Penalties hurt Kansas, which leads 21-7 heading into the half.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Iowa State avoided being completely dominated by finally finding the end zone late in the first half.

The Cyclones put together a 79-yard drive ending in a six-yard touchdown run by Alexander Robinson. The Iowa State scoring drive happened thanks to three major penalties by the Jayhawks within a two-minute window. First, linebacker Joe Mortensen committed a 15-yard facemask. Second, safety Darrell Stuckey hit Bret Meyer out of bounds. Third, cornerback Phil Strozier committed pass interference on fourth-down to give the Cyclones new life.

After their first score, the Cyclones trail 21-7 but have been out-gained in a big way. Iowa State has only picked up 18 rushing yards and is living off of Kansas' uncharacteristic penalty woes.
