Kansas football trails in-state rival Kansas State 31-0 at the half at Memorial Stadium here Thursday evening. The Jayhawks forced Kansas State to punt on its first possession of the game, but was unable to force the Wildcat offense off the field for the remainder of the half.

Kansas State opened the scoring with a 38-yard field goal by senior Josh Cherry. Cherry’s field goal capped an eight-play, 33-yard drive by the Wildcats on their second possession of the game. The Wildcats then got back-to-back scores on the ground by senior quarterback Carson Coffman, before senior running back Daniel Thomas picked up a rushing touchdown for KSU. Coffman completed a 13-yard pass to sophomore tight end Travis Tannahill to conclude the first-half scoring.
