Let me open this with saying our thoughts and prayers are with all those effected by the tragic Homecoming crash.
Kansas, the worst team in the Big 12, and maybe a bottom five team in all of college football (yes even non FBS teams could beat this Kansas team - in fact, they did), posed very little threat to the Cowboys Saturday. Here were the guys who stood out against Kansas:
J.W. Walsh: It's becoming expected isn't it? Every time Walsh enters the game it feels like a touchdown is coming. Due to the blowout Walsh saw an expanded work-load and amassed five total touchdowns including two through the air and three on the ground. It has to drive defensive coordinators crazy to prepare for the Mason Rudolph offense and the J.W. Walsh offense.
