HOUSTON (AP) – Chris Boswell kicked a 56-yard, go-ahead field goal with eight minutes left in the fourth quarter and Charles Ross added an 8-yard touchdown run as Rice beat Kansas 23-14 Saturday night.

The win evened up Rice’s record at 1-1, and the loss did the same for Kansas (1-1).

Taylor McHargue completed 14 of 31 pass attempts for 168 yards and Ross carried the ball a career-high 27 times for 157 yards, to lead the Owls offense. But it was Rice’s Driphus Jackson who came off the bench to drive the Owls down the field in the fourth quarter, as they scored their only offensive touchdown of the contest.

James Sims led the Jayhawks with 109 yards rushing on 19 carries.

Rice took a 2-1 lead in the all-time series between the two schools.
