Kansas Head Coach Charlie Weis Pleased With Defense Against TCU

Kansas Jayhawks head coach Charlie Weis was pleased with how his defense played in Kansas' 20-6 loss to No. 17 Texas Christian on Saturday.

Despite the fact that the Jayhawks allowed TCU to rack up 487 yards of total offense, they forced the Horned Frogs to fumble four times, including three in the red zone. Being able to create turnovers is something that Weis feels can help the defense in future situations.

"The old bend-but-don’t-break mentality … you can gain a lot of confidence (from that)," Weis said. "Because now, every time a team gets down there, they’re expecting to make a play on defense to turn the ball over."

Unfortunately, Kansas was unable to capitalize on all of the turnovers, as it failed to score a touchdown despite accumulating nearly 400 total yards.

"To have a chance at winning (against TCU), you know you’re gonna have to throw the ball," Weis said. "And we just have to do it better."

Weis and the Jayhawks will now hit the road for the first time this season, as they get set to face Northern Illinois at 2:30 p.m. CT on Saturday, Sept. 22.
