For the Jayhawks, who started at quarterback, Jason Bean or Jalon Daniels? Have other Big 12 teams handled Kansas as well as Texas did this year?

On their first possession in overtime, Texas scored a touchdown and added the extra point to take a 56-49 lead. The vehicle’s drive to the end zone was rather trouble-free.

To make matters worse for Texas, a penalty after the touchdown moved the starting line for Kansas’s ensuing drive to halfway between the goal posts. After scoring a touchdown, the Jayhawks attempted and successfully completed a two-point convert.

Kansas Stunning Comeback

A one-point victory for Kansas proved to be a stunning comeback as quarterback Jalon Daniels connected with tight end Jared Casey following a stoppage to discuss strategy.

Kansas’ victory in Austin was their first ever and their 76 points were their biggest since scoring 76 against Nebraska in 2007.

“I couldn’t be happier for our men,” Leipold exclaimed. So much has been put onto them. They fought, and they continued trusting in our plans. We lost the advantage but resolved to play our best for the whole 60 minutes. We exceeded expectations. I think this is a great foundation for us to continue to build upon, and I am extremely pleased with them.

While carrying the ball 24 times, Neal carried for 143 yards and three touchdowns, contributing to the victory. Aside from his two catches for 26 yards, one of which went for a score, he also caught a pass for 19 yards. To win his first game of the season, Daniels passed for 202 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.

From the first kickoff, the Jayhawks played inspired football against the Longhorns. Kansas drove 75 yards in 13 plays on their opening drive, capping up the drive with a 3-yard touchdown run by Neal. The drive took 7 minutes and 2 seconds.

That loss devastated Texas and stunned college football fans across the country.

However, true freshman wide receiver Xavier Worthy has been a bright spot for Steve Sarkisian’s squad. The lightning quick wide receiver extended his record-setting season with 14 receptions for 152 yards and three scores in the win over Kansas. Worthy now holds the freshman record for both receiving touchdowns and receiving yards.

Last Words

In the first overtime period, Texas received the ball and eventually scored on a scoop-and-stretch touchdown reception by Marcus Washington. However, the Jayhawks’ Devin Neal scored on a 2-yard run after taking advantage of the short field created by the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.

Although Daniels deserves all the credit for Kansas’ victory, redshirt freshman fullback Jared Casey should not be forgotten as the recipient of the game-winning throw on the last 2-point convert. In fact, it was his sole catch in four years at Kansas. His bio page at Kansas did not include any statistics.
