Although he started in the secondary for Kansas in six of the final seven games of 2020, Nate Betts headed into the offseason looking for a way to make even more of an impact during his final year with the Jayhawks. And his search led him to a new job entirely.
Late in a season that had been defined by blowout losses, the Kansas football team’s defense delivered an inspired effort Saturday at Texas Tech, albeit in another defeat. The 16-13 setback in Lubbock, Texas, was a far cry from recent weeks, when Iowa State put up six touchdowns, Oklahoma piled up eight TDs and TCU’s offense crossed the goal line five times.
