The Jayhawks Fall To Cyclones 13-10, Is Turner Gill Done In Lawrence?

For the Kansas Jayhawks, this had to be the game they circled as the one they thought they could win. In a game that was there for the taking, Kansas was unable to make the big play when they needed it most as the Iowa State Cyclones prevailed in a 13-10 victory over the Jayhawks.

KU's biggest problems were with the Iowa State qarterback Jared Barnett. The Cyclones' signal caller put together a day versus the Kansas defense as his 175 passing yards and 125 rushing yards proved to be just enough offense for Paul Rhoads' bunch. Kansas initially had a 7-3 lead in the second quarter as speedster D.J. Beshears scored on a 20-yard run, but Iowa State's Aaron Horne responded with an18-yard touchdown run in the third to give the Cyclones the lead back.

After KU was able to tie the game on a 19-yard field goal, Iowa State's Zach Guyer was able to place his second field goal through the uprights from 42 yards to secure the 13-10 victory for ISU.

At 5-4, Iowa State is just one game away from being bowl eligible but have a rough three-game stretch ahead of them with games versus Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Kansas State remaining. For Kansas, they fall to 2-7 on the season with an 0-6 conference record. Turner Gill's best chance to win might be behind him now as games versus Baylor, Texas A&M and Missouri will all be tough games to win for his beleaguered bunch.

Is Turner Gill done? We shall soon find out in the coming days.
