Blocking? Yep, Kansas Wide Receivers Becoming Pros

Associated Press - November 21, 2013 9:04 pm

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Wide receivers are becoming pros at blocking at Kansas these days.

The Jayhawks are only averaging 12.6 completions per game, nearly last in the nation, so the guys who are normally catching passes are finding more blue-collar ways to get involved.

Their blocking is a big reason why they’re finally winning, too.

The Jayhawks’ wide receivers helped to pave the way for Kansas to run for 315 yards in a win over West Virginia last week that ended its 27-game Big 12 losing streak.

Now that leading receiver Tony Pierson is out for the season after a concussion, don’t expect that approach to change any when the Jayhawks visit Iowa State on Saturday.
