Kansas vs. Baylor score update: Jayhawks trail Bears, 17-7, after 1st quarter

The Baylor Bears have taken a 17-7 lead over the Kansas Jayhawks in a Big 12 Conference matchup after one quarter. The Jayhawks (1-7, 0-5) allowed the Bears (3-4, 0-4 Big 12) to score the game's first 14 points, and will need to score some points if they'd like to get back into the contest.

The Bears' touchdowns came on throws by senior quarterback Nick Florence. The senior found Terrance Williams on a 11-yard scoring play that capped a 11-play, 84-yard drive on the first possession of the game.

Then, after a defensive stop, Florence connected with Lache Seastrunk for a 68-yard catch-and-run. An extra point by Aaron Jones gave Baylor an early 14-0 lead with 10:09 to go in the first quarter.

Kansas closed within 14-7 thanks to a stunning 58-yard rushing touchdown by running back James Sims. The play was the first and only of a drive that lasted just 10 seconds.

A 35-yard field goal by Jones capped the quarter's scoring.
