Rice Vs. Kansas: Final Score And Game Recap

After a less-than-impressive victory over the South Dakota State Jackrabbits, the Kansas Jayhawks were unable to stay undefeated during the Charlie Weis era, falling to the Rice Owls, 25-24.

Back and forth in the first half, Kansas managed to secure a four-point lead heading to halftime and they quickly extended that lead to 11 with the first drive of the second half. However, those were the last points the Jayhawks would score in the game as the Owls finished with 12 unanswered points.

A Charles Ross two-yard rushing touchdown late in the fourth quarter gave Rice the opportunity to tie, but a failed two-point conversion left them behind. They were able to get the ball back, though, and a 45-yard field goal from Chris Boswell as time expired in the fourth quarter went through the uprights and gave the Owls a one-point victory.

Box Score Hero: Charlie Ross averaged over six yards per carry with 94 yards on the ground on 14 carries. His fourth quarter touchdown put the Owls back in contention.

But Did They Cover? Kansas were 12-point favorites to beat Rice.
