|F||Offense||The Jayhawks were shut out for the first time since playing at Texas in 2011. No matter the conditions, thats something you want to avoid.|
|D||Defense||Maybe it was the field, but the Jayhawks allowed Iowa State quarterback Grant Rohach, in his first year starting, to look like a savvy veteran.|
|C||Special teams||It was a pretty non-descript effort on special teams; punter Trevor Pardula averaged 39.4 yards on five punts.|
|D||Coaching||Well, this isnt how Charlie Weis wanted to follow up the Jayhawks first Big 12 win in 28 games. KU has now lost 24 straight games on the road a streak they will carry into next season.|
