This day in college football history, Kansas lives life on the edge against Missouri

On this day in 1973

No. 20 Kansas continued its life on the edge by winning the Border War against No. 19 Missouri 14-13 in Lawrence, Kan. The Tigers held a 13-0 lead entering the fourth quarter, but Jayhawks quarterback David Jaynes threw two touchdowns in the final quarter to claim the win. The win allowed Kansas to set an NCAA record by playing their sixth game of the season decided by two points or fewer. The Jayhawks defeated Colorado and Iowa State by two apiece, lost to Nebraska and Tennessee by one each and tied Oklahoma State.
