Baylor Vs. Kansas Halftime Update: Jayhawks Shocking The Bears, Lead 17-3

In a game where one would think the Baylor Bears motivation to become bowl-eligible would be paramount, the Kansas Jayhawks have jumped out to a 17-3 lead over the Bears at halftime at Memorial Stadium in Lawrence, Kansas.

The key to that 14-point lead for the Jayhawks? Four Baylor fumbles, all lost to Kansas, as the Bears high-flying offense has essentially been grounded by putting the ball on the ground.

With all of the turnovers, give credit to Kansas for finding a way to capitalize. Christian Matthews scored on a two-yard plunge to close out a 9-play, 49-yard drive to put the Jayhawks up 10-0 early in the second quarter. After another fumble, James Sims scored on another 2-yard run for a 17-0 lead.

Baylor finally scored on a 37-yard field goal from Aaron Jones to put them on the board, making the score 17-3 at halftime.

Robert Griffin III has thrown for 79 yards and rushed for 29 more, as his production will have to improve for Baylor to get back into the game.
