, Kan. (AP) - It did not take DiIvory Edgecomb long to get the hang of being a major college player. One game into Florida-Atlantic`s first full season as a member of Division I-A, he is already talking smack. So what if Kansas came from behind and beat the Owls 30-19 in their season opener? "It wasn`t really that physical out there at all," said Edgecomb, a running back who caught one of Danny Embick`s two 66-yard touchdown passes. "I thought everyone was going to try to run over me and run over our offense," Edgecomb said. "They did not live up to my expectations at all. I was expecting Kansas to be a big powerhouse with all the seniors they had. If we had played at the same level we played in practice, I believe we could have come out with a win." Brian Luke, who apparently will alternate with Adam Barmann at quarterback, directed four scoring drives and Clark Green ran for 107 yards to lead the Jayhawks. Kansas took a 19-13 lead when Luke hit Jeff Foster with a 17-yard touchdown pass with 32 seconds left in the third quarter. Embick threw for 299 yards and three touchdowns for the Owls, who this year are playing their first full Division I-A schedule. Two of his passes went 66 yards for touchdowns, to Thomas Parker and Edgecomb. Embick connected with Frantz Simeon on a 15-yard touchdown pass on the last play of the game. "Who`s the time keeper? Aren`t we at home?" said a grinning Mark Mangino. The fourth-year Kansas coach said he was happy just to get the first game out of the way. "The toughest game of the year is always the first game," he said. "It`s nonconference, so you don`t know what to expect from the other team and you just don`t know how your guys are going to play out in that first game. The NFL has preseason games and high schools have scrimmages. We play for keeps from day one." Embick`s second TD pass put the Owls of the Sun Belt Conference up 13-12 after Brandon Perkins sacked Embick on a 2-point pass attempt. About 5 minutes into the fourth quarter, Scott Webb kicked a 32-yard field goal for the Jayhawks, and a few minutes later Jon Cornish broke two tackles on a 29-yard touchdown run. Luke relieved Adam Barmann midway through the second quarter for the Jayhawks, who are coming off a 4-7 season and are picked last in the Big 12 North. Kansas grabbed a 2-0 lead in the first period when Perkins chased Embick into the end zone and forced him into a safety for an intentional-grounding penalty. Kyle Tucker`s career-long 58-yard punt and an ensuing 10-yard penalty had put the Owls on their own 12. Kansas gave up an offensive touchdown in the opening quarter for the first time since 2003 when Parker beat All-Big 12 cornerback Charles Gordon on a 66-yard pass play with 19 seconds left. Parker took a perfectly thrown spiral from Embick on a fly pattern over the middle. Gordon, who tied for the NCAA lead last year with seven interceptions, was clearly beaten on the play. All last year, the Jayhawks gave up only two field goals, a safety and a defensive touchdown in the first quarter. Barmann, who beat out Luke for the starting job, made it 9-0 in the final minute of the first quarter with a 6-yard touchdown run. The Owls caught Kansas out of position to take the lead on Edgecomb`s 66-yard TD reception in the third period. Edgecomb was all by himself on the left side of the field and scored without being touched. Webb also had a 43-yard field goal in the third period.
