Eric Wilkerson set up a touchdown with a 43-yard run, threw a touchdown pass and scored on an 88-yard kickoff return at Lawrence, Kan., Saturday, leading Kent State to a 31-17 upset over the struggling Kansas Jayhawks.
Wilkerson, a 5-foot 10-inch, 180-pound junior, left the game temporarily in the third period with what officials described as a mild concussion.
He totaled 102 yards rushing in 16 carries and had 117 yards in kick returns as the Golden Flashes of the Mid-American Conference raised their record to 2-0 and handed the Jayhawks of the Big Eight their ninth consecutive defeat. Kansas is 0-2 this season.
The Jayhawks' last victory came Oct. 4, 1986, against Southern Illinois.
Wilkerson's backup at tailback, freshman Leroy Edmonds, ran for 102 yards in 24 carries.
