Speedier James Sims earns top honor

Kansas running back James Sims heads in for a touchdown against South Dakota during the third quarter on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 at Memorial Stadium.

Kansas running back James Sims heads in for a touchdown against South Dakota during the third quarter on Saturday, Sept. 7, 2013 at Memorial Stadium. by Nick Krug

1. James Sims: Despite fumble for which Sims apologized to coach Charlie Weis after the game and dropping a pass, Sims again looked like KU’s best player, rushing for 94 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries. As advertised, he looked faster.

2. Darrian Miller: Wearing twice the number he wore two years ago when he last was in the program — he switched from No. 3 to No. 6 because Tony Pierson now has No. 3 — Miller reminded everyone of just what a terrific runner he is. He gained 72 yards on 14 carries.

3. Keon Stowers: Made a phenomenal return to the end zone on an interception — the first pick of his life at any level, Stowers said afterward — only to have the return called back because of a penalty. The interception counted, though, and so did the four tackles, two of the solo variety.

4. Tony Pierson: Showed he is up to the task in new hybrid receiver/running back role. Gained 47 yards on the ground and 32 yards in receptions. Occupies a great deal of the defense’s attention because he’s such a big-play threat.

5. Josh Ford: Blocked a punt and set up KU’s first touchdown with a 22-yard reception that at first was ruled a TD. His speed and enthusiasm are a terrific blend.

6. Matthew Wyman: Had attempted just one field goal in his life before Saturday, a blocked 50-yard attempt in high school. Then again, he had only played four football games, heading into Saturday and spent most of his athletic career kicking a soccer ball. He calmed his nerves well enough to drill a 45-yard field goal, giving him instant folk-hero status with the KU student section.

7. Ben Heeney: Leg cramps forced him out of the lineup repeatedly, but he still made his presence felt.

8. Brandon Bourbon: Rushed the ball twice, once gaining 24 yards and other time scoring a TD on an eight-yard run. Also caught a pass for five yards. He looks more confident than in years past and could have a big year.

9. Connor Embree: Walk-on-turned-scholarship player had 92 yards on four punt returns, including one that went for 42 yards.

10. Dexter McDonald: Consistently covered his man tightly and had two pass break-ups in a strong return to the KU program after a year at Butler County Community College.

Tony Pierson jumps to top of WVU, season rankings

1. Tony Pierson: Rushed for 30 yards and had a 42-yard reception, which on this day was enough to make him the team’s best player. Plus, he returned a kick 26 yards.

2. Michael Cummings: Ran the option well, completed 6 of 11 passes for 76 yards and rushed for 42 yards on 11 carries.

3. James Sims: Yards were difficult to come by, and he was limited to a season-low 57, but that was enough to give him 1,013 for a season in which he played nine games.

4. Ben Heeney: Football-seeking missile had a 7-yard sack and was in on four tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

5. Tyler Patmon: Was beaten his share of times but also had an interception and eight tackles, including a sack and another tackle behind the line of scrimmage.

6. Bradley McDougald: Had eight solo tackles and assisted on four others.

7. Ben Goodman: Defensive end moves well. He got behind the line of scrimmage for a pair of tackles and looked good doing it.

8. Jimmay Mundine: Broke free down the middle of the field on first play from scrimmage but was overthrown by Dayne Crist. Had the throw been on target, Mundine would have given the team a big spark.

9. Andrew Turzilli: Had a 41-yard reception.

10. Nick Prolago: Booted a 32-yard field goal through the uprights and made his extra point. Also did a nice job of kicking away from Tavon Austin, who did not have any returns.

Sophomores take top three spots against Iowa State

1. Tony Pierson: Ran down cornerback Jacques Washington, who had intercepted a two-point conversion pass, ran 55 yards for a touchdown and scored on a 37-yard reception.

2. Ben Heeney: He’s one tough tackler and had 13 more of them, eight of the solo variety.

3. Jimmay Mundine: Had three receptions for 63 yards, including a 35-yard gain.

4. James Sims: Streak of six consecutive 100-yard rushing games ended. He was limited to 81 yards on 20 carries and had a 16-yard reception.

5. D.J. Beshears: Had three rushes for 40 yards and returned two kicks for 60 yards. Beshears is 17 yards shy of breaking Marcus Herford’s career kick return school record.

