Freshman QB leads Baylor to season's first win

As it turns out, the oddsmakers may have given the Jayhawks too much credit as the Bears went into Memorial Stadium Saturday afternoon and woodshedded their hosts in a 38-9 win.

The Kansas lead lasted just 1:09, as Brewer led the Bears down the field in three plays, connecting with sophomore wide receiver Denzel Mims for a 56-yard completion on the drive's first play. That enabled Kansas to crawl within 12 points, but was also its last score.

Kansas (1-8, 0-6) remained winless in the Big 12 and against Bowl Subdivision opponents. After the offense was able to put up a field goal early in the second quarter, however, the tide completely turned. The Jayhawks were held without a touchdown for the third straight game; in fact, KU hasn't found the end zone in 14 quarters, with the last coming in the second quarter of a 65-19 loss to Texas Tech Oct. 7.

KU started the game on a solid note, specifically on defense.

After throwing for over 400 yards against Kansas State a week ago, Kansas sophomore quarterback Carter Stanley only managed 155 yards and tossed an interception against Baylor.

Listen here for coach David Beaty's postgame press conference audio.

Baylor (1-8, 1-5 Big 12) outgained Kansas (1-8, 0-6 Big 12) 455-289, led by freshman quarterback Charlie Brewer, who connected on 23-of-29 passes for 315 yards and three touchdowns in his first-career start.

Baylor then responded with touchdown drives of 75, 74 and 66 yards - averaging 12.6 yards per play - in grabbing a 21-6 lead.

After resorting mostly to rushing plays in the first quarter, Brewer was allowed to throw the ball, completing 13 of 17 first-half passes for 233 yards.

The Jayhawks drove into Baylor territory three times in the half, but settled for field-goal attempts each time.
