Brandon Bourbon top Jayhawk against Texas Tech
1. Brandon Bourbon: A nice blend of speed, size and power, in that order, Bourbon has star potential and needed just 10 carries to show that. He rushed for 101 yards, including a 51-yard touchdown.
2. Keeston Terry: The move to free safety from strong safety suited him well. He responded with an interception and was in on 12 tackles.
3. James Sims: Took out a linebacker with a punishing block to spring Bourbon on his long touchdown run and had 85 rushing yards and 30 receiving yards on two catches.
4. Duane Zlatnik: Right guard had something to do with Kansas rushing for 239 yards.
5. Tanner Hawkinson: Right tackle continues to show progress in run blocking.
6. Tim Biere: Has a real knack for getting open. He caught four passes for 48 yards with a long of 20 yards.
7. Tony Pierson: So quick to hit the hole, Pierson rushed for 46 yards, averaging 5.1 yards. Had a big one called back because of a penalty.
8. Steven Johnson: Had seven solo tackles and five assists and two of his tackles were for a loss.
9. Tunde Bakare: Active, undersized linebacker was in on eight tackles, was credited with a pass break-up and showed he has the tools of an effective blitzer.
10. Darrian Miller: Tweaked his hamstring after just one play, but what a play it was. Miller showed his remarkable balance staying on his feet for 25 yards after catching a short pass.
