    BC Falls to Kansas: Win is Jayhawks First Power Five Road Win in 11 Years
    Boston College fell at home to Kansas Friday. The win was Kansas' first road victory against a Power-Five conference team in 11 years.

    Kansas coach Les Miles' return to college football brought him some quick joy.

    It also brought the Jayhawks something they haven't had in a long time _ a road win at a Power Five school.

    Carter Stanley threw for three touchdowns, Khalil Herbert rushed for 187 yards on just 11 carries and Kansas stunned Boston College 48-24 Friday night for its first road win over a Power Five team in nearly 11 years.

    The Jayhawks (2-1), who entered as a three-touchdown underdog, won their first road game against a power conference opponent since a victory at Iowa State on Oct. 4, 2008, a span of 48 straight losses. Pooka Williams ran for 121 yards on 22 attempts with a TD, and Herbert added a late score. Stanley was 20 of 27 for 238 yards with an inception on his first attempt.

    "If anybody wants to know why a guy would come back to college football, this tells you how fun and how important college football is," said Miles, hired by the school last November after being fired from LSU two years ago.

    "It shows the Jayhawks are coming," he said. "I think it's very realistic that we can be a great program and have real quality football teams year after year - not today, not tomorrow. Shortly, in the future."

    AJ Dillon ran for 151 yards on 27 carries and Anthony Brown went 18 for 36 with 195 yards a TD pass for the Eagles (2-1). Brown also caught a TD.

    "We didn't play very well," BC coach Steve Addazio said. "I think we saw a few signs of this last week. I think today that we didn't play well at all, and that's my responsibility."

    Kansas went into the locker room with a 28-24 lead at the end of a wide-open first half that saw the teams combine for 623 yards (BC 313, Kansas 310). They also totaled 17 plays of 10 yards or more.

    Trailing 24-21, Kansas ran a simple pitch play at their own 15 with 40 seconds left and Herbert broke up-the-middle and headed down the right sideline for 82 yards before being knocked out of bounds.

    "We needed to get this win,'' Stanley said. "The manner that we got it was huge."

    Two plays later, Stanley hit Andrew Parchment - his second of two TD catches - for a 3-yard score.

    Midway into the third quarter, the Jayhawks increased it to 38-24 when Williams had a 12-yard scoring run, capping an 87-yard drive.

    BC had taken a 24-21 edge when Brown caught his 12-yard score from receiver CJ Lewis.

    The Eagles scored on their first two drives and led 10-0 before the Jayhawks scored on six straight possessions.

    For the Eagles, it's the worst home - and probably overall - loss in Addazio's seven seasons at the school. Unless the defense gets fixed quickly, it could lead to a rough year when conference play and a tough late schedule loaded with road games at Clemson, Syracuse and Pittsburgh - and a nonconference matchup at Notre Dame - kicks in.
