Better Late than Never, Kansas defeats Central Michigan, 24-10

A slugfest turned into a rocking celebration in the Kansas University locker room near Memorial Stadium, where the Jayhawks knocked off Central Michigan, 24-10, Saturday in front of a crowd of 34,822.

Kick-started by senior Tony Pierson’s 74-yard touchdown run on the first play from scrimmage, the Jayhawks (2-1) jumped out early, watched Central Michigan (2-2) tie the game at 10 with 6:11 to play in the third and then reclaimed control with a 60-yard touchdown pass from sophomore quarterback Montell Cozart to senior wide receiver Justin McCay, both Bishop Miege High grads, both players in dire need of a feel-good moment.

The pass that proved to be the game-winner — later in the fourth, Corey Avery scored on a 30-yard screen pass from Cozart to ice the game — was thrown before McCay ever even came out of his break.
