COLLEGE STATION, <?xml:namespace prefix=”st1″ ns=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags”?>Texas – Kansas and Texas A&M are locked up in a scoreless defensive struggle at halftime at Kyle Field. Through 20 minutes, both teams have had scoring chances go fruitless.<?xml:namespace prefix=”o” ns=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office”?>

Kansas looked as if it would go up in the first quarter only to see a Scott Webb field goal blocked. Another field goal opportunity hit off the left upright.

After putting together an impressive drive in the final minutes of the half, Texas A&M handed to their bulky and dependable running back Javorskie Lane on a fourth and one. The run was stuffed by James McClinton and James Holt for a two yard loss. Kansas took over on downs and ran out the clock.

The score marked the sixth time Kansas shut out its opponent in the first half this season and the first time the Jayhawks were held scoreless in a half.

Senior RB Brandon McAnderson led the Kansas offensive attack with 100 yards on the ground, 94 of which came in the first quarter. His first-half effort was good enough to mark his third 100 yard rushing game of the season.

As a team, Kansas finished the half with 110 yards on the ground and 60 through the air. Texas A&M was able to move the ball for 68 yards both in the air on the ground.
