Just one Kansas football player — Kenny Logan Jr. — made the Associated Press All-Big 12 team this year.
In recent weeks, the Kansas football defense has encountered running backs such as Coastal Carolina’s Reese White (102 rushing yards, three touchdowns), Baylor’s Abram Smith (123 yards, one TD), Duke’s Mataeo Durant (132 yards, one TD) and Iowa State’s Breece Hall (123 yards, two TDs). But KU defensive coordinator Brian Borland said the back the Jayhawks are facing this week, Kansas State sophomore Deuce Vaughn, might be “the most impactful player” that they’ve gone up against this year.
