Crowding nine and sometimes 10 men on the line of scrimmage to stop national rushing leader Troy Davis, the 10th-ranked Jayhawks took command with a 20-point second quarter Saturday and rolled past the Cyclones, 34-7, in their first game as a Top 10 team in 19 years.
One week after beating then-No. 4 Colorado and moving into the Top 10 for the first time since 1976, Kansas, 6-0 overall and 2-0 in the Big Eight, seemed sure to come out emotionally flat.
"I had concerns about that and I addressed it to the team," Coach Glen Mason said. "But it didn't happen. We're having fun out there."
Four players scored touchdowns as the Jayhawks went to 6-0 for the first time since 1968 and held Davis 80 yards below his average.
