It’s never fun to lose, and it’s even less fun to lose 55-14, which was the final score in Kansas’ tilt against the Kansas State Wildcats last week. Kansas was down 55-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Their only offensive touchdowns (two) came on a rush from QB Jalon Daniels.
Iowa State suffered a bitter loss last week, failing to capitalize on an early lead against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. It was close but no cigar for Iowa State as they fell 24-21 to Oklahoma State. Despite the defeat, the Cyclones got a solid performance out of RB Breece Hall, who rushed for one TD and 185 yards on 20 carries. That touchdown — a 66-yard rush in the third quarter — was one of the highlights of the matchup.
The Jayhawks have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 28.50 point spread they are up against. Those burned by picking them against the spread last week might want to keep in mind that the squad has never dropped back-to-back games against the spread this season.
With both teams hitting sour notes in their previous games, they will no doubt be looking to produce a better outcome in this one. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
The Cyclones are a big 28.5-point favorite against the Jayhawks, according to the latest college football odds.
