Jim Donnan The Kansas defense, which performed well all season, was solid again in the Fort Worth Bowl, taking Houston completely out of its game. This time, though, the KU offense helped out. Jason Swanson had an impressive night throwing the ball and the Jayhawks rolled to over 500 yards of total offense. The big win will help Mark Mangino's squad build toward 2006. -- Jim Donnan
