Kansas Jayhawks Football at TCU Horned Frogs Recap

KU suffers the ultimate embarrassment on prime-time national TV as officials resort to a running clock in the fourth quarter of a 43-0 blowout.

NCAA Football: Kansas at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports


Coming into the game, we knew TCU had a good defense. They ranked #25 in total defense, #17 in points allowed per game, and #20 in Defensive S&P. For comparison’s sake, ISU ranks 36, 44, and 40 in those respective categories before games played today.


The Jayhawks finished the first half with more negative plays (9) than total yards (3). Kansas never crossed midfield. For most of the game, KU had negative offensive yardage. When the final horn sounded, Kansas finished with 21 yards of total offense.


Additionally, any “progress” we saw by the defense last week is gone, as TCU put up 475 total yards at a 6.78 yards per play clip.


Kansas has now tied the NCAA record for consecutive road losses at 44, and looks to shatter that record as long as Zenger and Beaty are at the helm. When you think of unbreakable records, you'll think of Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak and whatever number KU's losing streak reaches.

There’s just not much else to say. Fire everyone.

But start with #FireZenger.
