(Boston, MA, 09/13/19) Kansas Jayhawks running back Khalil Herbert (10) carries the ball past Boston College Eagles defensive back Mike Palmer (18) during the third quarter of an NCAA football game at Boston College in Boston, Mass., on Friday, September 13, 2019.
The Kansas football team’s receivers and quarterback weren’t the only ones who benefited from the offense spreading the field at Boston College, where the Jayhawks often lined up with three or four receivers. The resulting spacing allowed KU running backs Khalil Herbert and Pooka Williams to flourish, as well, thanks to one-on-one scenarios in the open field. By Benton Smith
After the Jayhawks put up 567 yards and rolled, 48-24, at Boston College Friday night, though, even businesslike senior QB Carter Stanley couldn’t mask his affinity for the calls that spread the field and put the Jayhawks’ best skill players in more one-on-one opportunities. “Sheesh,” Stanley said after KU’s air and ground display at BC. “It was fun.” By Benton Smith
