeback in NCAA history.

It also was KU's biggest comeback in school history.

The Jayhawks' defense held in the final minute; CU had two passes fall incomplete from the KU 7-yard line in the final eight seconds as KU held on for the win.

Sims rushed 20 times for 123 yards and four touchdowns. Quinn Mecham was 23-for-28 for 252 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions.

Tyler Patmon added an interception and fumble recovery for touchdown.

KU improves to 3-6 and will play at Nebraska on Nov. 13.

Hey the season isn't over yet.. I am surprised as anybody else..Did coach Gill come alive finally on the sideline to let the team know he wants some results. Like and others have said,,there is no reason for this team to lose they way they have, because the talent is better than what has been shown in it's loses.

Ksseahawk

Right, 3-9. But, the Hawks needed this and hopefully, Turner and the gang can use the fourth quarter as an example of how to play for the entire 60 minutes. Nice win but let's build from this.

Rock Chalk.
