Ryan Willis: Maintained poise despite heavy pressure and put several long throws on the money. With two beautiful, perfectly placed long spirals, Willis turned a third-and-17 from the KU 42 into a game-tying touchdown on his first series as a starting quarterback.
Cameron Rosser: Walk-on linebacker from Las Vegas who stood out in the spring game recovered a punt that bounced off a returner's leg.
Taylor Cox: Ran hard in his season debut but fumbled twice.
Jeremiah Booker: Showed talent with three catches for 39 yards but had costly pass interference penalty that nullified great pass play on which Willis and Kent Taylor teamed.
