The Kansas Jayhawks had one of their worst performances in a very long time as they were shutout 43-0 by the Texas Longhorns. The Kansas offense was held to only 46 yards of offense with 48 passing and minus two rushing the ball. Anytime Kansas had the ball they were not able to do anything against the Texas defense.
Kansas had five drives that resulted in negative yards, 10 drives were five plays or less and their longest drive was seven plays and that was at the end of the game. Only three first downs were recorded for Kansas compared to Texas' 35, Kansas went 1-for-10 on third downs while Texas went 11-for-16 and the time of possession was lopsided in Texas' favor 44:07 to 15:53 for Kansas.
The defense did not do much better by allowing 43 points which was actually one of their better outputs. Only the game against Northern Illinois where Kansas allowed 42 points and the game against McNeese State where Kansas allowed 24 points were better outings. The 43 points also was seven points better than their season average of allowing 50 points per game.
The rushing defense also allowed 441 yards which was their second worst output of the season only to the 604 they allowed to Georgia Tech. Kansas is now 2-6 on the year and next week they take on Iowa State which may provide some relief in the loss column.
