  • Adam Barmann's 294 passing yards were the most ever by a Kansas freshman, much less one making his collegiate debut. The previous record was 242 yards by Mario Kinsey against Missouri in 2001. ...
  • Charles Gordon's nine receptions were the most ever by a KU freshman. Harrison Hill had eight in 1998. The school single-game record is 11. ...
  • In the first half, Barmann completed 12 of 13 passes for 146 yards. The lone incompletion was a drop by tight end Lyonel Anderson. ...
  • Red-shirt freshman free safety Jonathan Lamb made his first career interception late in the first quarter, filching a Dustin Long pass that was deflected into the air by KU cornerback Shelton Simmons. ...
  • KU coach Mark Mangino dipped into his bag of tricks early in the second quarter. Facing fourth-and-one near midfield, Greg Heaggans lined up at quarterback, took the snap and pitched to tailback Jon Cornish, who ran for three yards and a first down. ...
  • KU failed on another gadget play after its fourth TD when holder Curtis Ansel picked up the snap on an apparent kick conversion and bolted for the end zone. Ansel was stopped inches short. ...
  • KU linebacker Kevin Kane tipped a 37-yard field-goal attempt by the Aggies' Todd Pegram late in the first quarter, causing the boot to fall far short of the posts. Pegram also misfired on a 31-yard attempt in the fourth quarter. ...
  • KU's Johnny Beck was wide right on a 42-yard field goal attempt early in the second quarter. Beck was also wide right on the extra point attempt after the Jayhawks' third touchdown. ...
  • Jerod Brooks, a walk-on from Ottawa, kicked off after Beck missed the extra point. It was the KU debut for Brooks, a junior-college transfer. Later, Brooks kicked the extra point after the Jayhawks' last TD. ...
  • Injured quarterback Bill Whittemore made the trip. Whittemore, who suffered collarbone damage in last week's Kansas State game, wore his jersey and sweat pants on the sidelines while helping signal plays to Barmann. ...
  • On hand for his second straight A&M football game was former President George Bush, whose library is located in College Station on, you guessed it, George Bush Drive. ...
  • John Laurie, principal of Blue Valley West High in suburban Johnson County, was the referee in charge of the Big 12 officiating crew. ...
  • Kickoff temperature was 77 degrees under partly cloudy skies with a 10 mph wind out of the south. Conditions were sultry with the humidity at 74 percent.
