1. Steven Johnson: He not only went horizontal for an interception, broke up a pass, had a tackle for a loss and was credited with a quarterback hurry, he also was in on 13 tackles. Afterward, he predicted Kansas wouldn’t lose another game. Oh well, he earned a scholarship after coming to Kansas as a walk-on, not because of his prognosticating abilities.
2. Darius Willis: Flew to the ball all night and was in on 10 tackles.
3. Darrian Miller: He bounced off tacklers repeatedly and made quick cuts on his way to 66 rushing yards and one touchdown on 15 carries.
4. Toben Opurum: Made his presence felt early and looked fast even against one of the fastest teams in the nation.
5. D.J. Beshears: Strong burner knows how to get open dashing down the sideline. His only catch went for 36 yards.
6. James Sims: Scored on a 56-yard run on a broken play and finished night with 75 rushing yards.
7. Tony Pierson: Gained 20 yards on three rushes and for the season is averaging 7.5 yards per carry. It’s time to expand his role, at least a little bit.
8. Bradley McDougald: Deflected a pass and was in on nine tackles.
9. Tyler Patmon: Exposed on a couple of plays but for the most part had an active night.
10. Victor Simmons: Forced a fumble and recovered it and had a hand in five tackles.
