Kansas defensive back Derrick Neal (7) watches Central Michigan players Cory Wiilis (8) and Logan Hessbrook celebrate Willis’s touchdown in the first half of the Jayhawks game against Central Michigan Saturday, Sept. 9 at Memorial Stadium.
Earlier this week, when Kansas football coach David Beaty began watching video of the Jayhawks’ next opponent, the footage seemed strangely familiar — and not just because KU faced Ohio at Memorial Stadium in 2016. As Beaty caught himself up on how the Bobcats’ trip to Purdue played out, he saw Ohio’s fortunes take a turn for the worst in a fashion comparable to KU’s turning point against Central Michigan.
