Border War: Post-Game Notes

Another season has come and gone for the Kansas Jayhawks football team, and Phog.net is here with the final edition of News and Notes for 2010.

• KU's loss to Missouri Saturday afternoon was the Jayhawks' 16th loss in their last 19 games.

• It was their 4th loss in the last five Border War meetings.

• KU finished the season 3-9 overall, 1-7 in the Big 12.

• One more reason to abandon the Arrowhead experiment: KU is 1-3 against Missouri in games played at Arrowhead Stadium.

• This was Kansas' 10th straight loss away from Memorial Stadium.

• Kansas wore white helmets with all-white uniforms for the first time since 1978. That was Bud Moore's last season, in which he went 1-10. That included a 48-0 loss at Missouri. Yet another proud tradition sallies forth...

• KU had a season-high four sacks. Patrick Dorsey and Toben Opurum recorded their first of the season. Jake Laptad and Richard Johnson also recorded sacks.

• Laptad's sack was the 21st of his career, which is the second-most all-time by a Jayhawk.

• The Jayhawks' four sacks were the most in a game since the team recorded five at Texas Tech last season.

• Kansas RB James Sims scored his ninth rushing touchdown of the season, which is the most by a Jayhawk since Jake Sharp had 12 rushing touchdowns in 2008. It's also the most rushing touchdowns by a freshman since June Henley rushed for 13 in 1993.

Greg Brown recorded his first interception and the sixth this season by KU.

D.J. Beshears recorded 54 yards in kick returns Saturday, giving him the single-season record for return yardage with 922.

Bradley McDougald recorded his first interception of the season and the second of his career. It was the second time this season that KU has had multiple interceptions in a game (2, vs. Colorado).

Alonso Rojas recorded a 50-yard punt in the fourth quarter, giving him 14 punts of 50-plus yards this season. He had at least one punt of 50-plus yards in each game except for the Colorado game.

Steven Johnson tallied a career-high 13 tackles on Saturday against Missouri. Kansas LB Drew Dudley's nine tackles were a season-high.
