The Jayhawks capitalized on a 28-yard touchdown from Peyton Bender to Pooka Williams Jr., with 6:13 left in the game, before the KU defense recovered a fumble with 58 seconds remaining to seal the victory.

Saturday’s contest will be the third night game of the season for KU and its latest since kicking off the season at 9 p.m., against Coastal Carolina. It will be the latest game of the season for TCU and its first game since falling to West Virginia on the road, 24-6, on November 14.
