3 TCU passes and a whole lot of run calls wipe out Jayhawks

Quarterback Max Duggan only needed to complete three of his 11 passes to help TCU football demolish Kansas on Saturday night at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium. The Horned Frogs’ rushers proved too unstoppable for the relative absence of an air attack to matter in a 59-23 rout of the Jayhawks. Plus, the KU defense ceased to function on each of Duggan’s three completions — all of which resulted in a touchdown.

Jayhawks eager to see what type of impact interim O-line coach John Morookian makes

When Les Miles fired Luke Meadows as Kansas football’s offensive line coach with just three weeks left in the season, it had plenty to do with the Jayhawks’ play up front throughout an 0-7 start. While speaking Monday with media members for the first time since what Miles described as “a tough decision,” though, KU football’s head coach chose to focus on the future and how he thinks interim O-line coach John Morookian will help the blockers.
