Kansas vs. Louisiana Tech: Player Power Rankings

Jamie Squire

1. Matthew Wyman, K

Onions. Wyman didn't flinch on his game-winning 52-yard field goal. Missed a chip shot earlier in the day, but he rebounded in a huge way. King of campus for the next two weeks (because KU is on a bye and Late Night is happening).

2. Trevor Pardula, P

Two players who use their feet taking the top two spots? Two players who use their feet taking the top two spots. He punted a ball 78 yards inside the 10.

3. Ben Henney, LB

He just had 10 tackles and an interception, no big deal. He is the anchor of the defense. The interception was his first of his career and boy was it pretty.

4. Victor Simmons, Nickel

Simmons had 10 total tackles, eight of the solo variety and a sack. Defense and special teams have been playing well this season and it shows in the power rankings. Offense really hasn't been showcased.

5. Dexter McDonald, CB

Eight tackles and two break ups. Was with his man step for step.

6. Tony Pierson, RB/WR

Weis said he would try and game plan to get Pierson the ball and that's exactly what he did. Pierson touched the ball 14 times for 113 total yards of offense.

7. Jimmay Mundine, TE

What did Mundine do on his touchdown that he didn't do against Rice? He caught the ball then ran, and it did him wonders. Made a few defenders miss, made a nice spin move and stayed on his feet until the goal line.

8. James Sims, RB

Had 79 yards on 20 touches. Helped set up the Wyman field goal in the fourth by giving Jake Heaps some room to work with after the drive started on the five.

9. Michael Reynolds, Buck

How big was his forced fumble? It set KU up for the game-winning field goal. Had it not occurred, LaTech would have scored and dropped KU to 1-2.

10. Jake Heaps, QB

Not a great game by any means, but he found a way to lead the team to victory. He'll need to be better in conference play or it's going to be a long next two months.
