The Baylor Bears on Saturday defeated Kansas, 41-14 keeping the Jayhawks without a win in conference. The victory was Baylor’s first in the Big 12 this season. Here are three things we learned about Kansas on Saturday.
1. Lack of a passing game hurts: Against Baylor, Kansas managed just 96 yards passing. Starting quarterback Michael Cummings passed for 81 yards, on 9-19 passing with two interceptions. Dayne Crist got into the action a little, passing 2-7. The lack of a passing game is causing teams to key on the Jayhawks rushing attack, slowing that down.
2. James Sims continues to get better: Even with the Jayhawks season imploding at the seams, the running game continues to be a big plus. Sims rushed for 126 yards vs Baylor, while backup Taylor Cox got into the action rushing for 71 yards. Tony Pierson is another back the team can count on.
3. Defense looks tired: Baylor totaled 666 total yards in the game. Quarterback Nick Florence passed for 367 yards and three touchdowns, while Glasco Martin and Lache Seastrunk combined for 260 rushing yards. Wideout Terrance Williams totaled 137 receiving yards on 10 receptions. A game, that many thought Kansas could win quickly turned into a blowout in the third quarter as the defense failed to slow this quick Baylor offense. A lack of depth may have hurt their cause.
