Official explains non-call of Texas player going out of bounds before recovering muffed punt | Tale of the Tait |
The official this morning told me that the refs on the field missed the call during live action and that replay could not get involved after the fact.

Keaton Perry replaces Ryan Willis late |
When David Beaty finally pulled the plug on injury-plagued quarterback Ryan Willis in the fourth quarter of the Kansas University football team’s 59-20 loss at Texas, KU’s head coach turned to third-string QB Keaton Perry and not immediate back-up T.J. Millweard.

KU volleyball upends Sooners |
