Kansas 38, Oregon St. 12
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Chip Hilleary threw scoring passes of 28 and 42 yards and ran 11 yards for his first collegiate touchdown Saturday as Kansas beat winless Oregon State 38-12.
Kansas, beaten 59-10 by Virginia last week in its season opener, held the Beavers to 39 yards in the first half while taking command of the game. The Jayhawk defense sacked Beaver quarterbacks eight times for 54 yards in losses.
Hilleary, a sophomore, put the Jayhawks on top with an 11-yard run less than five minutes into the game after Roger Robben blocked an Oregon State punt and Kansas took possession on the Beaver 17.
The Jayhawks drove 56 yards on eight plays a few minutes later, with Hilleary hitting Jim New on a 28-yard scoring play. New took the pass on the 15-yard line and got past two defenders on the way to the end zone.
Tony Sands made it 21-0 with 10:38 left in the first half with a 12-yard touchdown run up the middle of the Oregon State defense.
Midway through the third quarter, Oregon State quarterback Matt Booher completed a pass over the middle to Maurice Wilson, who fumbled to Kansas’ Hassan Bailey on the Jayhawk 38.
Two plays later, Hilleary uncorked a 42-yard touchdown pass to Kenny Drayton for a 28-0 lead. It went to 31-0 a few minutes later on Dan Eichloff’s 28-yard field goal.
Oregon State’s backup quarterback, Ed Browning, threw fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 12 and 27 yards to Craig Palos.