6. Tanner Hawkinson: Helped to give the quarterbacks time to look for wide receivers, who for the most part either couldn’t get open or dropped accurate passes.

7. Duane Zlatnik: Threw a punishing block that helped Sims gain 16 yards on a screen pass.

8. Dayne Crist: If not for a few drops from receivers, including a couple from Chris Omigie on third down, he might have led the offense to better things.

9. Lubbock Smith: Always a hard-hitter, he had nine tackles.

10. Ben Goodman: Projects as a possible starter at defensive end at next season. He had five tackles.

Tony Pierson’s career day earns top Keegan honors

1. Tony Pierson: In his first post-injury game without wearing an elbow brace, Pierson had runs of 69 and 49 yards and finished a career-best 202 rushing yards on 16 carries.

2. James Sims: Scored three touchdowns, two rushing and one receiving. Set a school record with his sixth consecutive 100-yard rushing game.

3. Tanner Hawkinson: Helped create openings for Pierson and Sims on a day Kansas rushed for 390 yards.

4. Duane Zlatnik: Strong left guard delivered some pancakes and generally gave Sims enough running room to have another big day.

5. Ben Heeney: Has a real knack for stopping ball-carriers dead in their tracks. Had eight solo tackles, one assist and two tackles for a loss.

6. Jake Love: Made two of his three solo tackles behind the line of scrimmage.

7. Bradley McDougald: Returned an interception 32 yards.

8. Michael Cummings: Quarterback had a 41-yard run on fourth down and never turned the ball over.

9. Trevor Marrongelli: Strong run blocking compensates for holding penalty.

10. Brandon Bourbon: Scored on a 10-yard reception and is developing into a receiving threat out of the backfield and a good blocker.

1. James Sims: Had fifth consecutive 100-yard rushing game by halftime and finished with 126 rushing yards and one touchdown.

2. Kale Pick: Threw a great block that helped to spring Michael Cummings for a 22-yard touchdown run, ripped an interception out of the hands of Baylor defender for a 37-yard reception and had 56 of team’s 96 receiving yards.

3. Tanner Hawkinson: Has started all 45 games of his career, one shy of the school record. Has come a long way as a run blocker during career.

4. Ben Heeney: Is the biggest reason Kansas is developing a solid reputation for goal-line stands. Had six solo tackles and seven assists.

5. Josh Williams: Active defensive end had two tackles-for-loss and was in on six tackles.

6. Keba Agostinho: Was in on four tackles, two for losses.

7. Jake Love: Jake loves to make airborne tackles.

8. Greg Brown: Had interception nullified on penalty and was burned for a touchdown on the next play but also had a pass break-up and was in on nine tackles.

9. Taylor Cox: If trades were part of NCAA football, Cox would have been dealt for a quarterback weeks ago. Rushed for 71 yards on 10 carries.

10. Ron Doherty: Had great hang time and averaged 44.3 yards on six punts.

KU’s linebackers impress against Texas

1. James Sims: Busted a 64-yard run and sliced his way to a career-high 176 rushing yards for his fourth consecutive 100-yard game.

2. Ben Heeney: Was in on 13 tackles, none bigger than the rugged stop of Joe Bergeron on fourth-and-goal from the 1 early in the second half.

3. Huldon Tharp: In on 11 tackles, Tharp again showed he has a lot of toughness and a nose for the ball.

4. Jake Love: Described by Heeney as a “kamikaze” linebacker, Love had some of the day's hardest hits.

5. Greg “Lockdown” Brown: Couldn’t hold onto what could have been a game-clinching interception, but did have one interception, a pass breakup and five tackles.

6. Duane Zlatnik: Did not start, but was at his pancake-ing best from the time he entered the game.

7. Tony Pierson: Ran hard for his 51 yards, including an 18-yard gain.

8. Taylor Cox: Ask him to get first downs in short-yardage situations and he’ll double the request. Averaged 4.7 yards on six carries and had a 14-yard run.

9. Darius Willis: Played inspired football in reserve from the defensive end position and was in on two tackles, including one for a four-yard loss.

10. Brandon Bourbon: Threw a number of key blocks that helped other running backs add to impressive yardage totals. His physical day was an encouraging sign that his often-injured body has mended fully.

