Montgomery scores 3 TDs as Cyclones blank Jayhawks”

Head coach David Beaty of the Kansas Jayhawks, left, shakes hands with head coach Matt Campbell of the Iowa State Cyclones at mid field after his team lost 45-0 to the Iowa State Cyclones iat Jack Trice Stadium on October 14, 2017 in Ames, Iowa.

Trever Ryen added a 68-yard punt return for a score for the Cyclones (4-2, 2-1 Big 12), who held the Jayhawks to a season-low 106 yards — Iowa State's least yards allowed since 1963 — and shut out a Big 12 opponent for just the fourth time. Whether it's Kyle Kempt (343 yards, three touchdowns against Oklahoma) or Jacob Park (1,181 passing yards in four games), the Cyclones appear to have talented enough quarterbacks to take advantage of KU's inexperience ... if they can avoid turnovers.

Trever Ryen still was able to get to the outside around five unblocked KU players, going 68 yards for a first-quarter touchdown return.

In its fifth straight loss of the season and the program's 43rd road defeat in a row Kansas (1-5 overall, 0-3 Big 12) averaged just 1.8 yards of production per snap versus an ISU defense that entered the weekend allowing 406.2 yards a game. "The coaches are always trying to take those guys off it just to give them a break and I'm like 'no, no, you gotta leave them in!' Our coverage team, it really showed today how good they are". An very bad day for KU's special teams further derailed any hope for an upset road win. Iowa State's defensive weakness has been in the pass game, so the Jayhawks need a better Bender if they want to have any shot at a road upset.

Moos fumbled a snap, giving Iowa State the ball at the Jayhawks' 27-yard line early in the third quarter. I heard the crowd just go insane. Montgomery scored on a 4-yard run four plays later to make it 31-0.

The special teams had to flip the field.

All in all, Iowa State played a complete game in all three phases. The Cyclone's longest scoring possession of the rout, in the fourth quarter, only covered 56 yards of soaked grass.

"They're hard to come by", Lanning said about the shutout.

In July, many Kansas football fans circled the Iowa State game as a possible win. We need to win a game despite the field position, despite where we are. They just played defense how they were taught to play.

Carter Stanley's first pass wasn't intercepted but should have been.

Running backs Martin (17 carries, 53 yards), Dom Williams (zero yards, on two rushes) and Deron Thompson (one carry, no yards) didn't help matters, in the absence of Khalil Herbert (hamstring).

Joel Lanning was the beneficiary of Iowa State's front three dominating KU's offensive line, as the linebacker ran free for 10 tackles. We weren't able to do it with any consistency. "I was like, 'he probably got that guy pretty good'". "We came up short on third down several times (2-for-17)", Beaty said.

"I wish I had a magic answer to let you know that, but I really don't know", Bender said. "All around on offense we didn't have a good game".

Kansas' defense continued to shine in the stormy conditions, forcing two-straight three-and-outs, but the Jayhawk offense struggled to get anything going with punts on three-straight drives.

Kansas is back on the road next weekend, at TCU (6-0, 3-0).
