Running backs, offensive linemen dominate ratings
1. Darrian Miller: Quick, shifty, powerful true freshman back willed his way to 147 yards on 24 carries. His presence bodes well for future of KU’s running game.
2. Bradley McDougald: Third stellar game in a row for the hard-hitting, fast safety. He broke up two passes and made 10 tackles, seven solos.
3. Tony Pierson: Give him an inch and he’ll take 34 yards and a touchdown. It wasn’t his only highlight. He finished with 70 yards on eight carries.
4. Jeremiah Hatch: Made an incredible catch in the end zone of a Baylor fumble and led a terrific performance by the offensive line.
5. Steven Johnson: Had 10 tackles and a fumble recovery in his final home game.
6. Tanner Hawkinson: Right tackle contributed to the strong running game.
7. Trevor Marrongelli: Continued strong junior season. He’s one of the team’s most improved players.
8. Keeston Terry: Safety had seven tackles, four solos.
9. Christian Matthews: Looked good running out of the wildcat offense and gained 15 yards on four carries. Scored on a 6-yard run.
10. Kale Pick: Came up with clutch receptions, finished with five catches for 39 yards. One of many receivers to contribute strong blocks on the perimeter.