KU running backs perform best against Oklahoma

1. James Sims: Surpassing the 100-yard mark for the third week in a row, Sims rushed for 102 yards and had 56 receiving yards. Didn’t let the scoreboard change how hard he ran.

2. Tony Pierson: After missing seven quarters with an elbow injury, he averaged 4.8 yards on 14 carries.

3. Duane Zlatnik: Always blows open holes for the running backs.

4. Josh Ford: Rocked punt returner Justin Brown so hard he fumbled.

5. Victor Simmons: Recovered the fumble that Ford forced, giving Kansas the ball at the Oklahoma 11.

6. Tanner Hawkinson: Other than the holding penalty, had a solid game.

7. Ben Goodman: Defensive end had a sack, his first of the year, which ties him for the team lead with five others.

8. Ron Doherty: Averaged 46.3 on seven punts and put three kicks inside the 20.

9. Brandon Bourbon: Caught three passes out of the backfield for 21 yards. Might he play more next season if he switched to safety or linebacker? Maybe.

10. Dylan Admire: Rushed into action when Trevor Marrongelli missed a few plays with a minor injury, Admire made accurate shotgun snaps and blocked well.

Sims, Smith and Cummings post top efforts against Oklahoma State

1. James Sims: Foiled many a blitz with strong blocking, caught three passes for 42 yards, including a 28-yard gain, and ran for 103 of his 138 yards in the second half, 30 coming on a fourth-quarter touchdown run.

2. Lubbock Smith: Had an interception that set up the offense. It’s not his fault the offense couldn’t turn the opportunity into points. Also hit the OSU quarterback on key third-down play after KU had pulled within 20-7.

3. Michael Cummings: When he replaced Dayne Crist and started scrambling, the entire team was energized. He completed 5 of 10 passes for 75 yards and hit tight end Jimmay Mundine for a 21-yard touchdown.

4. Bradley McDougald: The team’s best defender made his presence felt early with eight first-quarter tackles and finished with 12 tackles.

5. Tyler Patmon: Did a consistently good job in coverage and had two pass break-ups.

6. Kale Pick: Consistently got open again and was found four times for 74 yards in receptions.

7. Ben Heeney: Had nine tackles and had a hand in limiting OSU star running back Joseph Randle to 2.8 yards per carry.

8. Jimmay Mundine: Got open in the end zone for a 21-yard touchdown strike from Cummings.

9. Toben Opurum: In on seven tackles, including a couple that resulted in losses.

10. Jake Love: Would have ranked much higher but for missing a tackle that allowed Charlie Moore to race down the left sideline for a 72-yard touchdown reception. Had a quarterback hurry and 12 tackles, three for 11 yards in losses. Played inspired football filling in for Tunde Bakare, who had his bell rung in practice.

Ben Heeney top Jayhawk in loss to Kansas State

1. Ben Heeney: Kansas State’s Collin Klein ranks as one of the toughest quarterbacks in college football to bring down. Heeney accomplished it at the 1 and the Wildcats didn’t have time to run another play. It was one of 11 solo tackles for the middle linebacker, who was in on 14 tackles overall and had two tackles for a loss.

2. James Sims: Carried it 28 times for 115 yards and a touchdown, averaging 4.1 yards a carry on a day where holes weren’t easy to come by.

3. Tony Pierson: Left in the first half and didn’t return and so much of the KU offense went with him. His speed coming out of the backfield for receptions gives the defense so much about which to worry. He had six receptions for 63 yards and a 19-yard touchdown. Carried the ball just once and gained 10 yards.

4. Tunde Bakare: Tackled John Hubert in the end zone for two points and a two-yard loss.

5. Andrew Turzilli: Big target knows how to get open. Had five catches for 67 yards.

6. Toben Opurum: Batted a pass to the ground on the game’s first play from scrimmage and had a 12-yard reception for a first down on a fake field goal, his first reception since his freshman season, when he led the team in rushing.

7. Duane Zlatnik: Blew open some holes for the running backs.

8. Taylor Cox: Plays the game with a lot of passion and always runs hard. Averaged 4.3 yards on 10 rushes.

9. Josh Ford: Tackled Tyler Lockett on his first two returns when it looked as if the dangerous return man had a chance to pop one both times.

10. Kale Pick: Ran the wildcat capably and caught two passes for 26 yards, including one for 14 on third-and-10.
