GAMETIME: First quarter updates

November 28, 2009

END OF FIRST QUARTER: Two completions get Missouri out of bad field position following penalty as the quarter ends.

KANSAS 14, MISSOURI 3: Reesing plunges in to make it official. Missouri defense has gotten too little pressure on him in the backfield.

Long pass play gets Kansas near the goal line. Originally called a TD, it will be placed at the one.

KANSAS: 17 passes, 3 rushes

Sean Weatherspoon cheers Kansas’ decision to call timeout. They have just one left.

Jarrell Harrison decks Jake Sharp out of bounds, but not before another big run after the catch. Missouri defending this play poorly.

Missouri kicks it short again and KU takes over at own 30. 3:47 left in the first quarter.

KANSAS 7, MISSOURI 3: Grant Ressel converts, and the Tigers get points this time.

Gabbert to Jackson doesn’t go on the home run ball. And Mizzou will kick a 43-yard field goal.

Nice running by Blaine Gabbert. A world of difference from his ability a few weeks ago. Tigers are in Jayhawk territory.

KANSAS 7, MISSOURI 0: Dezmon Briscoe was wide open over the middle, and Kansas fans wave the wheat.

– I’m surprised officials didn’t call a penalty on Reesing for his celebration. That looked like a taunt.

– Kansas passing all over Missouri D right now. Down inside the 30.

– Reesing gets protection and gets KU out of trouble on 3 and 11 from the one. First down.

– A promising Missouri drive stalls and Jake Harry will punt. 10 mins. to go in 1st quarter. Kansas will take over at its own 2-yard line after good Mizzou coverage.

– Derrick Washington has lined up as a wideout twice on this drive.

– Kip Edwards knocks down a deep Kansas pass on third down to force a punt. Big play by the MU secondary.

– Carl Gettis makes a hit and claps in front of the KU bench.

– Two passes to Kerry Meier get KU a first down.

All the lower-level fans are standing on this opening drive.


– Kansas takes the field havingbeaten Missouri last year. They are 5-6 this season and would become bowl-eligible with a win today.

– The Tigers (7-4) take the field at Arrowhead for the fourth time in three years. They are 1-2 in those games.

– Missouri’s captains enter first. The lower level of the stadium is pretty much packed. Most of the empty seats are in the upper corners of the stadium.

– Pregame introductions are finished, and Arrowhead has come alive as fans await each team’s entrance.
