LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) -- The senior quarterback has taken a seat and the freshman is under center, perhaps the clearest indication yet that Kansas is starting to focus on the future.

Jayhawks coach Charlie Weis sat Dayne Crist late against Oklahoma State two weeks ago and put Michael Cummings into the game, and he performed well enough to warrant the start last week at Oklahoma.

Weis is sticking with his young quarterback when Kansas (1-6, 0-4 Big 12) plays Texas (5-2, 2-2) on Saturday.
