Kansas enters AP Top 25 for second straight year

After opening the season 4-0, and most recently beating BYU 38-27 Saturday, the Kansas football team has been rewarded Sunday with the No. 24 spot in the Associated Press' Top 25 rankings. This is the second year in a row that KU has been ranked after a hiatus of nearly 13 years between appearances.

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.

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 ...
