Kansas leads 20-14 at halftime, OSU's Bowman injured

STILLWATER, Okla. - Oklahoma State ended the first half by punting twice, but that might not be the worst of the news for the Cowboys.

After taking a tough hit from Aqib Talib on an incomplete screen pass, Oklahoma State wide receiver Adarius Bowman left for the locker room with about two minutes left in the first half. The loss of Bowman would be a huge strike against the Oklahoma State offense, even though the normally-dominant receiver has only 22 yards so far tonight.

Kansas capped off an extremely impressive offensive first half with a 42-yard field goal by Scott Webb with 2:24 remaining. The field goal gave Kansas a 20-14 edge, which the team holds heading into the half.

So far, Todd Reesing and the Jayhawks have exploited the weak zone coverage of the Cowboys. Reesing has passed for 152 yards on 15-of-22 passing and wide receiver Marcus Henry has 76 receiving yards and a touchdown.

Oklahoma State's offense has been predicated on the effectiveness of running back Dantrell Savage. Savage, the Big 12's top per-game rusher, already has 74 yards on 10 carries through two quarters. This one was billed as an offensive showcase, and it's living up to it.
