Well now, Kansas is sure finding itself in uncharted waters, isn't it? After it's 76-39 drubbing of Nebraska on Saturday the Jayhawks improved to 9-0. The last time they started 9-0? 1908. And as bad of a day as it was for Nebraska (see ya, Callahan!), it was a record breaking day for Kansas. In fact, 7 team and individual records were tied or broken on Saturday.
It's at this time that Nebraska fans might want to navigate away from this blog (but do come back tomorrow!!). The Jayhawks scored 48 points in the first half and 76 overall. Both were records for points scored against Nebraska. The 115 combined points broke the record for a game involving Kansas, and their 34 first downs tied the school record from 1923.
Individual records? You bet. It was a good day to pad the season statistics.
Individual recordsKansas has turned out be be a pretty good team this year, and well, Nebraska is increasingly bad. Jayhawks fans usually start getting pumped up this time of year, but it's because of basketball, not football. But this year things are different, and that's the case all around the college football landscape.
