KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The TCU Horned Frogs were victorious over the Kansas Jayhawks Saturday, busting KU's undefeated record.

Starting early in the morning, and even the night before, fans flooded The Hill near David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium for the third straight sellout game.

Anticipation was high for the matchup as ESPN’s College GameDay was in Lawrence to broadcast for the first time in program history.

Comedian Rob Riggle, who is a KU grad, was selected as the celebrity guest picker.

In the final minutes of an otherwise insignificant first half, KU's first-string quarterback Jason Daniels left the field. After being evaluated in the medical tent, he headed to the locker room with 36 seconds remaining.

Daniels returned to the sideline in a sling for the second half, and backup quarterback Jason Bean filled in.

Kansas head coach Lance Leipold said postgame he was "very impressed but not surprised" with Bean's performance, who put up 262 passing yards and four touchdowns.

Bean led the team in a back-and-forth battle until TCU cemented a 38-31 win in Lawrence with a touchdown in the final two minutes of the game.

"I said you have played well and prepared well ... now go out and play," Leipold said of Bean. "I thought he did a nice job."

Leipold expects the staff to know more about the extent of Daniels' shoulder injury within the next 24-48 hours.

Saturday's loss moves the No. 19 ranked Jayhawks to 5-1 on the season while TCU, ranked No. 17, remains undefeated at 5-0.

Next week KU goes on the road to take on the Sooners in Norman, Oklahoma. Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.
