The first quarter of the Kansas-Kansas State game has been a testament to blown chances.

Both teams have blown scoring opportunities in a 0-0 deadlock.

Jacob Branstetter misfired on a 30-yard field goal after the first Kansas possession. And quarterback Todd Reesing's struggles have continued with another interception.

But Kansas State couldn't make anything of Emmanuel Lamur's interception. Grant Gregory overthrew a wide-open Lamark Brown on a fourth-down play that could have easily resulted in a touchdown.

Both teams are struggling early in this pivotal North Division battle.
