Kansas snaps 22-game losing streak against FBS teams

Associated Press

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Walk-on kicker Matt Wyman hit a 52-yard field goal with no time left, sending Kansas to a 13-10 victory over Louisiana Tech on Saturday and ending a 22-game losing streak against teams from the Football Bowl Subdivision.

Jake Heaps threw for 279 yards and a touchdown for the Jayhawks (2-1), who hadn't defeated another FBS team since beating Northern Illinois on Sept. 10, 2011. James Sims added 78 yards rushing, while Tony Pierson had nine catches for 82 yards.

Louisiana Tech (1-3) was poised to score the go-ahead touchdown with when it marched to the Kansas 18 with 1:33 left. Kenneth Dixon got the carry and was fighting for extra yardage when the ball popped loose inside the 5-yard line, and the Jayhawks' Keon Stowers recovered it.

That gave Kansas the ball with just enough time for Heaps to get the Jayhawks in position for Wyman's game-winning field goal.
