Coffman Leads K-State To First Win At Kansas Since 2002

Lawrence, KS (Sports Network) - Carson Coffman accounted for five touchdowns, three rushing and two passing, as Kansas State blew out Kansas, 59-7, in the Sunflower Showdown.

Coffman completed 15-of-16 passes for 184 yards and rushed 10 times for 42 for the Wildcats (5-1, 2-1 Big 12), who bounced back from a 48-13 loss to Nebraska last Thursday. Daniel Thomas rushed for 91 yards and a TD and Stephen Harrison returned a fumble 85 yards to the end zone as the Wildcats dominated in the battle for the Governor's Cup and state bragging rights. It was KSU's first win in Lawrence since 2002.

Jordan Webb completed 26-of-46 passes for 228 yards, but was picked off once for the Jayhawks (2-4, 0-2), who have been outscored 114-14 over their last two games. They were blown out by Baylor on October 2.

Josh Cherry kicked a 38-yard field goal to represent the lone points of the first quarter, but Coffman slipped into the end zone from eight yards out on a fourth down call on the first play of the second.

Kansas' Deshaun Sands fumbled on the ensuing play from scrimmage and Coffman finished the short drive with a one-yard TD run for a 17-0 lead, just 2:35 into the quarter.

Thomas scored on a nine-yard run just over four minutes later, and Coffman's 13-yard TD pass to Travis Tannahill expanded the lead to 31-0 with 1:51 remaining in the half.

Coffman connected with Andre McDonald for a 29-yard scoring pass early in the third, and Harrison ran back a James Sims fumble to the end zone later in the period.

A two-yard TD run by Coffman made it 52-0 with 1:23 left in the third. That score came after Harrison came up with an interception in the end zone and a 56-yard run from William Powell.

Kansas' lone score came on Angus Quigley's five-yard run with 2:28 left in the game. Collin Klein then ran 51 yards for a TD to cap the scoring.
