Rice 25, Kansas 24: Chris Boswell kicked four field goals, including a 45-yarder with no time left, as the visiting Owls came back to upset the Jayhawks.

Quarterback Taylor McHargue finished 23-of-35 for 236 yards while Charles Ross (94 yards) and Turner Petersen each rushed for a touchdown as Rice (1-1) snapped an 11-game road losing streak.

Tony Pierson rushed for 120 yards – his second straight 100-yard game – and Taylor Cox added 79 yards and a third-quarter touchdown that gave Kansas (1-1) a 24-13 lead.

Crist went 16-of-28 for 144 yards, including a 23-yard first-quarter touchdown pass to Jimmay Mundine.
