*This marked the final appearance at Memorial Stadium for 15 seniors. KU coach Mark Mangino praised the group afterwards.
"They've been great," Mangino said. "They're great kids who have worked hard and done everything we've asked of them. They are fun to be around. It's been a little bit of a tough stretch for them, but they've done great things here. I'm proud of them and I'm glad to have had the opportunity to coach them for these years."

His 83 receptions this season are third on KU's single-season list, just 14 shy of his school record 97 last year. He's now caught at least one pass in 33 straight games and at least two in 31 consecutive contests.
*Junior Dezmon Briscoe caught four passes for 77 yards and a TD, moving into eighth place on the Big 12 career receiving yardage list with 2,897. He also moved into fourth place on the KU single season receptions list with 65.
