1 - Hasan Defense: At halftime Defense had more interception return yards (88) than Kansas had total yards of offense (78). Defense returned his two picks 28 and 60 yards.

3 - Khalil Herbert: Somewhat surprising that he didn’t get more carries given that he rushed for 291 yards against West Virginia last season. Only carried it six times and rushed for 46 yards (7.7 ypc), 31 on a touchdown run.

4 - Pooka Williams: Mountaineers first team to keep Pooka from popping a long one. Even so, he had a solid day, gaining 65 yards on 12 carries with a long of 16 yards. Was not thrown for any losses.

5 - Bryce Torneden: Led team with eight solo and five assists and was in on one tackle behind line of scrimmage.

6 - Davon Ferguson: Returned interception 12 yards and made three solo tackles.

7 - Brian Lipscomb: Made two tackles behind line of scrimmage for 9 yards in losses, one of them a 5-yard sack.

10 - Kyron Johnson: Really quick getting to the quarterback, Johnson jarred Will Grier into fumbling and Holmes recovered. On another play, Johnson got to Grier, but couldn’t wrap him up and Grier rushed for a big gain.

Carter Stanley tops ratings in 48-28 loss to Oklahoma State

Kansas junior quarterback Carter Stanley throws the ball downfield to a teammate on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018.

Kansas junior quarterback Carter Stanley throws the ball downfield to a teammate on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2018. by Mike Gunnoe

1 - Carter Stanley: Made his first start of the season and performed in a way that makes it difficult to imagine it will be his final start. Completed 24 of 32 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns without throwing an interception. Was sacked five times for 27 yards in losses and finished the day at negative-1 in rushing yards since sacks count against a quarterbacks run totals in college, a system that differs from the NFL. Offense always seems to have a little extra bounce to it with Stanley at the controls.

2 - Pooka Williams: Rushed 13 times for 97 yards, an average of 7.5 yards. Most of it came on his 60-yard touchdown run. Pooka also caught six passes for 60 yards and his one kickoff return went for 32 yards. Has had a run from scrimmage of 41 yards or longer in each of his four college football games: 41 at Central Michigan, 52 vs. Rutgers, 72 at Baylor, 60 vs. Oklahoma State.

3 - Steven Sims: Offensive coordinator Doug Meecham shifted Sims from playing outside receiver to the slot and was creative in ways to try to get Sims the ball in space. Sims caught 10 passes for 89 yards, both totals his highest of the season, and a touchdown that went for 31 yards.

4 - Elmore Hempstead: Became the eighth Kansas player to intercept a pass for a team that intercepted four all of last season.

5 - Bryce Torneden: He has developed into the most reliable player in the Kansas secondary. Had eight solo tackles, one for a loss, and three assists.

6 - KeyShaun Simmons: Had three solo tackles, two assists, and one quarterback hurry.

7 - Jeremiah Booker: Picked up a touchdown reception for the third consecutive week, this one covering 22 yards.

8 - Kwamie Lassiter: Walk-on receiver scored KU’s first touchdown on a 20-yard throw from Stanley on the first play of the second quarter to cut KU’s deficit to 14-7.

9 - Mike Lee: Missed from time after sustaining an unspecified injury but returned to play well. Finished with four solo tackles and one assist.

10 - Joe Dineen: Eight solo tackles, one for a loss, and three assists.

Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer (12) is tackled by Kansas linebacker Joe Dineen Jr. (29) during the first half of an NCAA college football game, Saturday, Sept. 22, 2018, in Waco, Texas.

1 - Joe Dineen: Had 11 solo tackles, two assists, two tackles for losses and two quarterback hurries.

2 - Pooka Williams: Thrown for 14 yards in losses on 14 plays to offset 103 gains for a net total of 89 yards on 14 carries. Busted a 72-yard run to set up KU’s only score. Defense keyed on Pooka and KU’s offensive line gave him very little breathing room. Pass protection not Pooka’s specialty. He might as well go out for a flare pass instead of attempting to block.

