Kansas was once again not competitive in a road environment as Iowa State slowly built a lead and never let KU get anything going offensively.
The KU defense actually played well, at least in the first half, as Iowa State only scored two offensive touchdowns - and both of those drives started inside the Kansas 25-yard line. In fact, Kansas forced 9 Iowa State punts and a missed field goal - all in all not a terrible day.
But KU’s offense and special teams were atrocious, which allowed the Cyclones to build up a 24-0 halftime lead and never look back in the second half.
Peyton Bender looks less confident every week while the coaching staff continues to impress with its ineptness. Kansas continues to not execute schemes, miss tackles, miss blocks, and run off-tackle plays from the shotgun on 4th-and-1.
The circus heads to Fort Worth, TX, for a matchup with TCU next Saturday, October 21.
