Kansas not messing around early
By David Ubben
It'll take more than one, but Kansas made it look easy on its opening drive against Oklahoma State, scoring to take an early 7-0 lead.
That has to feel good for an offense that had just 87 yards of offense in a 20-3 loss to Nebraska last week.
Just three minutes into this week's game, the Jayhawks have 80, and they did it boldly. Quarterback Quinn Mecham hit Chris Omigie on the game's first play for a 36-yard pass and drew a blatant pass interference call in the end zone on a reverse pass by Johnathan Wilson.
Mecham hit tight end Tim Biere for the 12-yard score.
Kansas couldn't ask for a better start, but now comes the hard part: stopping Oklahoma State's offense.
