LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- Todd Reesing threw three touchdown passes and Maxwell Onyegbule returned an interception 48 yards for another score, enabling No. 22 Kansas to shake off a sluggish start and beat Duke 44-16 Saturday for its 25th victory in 29 home games.
A surprised Kansas (3-0) found itself trailing 7-0 after Thad Lewis engineered a two-play, 87-yard drive on Duke's first possession. The 22-point underdog Blue Devils (1-2) kept it tied 7-all into the second quarter before Reesing began finding his touch.
The senior wound up hitting 28 of 41 for 338 yards, the 14th 300-yard day in a career that has erased almost every school passing record.
Dezmon Briscoe had six catches for 117 yards, including a 14-yard TD reception. Kerry Meier stretched out and made a diving catch of Reesing's 6-yard TD pass for a 20-17 lead 76 seconds before halftime, and freshman Toben Opurum scored two touchdowns.
