LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ Jake Heaps and Justin McCay are finally ready to take the field for Kansas.

The two high-profile transfers were forced to run the scout team thanks to NCAA rules while the Jayhawks scuffled along to a single win last season. Now, former BYU quarterback Heaps and the former Oklahoma wide receiver will lead the Jayhawks into Saturday night's game against South Dakota.

It's the season opener for the Jayhawks, who had a rare Week 1 bye. South Dakota will be trying to build on a 10-7 win over UC Davis in its opener.

The Jayhawks say they won't overlook the Coyotes, especially after eight Football Championship Subdivision schools knocked off their FBS counterparts last weekend.
