Sport Video: ONE Championship: Battleground II highlights include brutal one-punch, 10-second KO
Kansas QB Jason Bean is the real deal
Bean finished 12-for-24 for 189 yards passing with 13 carries for 102 yards and two rushing touchdowns. KU went 0-9 last season under Les Miles and is 1-1 under new coach Lance Leipold. Maybe the Jayhawks won’t win a ton more games this season, but as long as they have Bean at quarterback, they are going to be exciting. For Big 12 fans, Bean reminds me somewhat of former Nebraska quarterback Taylor “T Magic” Martinez, who rushed for 31 touchdowns in his career.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Penn State's James Franklin is still fuming over officiating error against Auburn .
During the second quarter of Saturday’s game, the referees somehow managed to take two downs from the Nittany Lions on an intentional grounding call instead of one. It essentially led to Penn State punting on third down instead of fourth, which had Franklin fuming at halftime. Franklin still wasn’t over it on Thursday. On the "Penn State Coaches Show," Franklin admitted the team had to “clean up” some penalty issues. He then took the opportunity to take a shot at the SEC officiating crew that handled the Auburn game.“I think we have Big Ten officials this week,” Franklin said, via Mark Brennan of 247Sports.
