KU’s offensive line, which was playing its first game without former left tackle Hakeem Adeniji in five years, was completely outmatched by Coastal Carolina’s defensive line on Saturday. Even when the Jayhawks had success moving the ball — like they did in the third quarter — it took a lot out of the players up front.

As a unit, the Kansas offensive line gave up five sacks in its second consecutive loss to Coastal Carolina. The Chanticleers recorded 12 tackles for loss, which was tied for the fourth-most TFLs in a single game in CCU history and the most by the defense since 2013.

Most of the struggles were especially evident in pass protection. According to NCAA Premium Stats on Pro Football Focus, Kansas posted a pass blocking grade of 19.7 in the loss. PFF’s premium stats only go back to the start of the 2014 season, but KU’s previous worst mark in that department was a grade of 34.4 against TCU in 2017.
