Reesing, defense enough for Kansas in shutout of Louisiana Tech

Sep 7, 2008 - 8:00 AM LAWRENCE, Kansas (Ticker) -- Todd Reesing threw for over 400 yards and the Kansas defense was stifling as the 12th-ranked Jayhawks blitzed Louisiana Tech, 29-0, on Saturday.

Reesing completed 33-of-39 passes for 412 yards and three touchdowns for Kansas (2-0), which led 13-0 at the half and put the game away with a 16-point third quarter.

"We have a lot of guys that are able to make plays," Reesing said. "We're not just looking for one guy. As you can see, we throw to a lot of different people."

Daymond Patterson had eight receptions for 124 yards and two TDs for the Jayhawks.

Louisiana Tech (1-1) was looking for its second straight upset, but was unable to get much going. The Bulldogs opened the season with a 22-14 victory over Mississippi State. It was the first time Louisiana Tech had defeated a team from a BCS conference since 2003.

The Kansas defense has not allowed a touchdown, but Louisiana Tech did have its chances.

"Any time you can defeat a good football team, shut them out, put up the kind of offensive numbers that we did today, you have to feel good," Jayhawks coach Mark Mangino said. "It wasn't perfect. We still have areas that we need to work on, continue to work on, and continue to get better."

The Bulldogs got to the Jayhawks' 5 in the first quarter, but the drive that lasted over nine minutes and 22 plays ended on an interception by Chris Harris.

"Kansas is an outstanding football team, and when you play an outstanding football team you better take advantage of any opportunities that you get," Louisiana Tech coach Derek Dooley said. "We had a couple of opportunities early to put some points on the board and we didn't do it. When you don't take advantage of opportunities against a good football team then it is going to be a long night."

Louisiana Tech got down to the Kansas 2 in the third quarter after a 78-yard run by Phillip Livas, but the Jayhawks stiffened. After losing four yards on first down, the Bulldogs threw two incomplete passes and then came up empty when Brad Oestriecher missed a 23-yard field goal.

Reesing connected with Patterson for a 3-yard TD in the second quarter to make it 10-0. The duo hooked up again in the third for a 39-yard TD that capped the scoring.
