Sims, Heaps lead Kansas past South Dakota 31-14

Associated Press - September 8, 2013 12:50 pm

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — James Sims scored twice and Jake Heaps passed for 110 yards and one TD in his much-anticipated debut, leading Kansas past South Dakota 31-14 Saturday night and matching the Jayhawks’ entire victory total of 2012.

His yardage may not look impressive. But Heaps displayed a strong arm and a quick release in his first action since transferring from BYU, where he smashed most freshman passing records, and sitting out last season while the Jayhawks sank to 1-11 in Charlie Weis’ first year as coach.

He was 10 for 20 and several of his misses probably could have been caught. The Jayhawks (1-0) rushed for 280 yards against the lower-division Coyotes (1-1) with Sims going 94 yards on 16 carries.

Josh Vander Maten was 8 for 18 for 67 yards and one touchdown for South Dakota. He also had 78 of the South Dakota’s 219 yards rushing.
