Player of the game
Lynch was as dangerous and tough as advertised. He finished with 137 yards rushing in 22 carries and threw for 235 yards. That’s a full day.
Reason to hope
Well, it’s an off week. Seriously, the Jayhawks are still probably better than they were in 2011 — even if the record doesn’t reflect that.
Reason to mope
A 1-7 start is nearly guaranteed. KU continues the Big 12 slate with K-State, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Texas. When does this team win again?
The Jayhawks get a week off before heading to Manhattan to play K-State on Oct. 6.
