Jason Bean threw for 287 yards and 1 touchdown. Bean took a shot to the leg in the second half which saw him limp to the sideline only to return after one play. The extent of his injury is not known at this time.
Mello Dotson also went down in the first half and left the game. Dotson, who had a pick six for the second straight week today, is a huge part of the Kansas defense. We are awaiting update on his condition at this time.
Kansas is now 7-2 for the first time since the Bush administration. This is a huge road win and puts Kansas in 3rd place in the Big 12. They will return home to face Texas Tech next weekend.
