SIT DOWN, STAND UPJunior receiver Cameron Kenney had a breakout game against Miami, catching six passes for 72 yards and his first career touchdown. But last week against Baylor, Kenney was benched for the second half after dropping several attempts. "If you’ve got guys out there that can make the plays, they should be out there,” Kenney said. "Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make the plays I was supposed to.” Kenney’s fellow receivers recorded 10 dropped passes against the Bears without their No. 1, Ryan Broyles, who could return against Texas after fracturing his shoulder blade against Miami.
