No. 1 - Dorance Armstrong Jr.: The No. 1 prize of KU’s 2015 recruiting class has performed up to that distinction. The true freshman defensive end from Houston had two sacks, giving him 3.5 on the season, tied with Daniel Wise for second-best on team, behind Ben Goodman (4.5).

No. 2 - Tyler Patrick: Caught a pass when tightly covered and made a nice move that freed him for a 17-yard touchdown. Led team with five receptions and 46 yards.

No. 3 - Steven Sims Jr.: True freshman receiver caught four passes for 30 yards.

No. 4 - Ryan Willis: Playing behind a cobbled-together offensive line, Willis has enough zip on the ball to throw the ball into tight spots for completions. he made some freshman mistakes, including sliding just shy of the first-down marker, but he also completed 20 of 34 passes for 181 yards and did not throw an interception. Was sacked five times for 29 yards in losses.

No. 5 - Joe Dineen: The Local Boy was credited with nine tackles and a quarterback hurry.

No. 6 - Chevy Graham: Walk-on defensive back contributed three tackles, including a sack.

No. 7 - Fish Smithson: Made mistakes that led to big gains, but also had 10 tackles.

No. 8 - Beau Bell: His team down 55 points with 2:33 left on the clock, Bell raced down the field and made a great play, downing the ball on the 1.

No. 9 - Daniel Wise: Active for the third consecutive week, the red-shirt freshman defensive tackle had a tackle behind the line of scrimmage and a quarterback hurry.

No. 10 - Kyron Watson: Badly missed a tackle on what would have been a sack, but also was in on three tackles and returned a fumble 13 yards.

After a week on the bench, I was happy to see Patrick back in the lineup.

One quibble is that since the guy who downed the punt on the 1 was ranked, shouldn't the guy who kicked it have been ranked?

It seemed like Wyman had a pretty good day overall and is growing into his own as a punter.
