Kansas Coach Jimmy Dushane had been waiting for the game - a win to stop the Comets' losing streak.
It finally came on Friday, Sept. 8, as the team beat the Wyandotte Bears 42 to 24.
“I am proud of the effort and proud of how hard the kids have worked,” said Dushane. “My assistant coaches have done a great job in preparing the kids for what Wyandotte was going to do.”
The last time Kansas won a football game was on Oct. 15, 2015 a 42-14 win over Chouteau.
