Sims has record day
Senior running back James Sims made history on Saturday, becoming the first player in KU history to rush for 1,000 yards in back-to-back seasons.
Sims, who rushed for 1,013 yards last season, joined former Kansas running backs Tony Sands and June Henley as the only KU running backs with multiple 1,000-yard seasons. Sims, who finished with 21 carries for 114 yards, now has a career-high 1,028 yards on the season.
Sims also increased his career total to 3,510 rushing yards, third-most in Kansas history.
• Kansas has lost four straight to Iowa State after beating the Cyclones five straight from 2005 to 2009.
• Junior quarterback Jake Heaps completed seven of 19 passes for 72 yards after replacing freshman Montell Cozart in the third quarter.
