Texas vs. Kansas score update: Longhorns use ground game to take 7-0 lead

The Texas Longhorns lead the Kansas Jayhawks 7-0 after one quarter, using their stable of running backs to get in the end zone early in the first quarter.

The Jayhawks had the ball first, losing 13 yards on the three-play drive before punting the ball to midfield. The Longhorns took over at the Kansas 43-yard line and quickly gained 31 yards on a Johnathan Gray run all the way down to the Jayhawks 12-yard line. The Longhorns then used one more Gray run before Joe Bergeron took the next two carries, including a three-yard run to make the score 7-0.

The Jayhawks offense got going on their second drive, mostly on the legs of running backs James Sims and Taylor Cox. Sims and Cox combined for 43 yards rushing, getting the ball all the way down to the Longhorn five-yard line before a fumble pushed the ball back to the Longhorn 21. Quarterback Michael Cummings was then sacked at the 29-yard line. The Jayhawks elected to go for it on fourth down and failed to get the first down.

The two teams traded punts on their next two drives, keeping the score 7-0 heading in to the second quarter.
