Kansas showing signs of life

Kansas forced a fumble in Iowa State territory on the Cyclones' first offensive snap, recovered it and drove 20 yards for a 34-yard field goal to take a 3-0 lead.

The way this season has gone for the Jayhawks, that's definitely notable. Kansas has lost its three conference games by 48, 52 and 35 points, but today might be the day the Jayhawks begin to show signs of life. Turner Gill's squad even forced a three-and-out after scoring.

Iowa State is coming off the best game of its season so far, beating Texas in Austin last week. So far, that momentum looks like it's done nothing for the Cyclones, who have 15 yards of offense and a turnover in their first two drives.
