More news and notes while feeling good knowing Josh Freeman is who we thought he was.
Kansas Outlasted 37-34 at USF
Quarterback Todd Reesing proceeded to lead a KU rally, engineering back-to-back touchdown drives that he capped off with touchdown passes to wide receiver Johnathan Wilson and running back Angus Quigley, respectively.
Reesing hooked up with Wilson on an 18-yard strike to cut the USF lead to 34-27, and then hit Quigley on a screen pass that the junior running back took 14 yards for the game-tying score.
The Jayhawks had a chance to win the game with under a minute to go, having advanced the ball to their own 40-yard line with 0:41 to go in the game. However, Reesing's pass on 1st and 10 was picked off by USF defensive back Nate Allen and returned all the way to the KU 27-yard line. The Bulls ran the clock all the way down to 0:02, and Bonani's field goal attempt hooked inside the right upright to give USF the victory.
Reesing had a remarkable game in a losing effort, completing 34 of 51 passes for 373 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. The junior from Austin, Texas, also had a rushing touchdown, a four-yard scamper in the second quarter that gave KU a 20-3 lead. The 17-point margin proved to be the Jayhawks' largest lead of the game.
Wilson had the game of his life for the Jayhawks, catching 10 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns, all three career highs.
The Jayhawks started quick, covering 71 yards in eight plays on their first drive of the game after forcing an early USF punt. Reesing capped off the drive by connecting with Wilson for a 36-yard touchdown catch-and-run to give KU an early 7-0 advantage. The touchdown reception was the first of Wilson's career.
With the loss, the Jayhawks fall to 2-1 on the season. USF improved to 3-0.
Next up for Kansas is Sam Houston State next Saturday at Kivisto Field at Memorial Stadium. The game will be televised by Fox College Sports, scheduled to kick off at 6:00 p.m. CDT.
