In its first game of the Rock Chalk Challenge, Kansas fell to Tulsa by an 11-5 margin at Arrocha Ballpark.
Brynn Minor led Kansas in the circle and added to her efforts at the plate, tallying the Jayhawks' lone home run of the game in the fourth inning. The homer was the first of Minor's Kansas career.
The one-run advantage that the Jayhawks (5-18) held heading into the top of the fifth didn't last long as Tulsa tacked on its first three runs of the game against Minor. After a scoreless sixth inning by both teams, the Hurricane let loose and tallied eight runs against Minor and Hannah Todd.
Kansas then earned four runs against Tulsa reliever Kassidy Scott in the final frame, starting with a single by Macy Omli.
KU will play Nebraska at 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
