Kansas uses big plays to beat Iowa St.

BY foxsports • October 10, 2009

The way leads and records kept changing hands, even the players had trouble keeping up.

First, Dezmon Briscoe broke Kansas' career record for receptions. Then Kerry Meier leaped ahead of Briscoe. Then Meier also erased the school record for most catches in a game.

In the meantime, Todd Reesing was throwing for a career-high 442 yards and four touchdowns and No. 16 Kansas was beating Iowa State 41-36 with the help of plenty of last-minute good fortune.

Iowa State's Austen Arnaud ran around eluding tackles on a fourth-and-9 play and spotted Darius Darks running free into the end zone with about a minute left. But the ball sailed over the receiver's outstretched hands, allowing Kansas (5-0, 1-0 Big 12) to slip past the 20-point underdogs and remain unbeaten.
