Clint Bowen breaks down KU's season-ending loss to K-State and the future of Kansas football
KU athletic director Sheahon Zenger discusses Clint Bowen's 9 weeks as interim head coach of KU football.
Senior tight end Trent Smiley, playing in the final game of his career, picked up his first touchdown as a Jayhawk, a third-quarter snag in the back of the end zone that pulled Kansas to within 38-13. The grab was just the fifth reception of Smiley's career.
Senior defensive tackle Keon Stowers' pass break-up midway through the second quarter ended a K-State drive and put the Jayhawks in position to get their first points of the day.
KU's extra point team erased any hope of the Jayhawks gaining some momentum after Nick Harwell's second-quarter touchdown grab when it allowed the Wildcats to block Matthew Wyman's kick and made K-State's lead 17-6 instead of 17-7. It was just one point, but it pumped life back into Bill Snyder Family Stadium.
Juinor wide receiver Rodriguez Coleman may have impressed KU punter Trevor Pardula with his booming kick of a Michael Cummings pass in the first quarter, but it cost KU a chance at points early in the game.
