TCU 34, KANSAS 30

Box score

Senior tight end Jimmay Mundine turned in one of the all-time great receiving games by a Kansas tight end against TCU on Saturday in a 34-30 loss.

His seven-catch, 137-yard afternoon, which included a 13-yard touchdown reception and a 67-yard catch and run that set up another TD, was the most by a KU tight end since 1974, which is as far back as the KU records go.

“That one run he had was nothing short of amazing,” KU coach Clint Bowen said of the 67-yard scamper that featured several nifty moves by Mundine.

The early TD catch was his sixth of the season and his 100-yard day combined with that from Nigel King (5-128) marked the first time since 2009 that a KU pass-catching duo has topped the century mark in the same game.

Junior quarterback Michael Cummings' career-high 332 passing yards also marked the most by a KU quarterback since Todd Reesing threw for 338 yards against Duke in September of 2009.
