Brawn alone did not get Kansas to
the Orange Bowl.

The Jayhawks believe brains had something to do with their 11-1
season, too. And they've got the stats to back up their case.

Starting defensive ends Russell Brorsen and John Larson have
both been named to academic All-America teams. Quarterback Todd
Reesing averaged straight-A's in high school and was admitted into
the university's honors program almost immediately.

Altogether, 46 Kansas players have an overall grade point
average of C-plus or better. Coaches and players alike believe
their intelligence and their application to academics are key
reasons they'll come into tomorrow night's game against Virginia
Tech as one of the most mistake-free teams in the country.
