WACO, Texas (AP) — Trestan Ebner returned the second-half kickoff 100 yards before going 83 yards for another touchdown on a free kick after a safety, and Baylor gave new coach Dave Aranda a win in his long-awaited debut, beating Kansas 47-14.
Ebner had two more TDs as the Bears won their latest opener in 56 years after two non-conference games were called off for COVID-19 reasons.
Aranda was the defensive coordinator for LSU’s national title team last season.
The Jayhawks lost their 50th consecutive true Big 12 road game in the conference opener for both teams.
