Reflecting on Saturday's game

Mark Mangino and his coaching staff had a chance to review the Jayhawks 30-24 over Kansas State on Saturday. The Jayhawks head coach talked about what he saw during his Monday press conference.

"We opened Big 12 conference play this past week by getting a victory in Manhattan which is in the Big 12 North and a road game for us so we were able to get off to a good start in conference play," he said. "We played very well on defense and they were solid all day long. They limited the opponent to 51 yards rushing and did a really good job in the second half of disrupting the quarterback rhythym and ultimately getting three interceptions."

Mangino liked what he saw on both sides of the ball and mentioned the play of Adrian Mayes who was a walk-on from Manhattan that earned a scholarship.

"On offense we moved the ball very well on the ground and in the air," Mangino said. "Brandon McAnderson and Jake Sharp ran the ball very well behind a good performance of our offensive line. Todd Reesing threw the ball very well and made some key, big plays. Our offensive line played well led by Adrian Mayes who happens to be a native of Manhattan. James McClinton continues to play very well for us at defensive tackle and Joe Mortensen and several other kids are stepping up on defense and making plays for us as well as Aqib Talib."
