Ames, Iowa Kansas University’s football losing streak away from Lawrence grew to 35 games Saturday in a 38-13 loss to Iowa State.
And the opponents’ post-game notes had a familiar ring to them, packed with words such as “first” and “since.” KU brings out the best in their hosts.
• “First win in a conference opener since 2002 (Kansas).”
• “Ended a nine-game conference losing streak.”
Images from Saturday's game between the Jayhawks and Cyclones in Ames, Iowa.
And on and on and on.
Cyclones running back Mike Warren set a school freshman record with 175 yards, the most rushing yards by an ISU player since Nov. 18, 2006 (Ryan Kock, 179 vs. Missouri). A 6-foot-1, 200-pound red-shirt freshman from Lawton, Oklahoma, Warren became the only Iowa State frosh to rush for 100 yards in back-to-back games. He gained 126 yards in a loss at Toledo.
Last season, Duke freshman Shaun Wilson did one better than that in a 41-3 thrashing of Kansas. He rushed for a school record 245 yards.
Iowa State’s blockers became the latest to dominate the undersized front of the Kansas defense.
“I give credit to the line,” Warren said. “...They moved people off the ball when I was there.”
