Kansas quarterback Montell Cozart (2) takes off on a run during the second quarter on Saturday, Oct. 22, 2016 at Memorial Stadium.
For four years Montell Cozart called the University of Kansas football program home. The quarterback from nearby Kansas City, Mo., played in 27 games, started 18 and became a much-respected leader within the KU locker room, but saw KU win eight games and lose 40 before deciding to finish his career elsewhere. Saturday afternoon, Cozart will experience something that proved impossible at Kansas, when he suits up for No. 25 Boise State at the Las Vegas Bowl. By Benton Smith

Montell Cozart bounced back from a two-week benching well enough for head coach David Beaty to say Cozart will start Saturday in Norman vs. Oklahoma. Reading what else Beaty said leads to conclusion that he Cozart will start the remainder of the season, barring injuries. By Tom Keegan
