(8) Chip Hilleary vs (9) Dick Gilman


(8) Chip Hilleary

Hilleary played at Kansas from 1989-92, playing in 36 games in his Kansas career, the third-most all-time. He led the Jayhawks to a come-from-behind win in the 1992 Aloha Bowl over BYU. For his career, Hilleary ranks 6th in yards and 5th in TD passes in the record books. He was also quite the runner, going for 1290 yards on 290 carries for a 4.4 average. He was named first team All-Big 8 during his senior year of 1992.

(9) Dick Gilman

Gilman played at Kansas from 1946-49. There’s not a lot out there on him, but we do know that he played QB in 1948 well enough to be named first team All-Big 7. His 18 career passing TDs puts him at 12th all-time at KU. He was a part of the 1947 team that went to the 1948 Orange Bowl, a KU team that didn’t lose until the bowl game against Georgia Tech.
