Candidates for Game Balls and Gassers following Kansas' 34-19 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday ...
• James Sims had 96 rushing yards 11 seconds into the second quarter and finished with 129 yards and two touchdowns against a defense loaded up to stop the run.
• JaCorey Shepherd continued his growth at cornerback by intercepting a pass and recovering a fumble.
• Even though hamstrung by a talent-challenged wide receiver unit and spotty pass protection, Jake Heaps has to do better than 5-for-13 with 16 passing yards.
• Kicker Matthew Wyman missed an extra point. Another was blocked, but that appeared to be the result of poor blocking by the line.
