Rutgers fails to show up at Kansas, gets obliterated 55-14. - On the Banks
This was an absolutely embarrassing loss and fans need to face the reality that if Rutgers can’t do leaps and bounds better than this, they will not win another game. On the other hand, it’s just one game that featured six turnovers. Rutgers could win next week.

Sunday morning poll: Did one player lose the game? - On the Banks
In the close to thirty years I have watched football and actually remembered it, I have never blamed a loss singularly on one single player. The first game I remember with absolute certainty was the Redskins defeat of the Bills in the Super Bowl. Had I remembered one year earlier, I still would not have blamed the Bills 20-19 loss on Scott Norwood, to add some perspective. Football is a team sport, but as Saturday’s contest fell more and more out of reach

Rutgers Football: Alarm Bells Ring In Epic Loss To Kansas - On the Banks
After Saturday’s catastrophic 41 point loss to Kansas, there is no way to sugarcoat the fact that the Rutgers football program is a complete mess on the field. The loss to the Jayhawks, long considered the worst power five program in college football, was the ultimate embarrassment. There is no other way to characterize Rutgers football right now other than being in full crisis mode. That’s not being an alarmist, that’s being a realist.

Dominant defense propels Kansas past Rutgers, 55-14 - Kansas Jayhawks
Kansas football's hard-nosed defense came up big for the second-straight week, forcing six turnovers in Kansas' dominant 55-14 victory over Rutgers on Saturday afternoon inside David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium.

No. 18 Jayhawks to face No. 4 Aggies Sunday - Kansas Jayhawks
The No. 18 Kansas Jayhawks close out nonconference play with a bang when they journey to College Station, Texas to meet former Big 12 foe Texas A&M on Sunday, Sept. 16. The Jayhawks and the No. 4 Aggies are two of just 17 undefeated teams remaining in the NCAA. Kickoff from Ellis Field is set for 1 p.m., on SEC Network+.

David Beaty pleased with KU's win, but not dwelling on it
When Beaty was chasing his first win and then finally attained it, the ensuing press conference was filled with emotion. Beaty was again emotional when winning his first FBS game. When the Jayhawks snapped their 46-game road losing streak last week, some of that emotion seemed to return.

Kevin Feder on improving O-line: 'The sky is the limit for us'
Things could not have started worse this season for the Kansas offensive line. The line was abysmal is KU’s opening night loss to Nicholls State, giving up six sacks and nine tackles for loss in addition to three poor snaps by center Alex Fontana.

Does KU football have a QB controversy? Here's the latest
If you're trying to figure out who the starting quarterback is going to be against Baylor, you can pretty much narrow it down to two candidates — with all due respect to Carter Stanley, who competed for the job in Fall Camp, and Miles Fallin, who actually got into the game against Rutgers when Stanley's helmet was knocked off and he was forced to come out for a play. (And if I'm going to name all the quarterbacks, I'll go ahead and throw Billy Maples' name into this paragraph, too.)

A look at Peyton Bender's mindset in KU's starting QB battle
Look no further than Peyton Bender, who started to begin and end last year and won the starting job to begin 2018. Bender threw for a touchdown and then had another one dropped in his season-opening start. He was dealing and the KU offense was coming to life...

Although Peyton Bender started at quarterback, Miles Kendrick (6-for-11 passing, 66 yards, one touchdown throw and one rushing TD), subbed in on multiple possessions in the first half and replaced Bender (8-for-12 passing, 73 yards) in the second half.

The third start of his senior season began in similar fashion to the previous two weeks for Kansas quarterback Peyton Bender, with him watching from the sideline on occasion while backup Miles Kendrick took over for the offense.

Pilfer party: KU's 6 takeaways power blowout win over Rutgers |
KU’s takeaway-happy defense left the field with possession of the ball three times in the first quarter alone. Then, during the timeout leading up to the second quarter, former KU star quarterback Todd Reesing capped his Ring of Honor ceremony by leaping and delivering one of his signature fiery fist pumps.
