After leading for most of the fourth quarter, the Kansas football team suffered a 24-23 loss against TCU on Saturday at Memorial Stadium when TCU junior kicker Brandon Hatfield made a 37-yard field goal with 1:21 left.
The Jayhawks (1-4) drove down the field in the final minute, setting up a 54-yard field goal attempt for kicker Matthew Wyman, which went wide right.
Kansas led by as many as nine points, 23-14, when sophomore quarterback Ryan Willis — who made his first start of the season — ran for a 21-yard touchdown at the end of the third quarter.
But the Horned Frogs (4-2) dodged an upset when Jaelan Austin caught a 25-yard touchdown pass at the beginning in the fourth quarter to set up Hatfield's game-winning kick in the final minutes.
