How they scored

September 16, 2006



12:01 - Kerry Meier 12 run. Kansas needed just a 99-second drive to get its first score. KU gained no yards on the first two plays but then delivered three-straight blows - a 19-yard reception by Derek Fine, a 14-yard run by Meier and a 12-yard score by Meier on a simple quarterback draw play to the right side. Jon Cornish delivered the lead block. Scott Webb kick. (Kansas 7, Toledo 0).

8:03 - Safety, Jon Cornish tackled in end zone. On 3rd-and-11, Meier dropped back and avoided a hit by Toledo linebacker Mike Alston. Alston, however, knocked the football out of Meier's hands. Cornish picked up the loose ball but was unable to get out of the end zone before Alston tackled him for the safety. (Kansas 7, Toledo 2).


10:20 - Jalen Parmele 1 run. Toledo slowly progressed down the field during a 13-play, 69-yard drive, getting help from a Brandon Duncan late-hit penalty. Parmele ran the ball for Toledo's last four plays, the last a run off left tackle that got him in. Alex Steigerwald kick. (Toledo 9, Kansas 7).

6:44 - Brandon McAnderson 2 run. Kansas benefited from great running by Jon Cornish during a 74-yard drive. Cornish had runs of 17, 9 and 33 yards, and caught a shovel pass that went for 18. McAnderson finished the drive, though, rumbling up the middle for the score. Scott Webb kick (Kansas 14, Toledo 9).

:51 - Stephen Williams 37 pass from Clint Cochran. The Rockets were facing 4th-and-15 near the end of the first half and decided to take a stab at the end zone. With decent coverage by Blake Bueltel and Justin Thornton coming over to help out, Williams still managed to come down with the jump ball in the left side of the end zone. Cochran found Nick Moore in the end zone for the two-point conversion. (Toledo 17, Kansas 14).


8:15 - Safety, Brandon Summers sacked in end zone. A Kyle Tucker punt pinned Toledo at its own 2-yard line. An incomplete pass and a 1-yard run forced Toledo into a passing situation, but Summers was flushed out and scrambled left. John Larson wrapped his ankles and brought him down in the end zone for the safety. (Toledo 17, Kansas 16).

4:26 - Marcus Henry 33 pass from Kerry Meier. After Kansas sputtered through multiple offensive drives, Meier and the passing game got it going again. An 11-yard pass to Brian Murph gave KU a first down, and Murph found Henry open in the end zone for the touchdown. The throw was low, but Henry caught the ball from his belly extremely close to the ground. A review of the play didn't overturn it. Scott Webb kick. (Kansas 23, Toledo 17).


11:49 - Richard Davis 1 run. Kerry Meier's pass glanced off Marcus Henry's hands and was intercepted, setting up a short field for Toledo at KU's 8-yard line. Four straight runs by Davis - for 3, 3, 1 and 1 yards - got the six points. On fourth down, Eric Washington wrapped up Davis from behind, but Davis fell into the end zone. Alex Steigerwald kick plunked off left upright and went through. (Toledo 24, Kansas 23).

7:19 - Barry Church 84 interception return. Kansas moved the ball downfield with three straight first downs. By this point in field-goal range, Meier dropped back and looked for Derek Fine in the flat on third down. Church jumped in front of it, picked it and ran in untouched, with nobody near him. Alex Steigenwald kick. (Toledo 31, Kansas 23).

3:55 - Dexton Fields 20 pass from Kerry Meier. Meier passed the Jayhawks back in the game after his devastating mistake during the previous drive. A nine-play, 69-yard drive was done mostly through passing, with completions thrown toward Marcus Herford, Marcus Henry, Derek Fine and Fields. The last was a wide-receiver screen that Fields was able to scramble into the end zone with. Meier kept an option and leaped over the goal line for a two-point, game-tying conversion. (Kansas 31, Toledo 31).


Jalen Parmele 25 run. After Kerry Meier threw an interception when KU was on offense in the second overtime, Parmele took the first handoff, broke tackles and scrambled right into the end zone for the game winner. (Toledo 37, Kansas 31).
