Gameday Breakdown: KU football at Ohio |
Now the Jayhawks find themselves in the unenviable position of needing to play mistake-free offensively while identifying the right spots to get greedy on defense. A rare positive turnover margin — on the road no less — would do wonders for their chances of upsetting Ohio and winning the program’s first road game since a 2009 trip to UTEP (during the final season of the Mark Mangino and Todd Reesing era).

Former Ohio assistant Jesse Williams helps KU enter road game well informed |
For five years, the Ohio sideline inside Peden Stadium served as defensive line coach Jesse Williams’ workspace. It’s where he educated Tarell Basham, whom Williams helped mold into the 2016 MAC Defensive Player of the Year and a third-round NFL Draft Pick.

"We got into a lot of 20-all scores at the end of sets, and it came down to them playing cleaner than us," Kansas head coach Ray Bechard said. "We just weren't as organized as we needed to be.

I'm disappointed that we couldn't be a little better in the end of sets that we lost."

A late push by the Jayhawks to level the match came up short as the Kansas soccer team fell to the 25th-ranked Utah Utes Friday night. Junior Grace Hagan scored her fourth goal of the season with just over two minutes to play to pull her team within a goal, but that's as close as KU would get, dropping its second-straight match.
