Senior wideouts Collin Johnson and Devin Duvernay each had a monster game against the Jayhawks in Johnson’s second game back from a hamstring injury.

Duvernay finished with eight catches for 110 yards and two touchdowns, while Johnson hauled in eight catches for 96 yards. The duo being on the field at the same time presents matchup problems for any opponent.

“It’s huge to have both of them healthy,” Ehlinger said. “Those guys are incredible talents, and it’s really tough for defenses to stop one of them, and then you put two of them out there … defenses can’t stop both. They have to pick their poison. It just increases the versatility the offense has.”