3 - Daniel Wise: Despite drawing double teams managed three solo tackles and picked up a sack.

4 - Jeremiah Booker: Made himself an easy target for Peyton Bender on a 10-yard fade for KU’s lone score. Booker has two touchdown receptions, tied with Kerr Johnson for team lead.

5 - Bryce Torneden: Eight solo tackles and one assist. Also had one tackle behind the line of scrimmage.

6 - Steven Sims: Gained six yards on a reverse and 47 yards on three receptions, including one for 37 yards.

7 - Keith Loneker: Made five solo tackles and assisted on three others. Also had a pass breakup and a quarterback hurry.

8 - Osaze Ogbebor: Was in on a sack and forced a fumble.

9 - Stephon Robinson: Caught three passes for 39 yards.

10 - Carter Stanley: The third quarterback used, Stanley rushed for 27 yards on three carries and completed 4 of 6 passes for 37 yards.

Kansas running back Pooka Williams Jr. carries the ball against Central Michigan during a game Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018, in Mount Pleasant, Mich. (Jim Lahde/The Morning Sun via AP)

1 - Pooka Williams: He’s so fast and changes directions so sharply at full speed that he’s hard to put a hand on, much less slam to the turf. Pooka rushed for 125 yards and had touchdown runs of 20 yards, freeing himself up the middle with sharp cuts, and 41 yards down the left sideline after a wicked early cut. He averaged 8.9 yards per carry, and that included a 5-yard loss for which he wasn’t responsible.

2 - Joe Dineen: Had eight solo tackles, six assists, was in on a tackle behind the line of scrimmage and had the first interception of his career. He also was credited with a quarterback hurry.

3 - Shakial Taylor: Returned an interception 55 yards for the touchdown that put Kansas up, 28-7, on the first play of the fourth quarter. he also forced a fumble.

4 - Kerr Johnson: Had four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown. Appears to be developing a nice chemistry with Peyton Bender, a result, the quarterback said of Johnson running his routes in practice the exact same way he does in games.

5 - Keith Loneker: Had a sack and was in on a tackle behind the line of scrimmage. Had five solo tackles and four assists.

6 - Bryce Torneden: Hard hitter, made timely tackles to prevent first downs and had a fumble recovery. Had three solo tackles and two assists.

7 - Ricky Thomas: Starting safety in his first season in the program made four solo tackles and intercepted a pass.

8 - Jeremiah McCullough: Picked off a pass late in the game.

9 - Brian Lipscomb: Graduate transfer from VMI had three solo tackles and two assists.

10 - Andru Tovi: Moved from left guard, where he started last week, to center and made clean snaps all day.

Joe Dineen tops ratings in 26-23 loss to Nicholls State

1 - Joe Dineen: Had 12 solo tackles, several in big spots, and four assists. Was flagged for a face-masking penalty early in Nicholls drive that resulted in the field goal that sent the game into overtime, one blemish on an otherwise impressive night.

2 - Stephon Robinson: Blocked a punt early in the fourth quarter and caught four passes for 43 yards. Is super quick.

3 - Daniel Wise: Had six solo tackles, one for a loss, and two assists.

4 - Gabriel Rui: The ever-reliable kicker nailed a career-high 54-yard 3-pointer in the second quarter and hit a 41-yarder in overtime.

5 - Kerr Johnson: He knows how to get open and catches what’s thrown his way. Caught three passes for 54 yards and a touchdown.

6 - Khalil Herbert: Rushed for 61 yards on 12 carries and broke free for a 23-yard gain.

7 - Dom Williams: On a play in which many backs would have been thrown for a loss, Williams shed a tackle in the backfield and gained 23 yards. He looked stronger and quicker than last season. Williams gained 35 yards on six carries.

8 - Kyle Thompson: Averaged 47 yards on eight punts with a long of 62 yards. Dropped three punts inside the 20, but had two touchbacks.

5 - Svi Mykhailiuk: Scored 7 of his 9 points in the first half. Did not have a rebound but did have four assists and a steal.
