Ryan Willis finishes as top freshman passer in program history |
With the conclusion of the Kansas football season — a 45-14 home loss to rival Kansas State — Chapter 1 of the Ryan Willis era is now complete, and the true freshman quarterback who played in 10 games and started the final eight finished his first season with the Jayhawks as the program's all-time leading freshman passer.

KU volleyball sweeps finale |

"It means an awful lot," Snyder said after the victory. "I have been on the other end of it, and so you don't like that. I appreciate all the people in the state of Kansas. Everybody has a side and it means a lot to so many people. It means a lot to KU people just like it means a lot to Kansas State people, so therefore that makes it very meaningful to me for that reason, because our people care so much."

David Beaty: KU seniors deserved proper sendoff |
Led by first-year head coach David Beaty, the Kansas University football program made sure to send its seniors out on a high note off the field during Saturday's season finale, a 45-14 loss to rival Kansas State at Memorial Stadium.
