No. 10 Oklahoma State Cowboys Vs. Kansas Jayhawks: KU Within Striking Distance At Halftime

The Kansas Jayhawks are within striking distance of the Oklahoma State Cowboys at halftime. OSU leads KU 20-14 through two quarters at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kan.

Kansas put up 14 points in the first quarter with two drives over 77 yards. QB Quinn Mecham hit Tim Biere for a touchdown less than three minutes into the game to give KU a 7-0 lead. OSU responded with a touchdown and a field goal in the next two drives until KU's RB James Sims added a 24-yard touchdown run.
