LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Kansas coach Charlie Weis has a decision to make at quarterback.

He can go with Dayne Crist, the fifth-year senior and team captain who left Notre Dame to play for his old coach after Weis landed at Kansas in the offseason. Or he can go with redshirt freshman Michael Cummings, who showed some promise in yet another loss for the Jayhawks (1-5) over the weekend.

Facing a possible shutout on Saturday against Oklahoma State, Weis benched Crist after three unproductive quarters during which he had only 136 yards on 10-of-22 passing.

Cummings came in and led two scoring drives in the final four possessions to put Kansas in a position to win and Weis in the position of having to handle a quarterback controversy.

Weis hasn't picked a starter, publicly anyway, as his team prepares for a trip to No. 10 Oklahoma on Saturday.
