Texas defeats Kansas, 35-13

  • 2:30 p.m., Nov. 2, 2013
  • Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, Austin, TX

FINAL: KU fumble changes game in 35-13 loss to Texas

Texas' Malcolm Brown scored four rushing touchdowns, leading the Longhorns to a 35-13 victory over Kansas on Saturday afternoon in Austin, Texas.

The game changed midway through the third quarter when KU trailed 14-6 and started a drive at the Texas 46 after a poor Longhorns punt.

KU quarterback Jake Heaps was sacked by Cedric Reed and lost the ball, and Texas' Chris Whaley scooped it up, running 40 yards for a TD. Suddenly, the Jayhawks were down 21-6.

Other than the fumble, Heaps had his best game in weeks. The junior completed 11 of 21 passes for 160 yards.

Rodriguez Coleman caught two passes for 85 yards before leaving in the second half with a right knee injury.

Brown rushed 20 times for 119 yards, while the Longhorns (6-2) finished with 221 total rushing yards.

Isaiah Johnson added a pair of interceptions for KU's defense.

KU (2-6) will play at Oklahoma Stata at 3 p.m. on Nov. 9.

Box score

HOW THEY SCORED

Second Quarter

14:19 — Malcolm Brown 2 run. Anthony Fera kick. After a strong start by the Kansas defense, this Texas drive was extended when Billy Owens ran into the punter deep in Texas territory on fourth-and-five. That kept the drive alive and paved the way for a 15-play, 92-yard scoring drive by the Longhorns, who picked up a couple of big pass plays from Case McCoy to Jaxon Shipley, including a 31-yard gain that set up first-and-goal. (UT 7, KU 0).

2:31 — Malcolm Brown 3 run. Fera kick. With the Kansas offense unable to get anything going, the Longhorns finally made their favorable field position pay off again with a seven-play, 56-yard drive capped by Brown's second TD run of the game. Brown carried three times for 25 yards on the drive, including a 21-yard scamper that set up the score. Wide receiver/weapon Daje Johnson also carried the ball three times on the drive and Texas' offensive line controlled KU's front seven. (UT 14, KU 0).

:00 — Ron Doherty 21 field goal. The KU defense got the stop it needed late in the half and a poor punt by Texas set the Jayhawks up in Longhorn territory with a chance to score. Despite going backwards on their first play, the Jayhawks cracked the scoreboard as time expired in the first half, thanks to a great grab by Rodriguez Coleman on a third-down throw from Jake Heaps. Coleman overcame pass interference to haul in the pass that set up the chip shot field goal from Doherty, who had been demoted to second team but came on to replace the ineffective Matthew Wyman, who missed a 31-yard try on KU's first possession. (UT 14, KU 3).

Third Quarter

12:48 — Ron Doherty 27 field goal. Credit Jake Heaps and Rodriguez Coleman for this score, as well. On the second play of the second half, Heaps hit Coleman down the seam for a 42-yard gain. Pass interference in the end zone followed and that gave KU a first-and-goal from the UT 10 yard line. Three incomplete passes followed and the Jayhawks settled for three and pulled to within one score. The drive covered 65 yards in six plays and 2:12. (UT 14, KU 6).

6:25 — Chris Whaley 40 fumble return. Fera kick. After a big stop by the Kansas defense, the KU offense took over with excellent field position and had a chance to negotiate a short field to tie the game. Instead of adding to the momentum, though, the offensive line was blown up on the first play and Jake Heaps was sacked by Cedric Reed, who caused a fumble and then watched his buddy, Whaley, rumble untouched to the end zone to put UT ahead comfortably. (UT 21, KU 6).

0:45 — Malcolm Brown 2 run. Fera kick. During the past few weeks, Texas quarterback Case McCoy has developed some nice chemistry with wide receiver Marcus Johnson. That connection came through big time on this scoring drive, which covered 57 yards in nine plays and 3:37 and featured a 32-yard grab by Johnson on third and five to get the drive off and running. (UT 28, KU 6).

Fourth Quarter

9:07 — Malcolm Brown 30 run. Fera kick. With the Kansas offense stuck in the mud, Texas' offense continued to get good field position and chances to run and the Longhorns took full advantage. This drive spanned 63 yards in five plays and 2:10 and was capped by Brown's fourth TD run of the day on a fourth-and-one play. (UT 35, KU 6).

3:39 — Montell Cozart 20 run. Doherty kick. With the game out of reach, KU kept things on the ground late and picked up some nice chunks of yardage from Darrian Miller, James Sims and Cozart. The drive spanned 75 yards in nine plays and 5:28 and featured back-to-back runs by Cozart, who took an option around the right side and then outraced a couple of UT defenders to the corner of the end zone. (UT 35, KU 13).

