Kansas runs out the clock on Iowa State, leading 38-7

LAWRENCE, Kan. - As the minutes left on the scoreboard dwindle, fans are heading for the exits in Lawrence.

Kansas has pulled Todd Reesing and most of its starters as it plays to cover the spread. Right now, the Jayhawks are getting the job done, leading by 31 as time runs out. The Jayhawks have looked like they're sleepwalking through this second half, but the Cyclones still can't manage scores or even first downs against this undefeated juggernaut. Kansas didn't look ahead to next week's game against Missouri - they took care of business against the overlooked Iowa State Cyclones.

Player of the Game - Todd Reesing. The Kansas quarterback displayed incredible efficiency and accuracy despite nursing an injured leg for most of the contest. Reesing completed 21 of 26 passes for 253 yards and four touchdowns - and he didn't play a snap in the fourth quarter.

What's Next: Kansas (11-0) will play the most important game in the history of its program when it takes on 10-1 rival Missouri in Kansas CIty next week. The undefeated Jayhawks are rolling in every way imaginable right now, but Reesing and offensive tackle Anthony Collins' health will be important factors heading into next week's game.

Iowa State's season is over. Finishing at 3-9 and meeting most people's projections of mediocrity, Gene Chizik can't be too disappointed with his squad: After all, they didn't give up 50 against the powerhouse that is Kansas.
