Notebook: New conference foes KU and BYU share key historical memory

The way the trajectory of Kansas football history has gone, Jayhawk fans will have the memory of any bowl win (or appearance, even) firmly lodged in their brains. BYU’s visit this week may have dredged up the memory of a particularly prominent game, the 1992 Aloha Bowl that saw KU beat the Cougars for its first postseason win in 31 years. That matchup was the only meeting between the two schools prior to ...

Kansas football surges past BYU in second half for 38-27 victory

No one told Lance Leipold, when he was considering joining Kansas as its head coach back in 2021, that the school hadn't gone 4-0 in consecutive years for over a century. “I’m glad I didn’t do all my research," Leipold quipped Saturday night. As it turned out, the Jayhawks needed just three seasons under Leipold to end what became a 108-year drought. They used an opportunistic defense and a clock-chewing ...

Week 4 preview: KU offense will need to play cleaner game against polished BYU

One of the most common drills media members were able to observe during Kansas football's fall training camp included receivers and running backs enduring a ball-security gauntlet. They had to hold on to the ball while dodging sudden obstacles, tackling dummies and punch-out attempts from KU staff members, running through tunnels and bouncing off exercise balls.

KU soccer sustains road loss at Oklahoma State

The Kansas defense left enough space in the box for Oklahoma State's Logan Heausler to head in a cross from Alex Morris just a minute and a half into Thursday night's game in Stillwater, and that was all the Cowgirls needed to earn a 1-0 victory. KU (3-2-5, 0-1-1 Big 12) sustained its first loss of conference play. The Jayhawks had been able to rally for a road draw at Oklahoma a week earlier, but no such ...

Texas and Oklahoma lead Big 12 power rankings; KU ekes out third place

For the first time this season, the top two spots in the Big 12 Conference power rankings are unanimous. Texas received all 14 first-place votes for the second week in a row, and Oklahoma was the pick for the second spot in voting from a panel of beat writers that regularly cover the Big 12. The next five spots are a toss-up as 12 points separate the Nos. 3-7 spots between Kansas, UCF, Kansas State, TCU and ...

Pre-BYU roundup: Logan's progression, the role of the scout team and more

Kenny Logan Jr. was responsible for what could have been a defining play for the Kansas defense Saturday night. When that didn’t pan out, he made another one. The senior safety and defensive leader chased down Nevada running back Ashton Hayes as he was headed toward the goal line to force a potentially game-changing fumble; of course, like so many other Nevada fumbles Saturday, it wound up in the hands of a ...
