Jayhawks named FWAA Reveal Suits National Team of the Week
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football turned around an early 10-0 deficit, then dominated Boston College for a 48-24 road win, beating a Power 5 team on the road for the first time since 2008. With the win, the Jayhawks (2-1) earned the Reveal Suits National Team of the Week honor for games of the weekend of Sept. 14, as selected by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and its All-America committee.
KU senior running back Khalil Herbert ran for 187 yards and sophomore running back Pooka Williams Jr., added another 122 for the Jayhawks, which gave Les Miles a win in his 200th career game as a head coach. The last time two KU players rushed for 100 or more yards was 2014 against Iowa State. Senior quarterback Carter Stanley was equally potent through the air, completing 20-of-27 passes for 238 yards and three touchdowns.
“I can’t tell you how happy I am for those kids,” Miles said. “If anybody wants to know why a guy would come back, college football, this night tells you how important college football is.”
This is the fourth time for Kansas to win the Team of the Week honors and its first since 2016 when the Jayhawks beat Texas.
The award was announced on “Playbook” on ESPNU Radio on SiriusXM. Each Monday during the season the Reveal Suits National Team of the Week is unveiled during the program, which airs weekdays from 1-4 p.m. (ET). The FWAA’s All-America Committee selects the weekly winner and all Division I FBS and FCS schools are eligible to be selected.
