BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Tyler Hansen wanted to prove that he should have been Colorado's starting quarterback all along. He sure showed that he deserves to be the Buffaloes' main man from here on out.
Hansen, Cody Hawkins, the coach's son, in the starting lineup, ran for a touchdown and threw a TD pass to lead Colorado to a 34-30 upset of No. 17 Kansas on Saturday night.
Providing a spark both through the air and on the ground, Hansen threw for 175 yards and ran for 34 yards. Colorado (2-4, 1-1 Big 12) handed Todd Reesing and the Jayhawks (5-1, 1-1) their first loss.
