KU’s Reesing, Stuckey earn Big 12 player of the week honors

December 1, 2008


Kansas football players Todd Reesing and Darrell Stuckey earned Big 12 player of the week honors after helping the Jayhawks to a 40-37 victory over Missouri on Saturday.

Reesing was named the conference's offensive player of the week, while Stuckey was honored as the league's defensive player of the week.

Reesing finished 37-for-51 with 375 passing yards and four touchdowns. He also led KU to a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns, including the game-winning TD pass to Kerry Meier with 27 seconds left.

Stuckey, meanwhile, had a hand in three MU turnovers. He had two interceptions, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. He also had a pass breakup and tied for the team lead with six tackles.

Stuckey became KU's first defensive player to win a conference weekly honor since Charlton Keith in 2005.

The Jayhawks (7-5, 4-4) will know of their bowl destination by Sunday.

Both of those sound like extremely boring games. Maybe it's just Big Ten football is boring in general (in my opinion). Too bad we can't play someone like OSU (Oregon State). That might be a fun game to watch.
