The Kansas Jayhawks ended the first quarter of their game against the Rice Owls leading 10-3.
Jayhawks quarterback Dayne Crist threw a 23-yard touchdown to Jimmay Mundine with 5:30 left in the first quarter to break a 3-3 tie in what began as a very sloppy game on both sides before each offense began to find a bit of a groove.
The opening period saw two turnovers for each team, with both losing a fumble and throwing an interception.
Rice quarterback Taylor McHargue started only 2-for-7 for 21 yards but has since gone 6-for-6 for 42 yards. Crist ended the first quarter 6-for-10 for 60 yards, a touchdown and an interception.
Kansas is looking to start the season 2-0 under new coach Charlie Weis while Rice is looking for their first win of the season.