Lawkan

Make two good passes in the red zone and take away the fumble its 24-28.

Pepper_bar

KU beats the spread! A Vegas victory, if not a moral one.

Darin Bradley

And Charlie limps across the field with another loss.

Joe Ross

Game over

FINAL
Kansas 13
Texas 35

Jesse Newell

Texas comes away with the victory.

Pepper_bar

ISU game is in Ames... no way KU wins that one. WVU and KSU are both at Memorial.

Darin Bradley

Let him throw the ball !!!

Lawkan

and there is Herod lol.

Joe Ross

I think mindset means a lot. Youve gotta be a little hard-nosed as a coach.

Lawkan

Billy Owens and Charles Brooks in at receiver.

Joe Ross in reply to Darin Bradley

Wow...thats surprising.

Duane Rice in reply to Shockhawk10

You will see that next year when we have 10,000 season tix. sold

Darin Bradley in reply to Joe Ross

WV beating TCU on the road.

Jesse Newell in reply to Shockhawk10

Considering Weis' salary, I think it is a priority. He makes more than Baylor's Art Briles.

Joe Ross in reply to Duane Rice

why...because we kick the "S" out of them? lol (did you see what I did there?)

Duane Rice in reply to Joe Ross

there is no KSU

Shockhawk10

If we stop covering the poor product being placed on the field and stop attending games, will the athletic department pay attention and make football a priority?

Joe Ross

I like Kansas over Iowa State, and I think out of WV and KSU we might pick up one.

Joe Ross

I still think Kansas picks up 2 wins out of its last 3 games.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Pardula now too?? Sweet merciful crap, man….

Darin Bradley

Texas puts in their second team

Joe Ross

Key injuries today...Stowers, Coleman, Pardula

Jesse Newell

Eric Kahn kicking off. Means Pardula might be hurt.

Lajayhawk in reply to Lawkan

FSU has the capability to beat anyone not named Oregon or Alabama by 40. But I think they win today by 14. A game I wouldn't touch with the rivalry, though. I'd take FSU in most situations normally.

Joe Ross in reply to Jesse Newell

...will likely be.

Nwk_jayhawk74 in reply to Joe Ross

Meanwhile back from the book club, a touchdown!

Lajayhawk

And this is the problem with 4 TD lines. It makes absolutely no difference to Texas if KU scores right here. And it would be better for them to just run out the clock.

Jesse Newell in reply to Pepper_bar

I went back and looked, and I said 31-14. That might be close.

Pepper_bar

Jesse, I'll be happy to eat crow from our pregame predictions if this score holds up. Not a great KU performance, but -28 was sure a lot of points.

Darin Bradley

Not sure he's thrown a pass today. Happy for the TD but not really developing him. Hope burning his red-shirt isn't a waste.

Duane Rice

Im going to say i called that TD drive.

Lawkan

the Miami point spread seems odd too.

Lajayhawk

Covering...

Jesse Newell

Cozart with his first career rushing TD.

Jesse Newell

Cozart for the 20-yard TD. Our bettor rejoices!

Joe Ross

Cozart scores

Duane Rice in reply to Pepper_bar

I see it is 2 books combined.

Joe Ross

...dont mean to offend anyone.

Ian Ballinger in reply to Joe Ross

I kinda agree with you. prove me wrong God... PLEASE... PROVE ME WRONG

Pepper_bar in reply to Duane Rice

Well, there are sort of two endings... the twist is very well done, then the ending-ending is iffy.

Joe Ross in reply to Jesse Newell

KU could have Jesus and we'd still lose. He saved the world, but he couldnt save this game.

Jesse Newell

Sims looks like he has an extra burst after Miller's two good runs.

Cshjhawk

all of Cozart's plays are option runs! No pass pkg.

Duane Rice in reply to Pepper_bar

Interesting because the ending of the book blew my mind

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Ordinarily, I totally agree. I look at 28 and think, KU lock. But with this team this year… those kind of mistakes are impossible to predict, and KU can have them at any time. They could lose by 1 or 50 on any given day. Bad to bet either way.

Joe Ross in reply to Jesse Newell

Shot ourselves in the foot with miscues early. And I think the game would have had a different feel had we converted on some of those plays.

Cmill1221 in reply to Lajayhawk

You are 100% right. There are a ton of other games. But 28.5 should be covered. Especially vs a team that has only scored 35 once this season (now twice). Pitiful.

Jesse Newell in reply to Lawkan

Too bad KU doesn't have Bo Jackson.

Pepper_bar

3.5 out of 5 stars

Jesse Newell in reply to Todd Simpson

This is actually KU's best offensive game in Big 12 play yardage-wise. Just hasn't resulted in points.

