WATCH: Rutgers blocks Kansas FG attempt, returns it 64 yards for TD
Rutgers and Kansas are in a battle on Saturday.
The Jayhawks are favored to beat another Power 5 team — which doesn’t happen often — and to most college football fans, neither program is known for being dominant. That’s OK though, because it leads to what should be an interesting football game.
And interesting to this point is an understatement. It’s been a special teams and defensive show in the first quarter and the Scarlet Knights’ defensive field goal unit came up big.
Kansas was driving and was looking to expand upon its 10-0 lead in the opening quarter. Then, it was fourth down after a stop by the Rutgers defense. The Jayhawks tried to make it 13-0 with a field goal and then this happened:

Not only did Rutgers get the block, but Deonte Roberts scooped up the football and took it 64 yards to the house to give the team its first points of the game.
Kansas is currently up 17-7 late in the first quarter.
