Time Running Out for Kansas to Turn Things Around

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Time is running out on Kansas to pick up its first Big 12 win of the season. Its first road win under second-year coach Turner Gill, too.  Just maybe, time is running out on Gill altogether.  The Jayhawks (2-6) have lost six straight by an average of 34 points, and the closest they’ve come to winning away from home was a 31-16 loss to Southern Miss early last season. They get another chance – perhaps their best remaining chance – on Saturday at Iowa State, which is coming off a where-did-that-come-from 41-7 romp over Texas Tech last week.  After that, the Jayhawks finish up with Baylor’s high-powered offense in Lawrence, a tough trip to Texas A&M and the annual Border Showdown against Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium.
