This season has been a special one for Kansas football fans.

It’s a fanbase that doesn’t often have much to celebrate. Over the last 7 seasons, the Jayhawks won a total of 11 games. They put an end to those struggles this year.

The Jayhawks shocked many college football fans with the way they started this season. Before the season began, Kansas’ win total was set at over/under 2.5 games. The Jayhawks hit the over after 3 games. They didn’t stop there.

Kansas kept rolling all the way into the Top 25 after 5 weeks. They’ve struggled a bit since then, dropping 3 in a row to TCU, Oklahoma, and Baylor as they tried to adjust after losing their quarterback to an injury during the game against TCU.

Today they put an end to the skid. The Jayhawks welcomed Oklahoma State to Lawrence today for a battle of teams without their starting quarterbacks. The Cowboys entered the game ranked 18th in the country despite losing by 48 to Kansas State last weekend.

This week didn’t go any better for Oklahoma State. Kansas took the lead early in the game and never looked back, winning the game 37-16.

The win was the 6th of the year, making the Jayhawks bowl eligible for the first time since 2008.

To celebrate the accomplishment, Kansas’ fans tore down the goal posts.

The Jayhawks are one of the best stories in college football this season and they have impressively still looked strong on offense even without Jason Daniels.

Their fans deserve this celebration after so many years of watching their team struggle to win more than 3 games in a season.

Now they’ll get the chance to watch their team play an extra game in December this year.
