KU, Texas A&M end first half in scoreless tie

COLLEGE STATION, Texas | Kansas breached the Texas A&M 10-yard line twice and came away with nothing in a scoreless first half at Kyle Field.

The Jayhawks’ first chance resulted in a blocked 27-yard field goal attempt by Scott Webb. Their second foray ended with another missed Webb attempt, this time off the left upright.

The good news for KU is that its defense came to play again and thwarted the Aggies’ only chance at points by stuffing 268-pound Texas A&M running back Jorvorskie Lane on fourth-and-1 from the KU 11.

The Jayhawks ran the ball effectively and were led by running back Brandon McAnderson, who had 94 yards on 7 carries in the first quarter alone.
