  • Kansas' defense surrendered its first touchdown since the Oklahoma game -- a streak of six quarters -- when CU quarterback Joel Klatt hit tight end Joe Klopfenstein with a four-yard pass at the 11:36 mark of the third quarter. Iowa State's only TD last week was on a fumble return. ...
  • Brandon Watkins, listed as the Jayhawks' third-string tight end, made his first career start, but regular Lyonel Anderson also played on the first series and finished with five receptions good for a game-high 60 yards. ...
  • Ronnie Amadi opened at right cornerback in place of Theo Baines for the second straight week. Baines, who started the first seven games, has been nursing a knee injury and has missed the last two contests. ...
  • In the first half, Colorado converted five of nine first-half third downs, but gained only 139 yards to the Jayhawks' 180, and the Buffs were guilty of three turnovers -- two interceptions (by Charles Gordon and Rodney Harris) and a fumble (recovered by Gordon). Gordon had another theft in the fourth quarter and took over the Big 12 Conference lead with six. ...
  • KU was guilty of only two turnovers, but one led to a touchdown -- Randle's fumble in the first quarter that CU's Dominique Brooks returned 41 yards for a score. ...
  • Middle linebacker Kevin Kane, who had a career-high 12 tackles at Iowa State last week, eclipsed that with 13 stops Saturday. ...
  • Kansas gave up its first punt return for a touchdown when Colorado's Stephone Robinson rambled 48 yards into the end zone with :12 remaining in the third quarter. ...
  • Flags rarely flew. Colorado was whistled just three times and Kansas twice. The Jayhawks lost only 10 yards to penalties, a season low. In fact, after being plagued by flags in the first seven games, Kansas has had only five in the last two. ...
  • Kansas finished with 342 yards of offense to Colorado's 236, and the Buffs had twice as many turnovers (four to two), but KU couldn't overcome CU's fumble-recovery TD and punt return for a score. ...
  • KU players came out wearing mineshaft-blue leggings to match their jerseys. ...
  • Kickoff temperature was an unseasonable 69 degrees under sunny skies with a 6 mph breeze out of the southwest. ... KU officials announced the attendance 38,214. KU has averaged about 41,500 fans a game going into Saturday's home finale against Texas.
