LAWRENCE | Somehow, Kansas kept its rhythm during a combined 2 hours and 15 minutes of weather delay. The 20th-ranked Jayhawks lead Baylor 31-3 at halftime thanks to 17 points off of three Bears’ turnovers.
The kickoff, originally scheduled for 11:30 a.m., was delayed until 1:15 p.m. because of a relentless thunderstorm and lightning in the area. Play began, and 36 minutes later, it was stopped because of a few random strikes of lightning to the east.
The second delay came immediately after an 88-yard kickoff return by KU junior Marcus Herford that gave the Jayhawks a 10-3 lead.
Quarterback Todd Reesing hit wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe for one score, and running backs Jake Sharp and Brandon McAnderson each ran for a score.