Pepper_bar in reply to Duane Rice

Me and Mrs. Pepper just got back from seeing it. We liked it a lot, but the best part is the middle, not the end.

Lawkan

Cozart runs the Tecmo Bowl playbook.

Nwk_jayhawk74 in reply to Jesse Newell

That's our Charlie, $3 mil- 300+lb paperweight. One fake punt goes bad, he turns into Marty Schottenheimer. Take a chancee early in the game when in might make a difference.

Todd Simpson

poor offensive gameplan for kansas

Jesse Newell in reply to Lajayhawk

I felt like 28 was too much. But so much is chance. Again, without the fumble-six, KU bettors are golden.

Joe Ross

Miller looked like the Miller of Old on that run!

Todd Simpson

its predictable to have 1 qb run and 1 pass

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Anyone who takes any action on KU isn't a very smart gambler. This team is extremely difficult to handicap. And Texas isn't much easier either. There are many WAY easier games and teams to predict out there ATS than KU, basically every single week.

Duane Rice

did anybody go see Enders Game

Jesse Newell in reply to Cmill1221

You'd have been just fine without Heaps' fumble-six. That's a huge swing.

Pepper_bar

KU could still score some garbage time points... this game as a betting event is far from over.

Jesse Newell in reply to Cmill1221

Still have time here.

Duane Rice

Now you put Cozart in for a feel good prevent touchdown to build his confidence.

Joe Ross

I wonder, if youre Charlie Weis, how you keep your players motivated week in, week out. We still have a chance I think in our last 3 games...WV, Iowa State in Ames, and KSU

Cshjhawk

Well, I'm off to Kazakhstan for a few weeks. Need not worry about KU football!

Cmill1221 in reply to Jesse Newell

I'm one of them! Not cursing him tho. It takes a total team effort to suck this bad. I honestly believe I could coach an offense to 6 points. There is ZERO excuse for how inept our offense is.

Todd Simpson in reply to Lajayhawk

but with the way the offense is playing I doubt it

Ian Ballinger

i'm starting to join the KU fans who say "bring on basketball". football has been nothing but depressing for me this year. KU can't win against ANY team, save for lowly LA Tech. My high school football team gets 45'd 4 games in a row, and then our coach just walks out on us. This is just a depressing football season

Chuck Wagstaff in reply to Joe Ross

We might score 17 in November

Lajayhawk in reply to Todd Simpson

Still time left.

KU bettors cursing Matthew Wyman.

Joe Ross

I think I guessed 41-17. That score is within reach

Todd Simpson

Texas has covered the spread

Jesse Newell in reply to Cshjhawk

Dollar signs!

Cshjhawk

That was a Vegas call!

Jesse Newell

Play stands.

Duane Rice

Dollar signs

RXDOC

I'm gonna watch a movie. Thinking scary. Maybe that will scare the loss out of me!

Jesse Newell

KU might have a chance on this one. That looked close.

Duane Rice

this is a huge call for you betters.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Jinxed. As a Cubs fan, I should be used to it, but still…...

Chuck Wagstaff

Looks like we'll be oh-for-Mack Brown. Damn, I would like to beat that jerk.

Duane Rice

I dont think most of us know what a play maker is. A play maker is someone who can take a 5 yard gain and have the speed and turn it into a TD. Pierson is the only one who can do that on this team.

Jesse Newell

Was the QB's knee down?

RXDOC in reply to Joe Ross

Well we ain't scoring so it's on the Defense.

Jesse Newell

Brown with his fourth TD run, this from 30 yards.

Darin Bradley

QB falls down and they still score

Joe Ross

the only drama that remains is whether or not Kansas will cover.

Jesse Newell in reply to RXDOC

Yeah, Weis is being extra cautious. Pierson was dizzy without contact last week.

RXDOC in reply to Joe Ross

What the HELL??????????? Stowers, Colemand and Miles??? GEEZ!! Can we get a fricken break!!!!!!!1

Cohawk83

The kitties are pitching a shutout against the Clones

Joe Ross

This game is OVER

Joe Ross

TX will go for it...brown goes for the TD

Jesse Newell

I was just about to say that other than Stowers, Coleman might be KU's most important player. And then, Stowers goes down. Yeesh.

Joe Ross

Stowers now injured. Brown did not get the 1st down.

RXDOC in reply to Jesse Newell

Yep sitting out till when??? Indefinitely?

Jesse Newell in reply to RXDOC

Pierson, but ...

Lajayhawk

Miles is injured now too?

RXDOC in reply to Joe Ross

Oh my bad!

Joe Ross in reply to Joe Ross

also not able to get it streamed, some of them...
