November 2, 2003


First quarter

9:26 -- Clark Green 48 pass from Adam Barmann. KU needed only three plays to tie it. After Barmann's four-yard run and a 20-yard pass to Charles Gordon, Barmann threw a short pass to Green at the 45, and the sophomore running back took it all the way. Johnny Beck kick. (KU 7, A&M; 7)

Second quarter

9:26 -- McNeal 4 run. Beck missed a 42-yard field goal, and A&M; countered with a six-play, 75-yard drive. Jason Carter gained 29 yards on an option play, and Murphy had a 38-yard reception. Pegram kick. (A&M; 14, KU 7)

4:40 -- Barmann 1 run. Gordon's diving, 32-yard catch at the one highlighted a 10-play, 80-yard drive. Green carried four times for 23 yards. Beck kick. (KU 14, A&M; 14)

Third quarter

14:45 -- Jaxson Appel 5 fumble return. On the second play of the second half, KU receiver Derick Mills fumbled a reverse in the backfield, recovered, then fumbled again when he was hit by Byron Jones. Appel picked up the loose ball and scored. Pegram kick. (A&M; 21, KU 14)

10:22 -- FG Pegram 22. McNeal completed a 46-yard pass to Earvin Taylor, and Courtney Lewis and Derek Farmer added runs of 11 and 10 yards in a nine-play, 73-yard drive that stalled at KU's 5. (A&M; 24, KU 14)

8:07 -- Lewis 25 run. After KU punted from its own 8, A&M; took over at KU's 39 and needed only 24 seconds to score. Pegram kick. (A&M; 31, KU 14)

5:57 -- John Randle 39 pass from Barmann. Lyonel Anderson kept the scoring drive alive when he caught a 34-yard pass from Green on third-and-two from KU's 17. Kick failed. (A&M; 31, KU 20)

1:36 -- Farmer 2 run. Jerod Brooks pooched the kickoff, and A&M; started from its own 37, and the Aggies marched 63 yards in 11 plays. Tim Van Zant had a 21-yard catch on third down, and Lewis picked up another third down in KU's red zone with a three-yard run. Pegram kick. (A&M; 38, KU 20)

Fourth quarter

12:35 -- Brandon Rideau 18 pass from Barmann. Barmann completed a 36-yard pass to Mark Simmons on third-and-long, and Green later picked up a first down with a two-yard run on fourth-and-1 at A&M;'s 36. Run failed. (A&M; 38, KU 26)

1:50 -- Rideau 13 pass from Barmann. Greg Heaggans' 43-yard kick return to the Aggies' 42 gave KU a short field. A 16-yard pass to Gordon and a roughing-the-passer penalty keyed the quick scoring drive. Brooks kick. (A&M; 45, KU 33)
