Candidates for Game Balls
• Jeremiah Hatch, a 300-pound center making a bid to be remembered as KU’s best receiver of the 2011 season, dove to catch a Baylor fumble in the end zone. He and his line mates did a nice job of blowing open holes for the running backs.
• Darrian Miller turned 24 carries into 147 yards. He has rushed for 543 yards, second to James Sims (604 yards).
Candidates for Gassers
• Chris Omigie had a false start penalty on third and 3 forcing KU to pass on the next play. Jordan Webb’s pass was picked off. At the end of D.J. Beshears’ potentially momentum-swinging kick return, Omigie was flagged for blocking a Baylor player in the back. The player already was out of bounds.
• With the first-half clock expired, Anthony Davis was flagged for a face-mask penalty, giving Baylor an extra play, an extra 15 yards and an extra three points.
