Oct. 2, 2010
WACO, Texas – It didn’t turn out to be the homecoming they wanted for the 38 Texas natives on the University of Kansas football roster, as the Jayhawks fell 55-7 to Baylor Saturday afternoon at Floyd Casey Stadium.
Kansas fell to 2-3 overall and 0-1 in the Big 12 while Baylor improved to 4-1 overall and 1-0 in the league.
In an ugly game full of penalties and turnovers, Kansas finished with 271 total yards compared to 678 for Baylor. After committing just one turnover in the last three games, KU coughed the ball up four times against the Bears.
Redshirt freshman QB Jordan Webb finished 16-of-28 passing for 171 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
Webb connected with junior WR Daymond Patterson for a 19-yard touchdown strike in the second quarter for KU’s only points of the day. The pass capped a drive that went seven plays and 70 yards in 3:01. At the time it cut the BU lead to 17-7, but the KU fans in attendance only saw points go up on the wrong side of the scoreboard from there.
Statistically, Patterson led Kansas with six catches for 53 yards and the score. D.J. Beshears had 12 carries for 47 yards to lead the ground attack.
Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin was impressive, finishing 26-of-36 for 380 yards and three touchdowns. Baylor did not turn the ball over.
Two Baylor receivers had over 100 yards. Terrance Williams finished with four catches for 101 yards and two touchdowns, while Josh Gordan had four grabs for 161 yards and two scores.
Defensively, Kansas was led by three players with career-high double-digit tackles. Lubbock Smith had 12, Steven Johnson posted 11 and Olaitan Oguntodu recorded 10.
Kansas has a bye week before facing Kansas State on Thursday, Oct. 14 at 6:30 p.m. on FSN.
