Kansas Will Reportedly Start Jason Bean vs. OSU, but Jalon Daniels Might Play

It appears KU’s QB2 will be first up.

We’ve waited all week for clarity about Kansas’ starting quarterback situation — will it start Jason Bean, will Jalon Daniels return after an extended injury absence — and on Saturday morning we got at least . . . some clarity.

ESPN’s Pete Thamel reported ahead of the 2:30 p.m. kickoff this afternoon that Bean is expected to start for KU. Howevah, Daniels is going to go through warm-ups, and KU will determine his availability after that. (I.e. he could play 99% or 0% of snaps today but either way he isn’t going to start.)

Daniels in six games with KU to start the season was borderline Heisman conversation good. He completed 66.7% of his passes, had 11 touchdown passes to one interception and was lethal on the ground, adding 341 yards and five scores there.

Bean has been a respectable replacement for KU, but he has not been the electric talent that Daniels was. In his time this season, Bean is completing 62.5% of his passes and has nine touchdowns to three picks. On the ground in seven appearances he has added 119 yards rushing.
