LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ James Sims ran for more than 1,000 yards for Kansas last season, even though he was suspended for the first three games. It was a rare bright spot in a 1-11 campaign.
Now, he's not the only guy proving he can make things happen out of the backfield.
The Jayhawks relied heavily on the run last season, and that hasn't changed. It's just that now Tony Pierson and Brandon Bourbon are catching the ball out of the backfield rather than taking handoffs exclusively, and Darrian Miller is back after getting kicked off the team shortly after coach Charlie Weis arrived on campus.
Together, the group has helped the Jayhawks get off to a 2-1 start entering a week off before the start of Big 12 play.
