I’ll be honest, motivation to get this final recap out is/was lacking. I can’t believe you really want to read about it, but kudos to you if you do. I’ll try to make it brief.
Baylor averaged 7.6 yards per play to KU’s 3.7 yards per play. Kansas turned the ball over six times. The Jayhawks were just 2-14 on third downs, while Baylor converted 8-14.
For the most part, the Kansas defense once again limited Baylor’s big plays - the bears had just one play go for more than 30 yards - but the Bears moved the ball up and down the field however they wanted.
The only thing Kansas ever got going was Pooka Williams in the rush game. However, even that didn’t get going until the second half. While Pooka finished with 116 rush yards for the game, the Jayhawks as a team had just 29 yards on 11 carries in the first half.
Everything. The weather. The offense. The defense. The crowd. The playcalling. The execution. Everything was bad.
I take that back. Everything was ugly. Like most fans, I gave up in the second quarter and did something else with my afternoon.
Carter Stanley had a terrible Senior Day, which makes me a sad panda. He was just 13-26 for 95 yards with 3 INTs. Stanley reportedly asked coaches to take him out of the game so Manny Miles could get some reps on Senior Day as well. That’s a GOAT move and I’ll not hear any negative remarks about Stanley.
Manny Miles went 3-6 for 24 yards, a TD and an INT.
Pooka Williams rushed for 116 yards on 22 carries. Pooka added 27 more yards on 3 receptions.
Dom Williams picked up 28 yards on 3 carries.
Velton Gardner had 14 yards on 4 carries.
Andrew Parchment had 5 receptions for 43 yards and a TD.
Daylon Charlot added 30 yards on 4 receptions.
Gavin Potter led the Jayhawks with 6 tackles.
Kyron Johnson also had 6 tackles, including a sack.
Kyle Thompson hit 6 punts for a 48.0 average.
