Candidates for Game Balls and Gassers following Kansas' 35-13 loss to Texas on Saturday ...
• Back from an injury to his right knee, middle linebacker Ben Heeney teamed with Jake Love on a big fourth-and-1 stop, flew into the quarterback’s face on a few plays and shared team lead with nine tackles.
• Isaiah Johnson picked up his third and fourth interceptions of the season, giving him the most in a season by a KU player since Darrell Stuckey picked off five in 2008.
• Billy Owens was flagged for running into the kicker, giving Texas a first down on its 18, instead of KU taking possession somewhere near midfield late in the first quarter.
• Killing KU’s chances of scoring first, Matthew Wyman missed a 31-yard field goal, wide left, a real dead duck. Ron Doherty replaced Wyman for the next field goal.
