Notebook: Kansas' Daniel Hishaw Jr. rumbles for touchdown; Jalon Daniels sacked

Daniel Hishaw Jr. is certain he's scored more dazzling touchdowns while in high school or in youth leagues. But the redshirt sophomore running back's 73-yard touchdown catch in the second quarter of Kansas' 35-27 win over Duke on Saturday at David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium ranks among his best while with the Jayhawks. Hishaw caught a pass from junior quarterback Jalon Daniels in the left flat and turned ...

Week 4 preview: Kansas' expectations, excitement growing entering game vs. Duke

The excitement surrounding the Kansas football team is unlike anything Taiwan Berryhill Jr. has experienced. Berryhill, a junior linebacker from New Orleans, was a freshman in 2020 when the Jayhawks went 0-9. There wasn't much to celebrate last season, either, when they went 2-10 under first-year coach Lance Leipold. But amid their first 3-0 start in 13 years, Berryhill and the Jayhawks will return to David ...

Notebook: Lengthy lightning delay no problem for Kansas in victory at Houston

Week 3 preview: Kansas aims to keep perfect start intact at Houston

In past years, a 14-0 deficit after 10 minutes would have likely been enough to cause the Kansas football team to capitulate. Instead, the Jayhawks mustered the toughness, resilience and points needed to bounce back from that early hole — and then hold on again late — to win 55-42 at West Virginia a week ago. "A year ago, some of those would have gotten away from us at halftime — by halftime," coach ...

Mountain magic: Overtime interception gives Kansas 55-42 win at West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Cobee Bryant didn't care that nearly everyone on Kansas' sideline was yelling at him to down the football and end the game. The sophomore cornerback saw the end zone and couldn't stop. "I wanted to score, to be honest," Bryant said after his interception in overtime, which he returned 86 yards for a touchdown, gave the Jayhawks a 55-42 win at West Virginia. "I wanted the pick six.
