Close to 20 seconds of clock ran off between the end of Hill’s run and the Kansas timeout, which was called just before TCU’s successful field goal.
Senior University of Kansas linebacker Courtney Arnick didn’t exactly need extra motivation Saturday in his second start of the season. But Arnick found some anyway before the game when his mother, Carla, joined him and KU’s other captains at the 50-yard line for the pre-game coin toss.
The Jayhawks haven't won a road game since 2009. The clock is ticking on David Beaty.
(Mr. Ed says: Is Berry Tramel a complete idiot?)
In the third quarter, he turned a third-down pass near the line of scrimmage into a 67-yard run.
A couple of years removed from his time in Lawrence, Wiggins remembers all of the expectations for his one-and-done season. Wiggins said he’d only seen Jackson’s highlights, but he was asked if had any advice for the 6-foot-8 freshman from Detroit.
"To come back and tie to up and dominate the second half was good," Francis said. "I was really happy with how we played in the second half." Still, the early blunder loomed large as the Jayhawks fell to 3-1-1 in Big 12 play after a match that featured 43 fouls between the two teams.

The SEC loves a good connivance, but the culture embarrasses itself sometimes. Not to get all high and mighty, but I was embarrassed for some of my colleagues. They needed heroes, villains and page views.
Michigan and Rutgers made history on Saturday night, though it wasn't the kind of history Rutgers will want anyone to remember.
The moral of the story: Don't offer a discount based on Michigan's score right before a game against Rutgers.
Hurricane Matthew brought a torrential downpour and awful field conditions to Raleigh, but NC State was able to knock off the Irish at home, 10-3. Both offenses could manage just a field goal apiece, but the Wolfpack were able to pull in front on a special teams play.
While one normally wouldn’t make too big of a deal of a fan taking out his frustrations, the fact that he was hauled off by university police and that it’s a school professor (i.e. a co-worker of Bielema) does add a few layers on to the story.

Maryland's Isaiah Davis was thrown out at the start of the second half after he turned himself into a heat-seeking missile and lunged at Julius, a truly awful cheap shot that rightfully led to Davis' ejection. It's one thing to deliver a good natured, legal hit to let Julius know he can expect some physicality right back at him as the season progresses. It's another entirely to hit a guy with a cheap shot that could lead to a serious injury.
"Beatdown" isn't the word. Neither are "rout" or "clobbering." The word to describe what Georgia Tech's football team did to Cumberland does not exist, because we've never had to invent it, because nothing like it has happened before or since.
On the 100-year anniversary of this game, we proudly present this very special episode of "Pretty Good," a show about stories that are pretty good.
Good grief, Kansas State. Someone needs to talk to you all about your touchdown celebrations, because these ones are ... well ... unorthodox.
