Peyton Bender – shows skill and poise…moves forward as Jayhawks QB

The Peyton Bender era officially began for Kansas football Sept. 2 at Memorial Stadium in the season opener against Southeast Missouri State in front of 32,134 fans with mostly sunny skies and 83-degree weather.

On KU’s first play from scrimmage, Bender caught the snap in shotgun from center Mesa Ribordy and threw a four-yard pass to wide receiver Jeremiah Booker.
