LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Kansas football team scored 28 unanswered points to lead Baylor 31-3 at half at Memorial Stadium.

With the game knotted at 3-3, KU junior Marcus Herford returned a Baylor kick 88-yards for a touchdown.

In the second quarter, KU mounted a nine-play, 81-yard scoring drive. Sophomore Jake Sharp carried the load on the ground with 42 yards on six carries. The drive was capped by a 10-yard touchdown catch by freshman Dezmon Briscoe from sophomore Todd Reesing to make the score 17-3.

Sharp later scored a four-yard run to make the score 24-3 as KU pinned BU deep in it’s own territory on a Kerry Meier punt down to the six yard line.

Following an interception by KU freshman Chris Harris, the Jayhawks used three plays in 36 seconds just before halftime when senior Brandon McAnderson scored on a 15-yard run to make the score 31-3.

The contest was originally slated to start at 11:30 a.m. but was delayed 1:38 due to thunderstorms. Late in the first quarter, lightning made the teams return to their respective locker rooms for another 30-minute delay.
