The Kansas Jayhawks will be looking for their first win after a 41-38 defeat at the hands visiting South Dakota State in the opener for both teams. The Jayhawks moved the ball well with 576 yards but a lost fumble and interception hurt. KU was able to both run and throw effectively with Montell Cozart throwing for 293 yards and a score with Tre’ Parmalee and Darious Crawley combining for five receptions and 146 yards. The Jayhawks averaged over 5 ½ yards on 51 rushing attempts with Ke’aun Kinner piling up 156 yards on 27 totes with a pair of TD’s while Cozart added 94 yards for some dual threat at quarterback. Kansas also received a 91 yard kick return from Ryan Schadler as the offense and special teams were solid.
The over is 4-0 in Tigers last 4 games following a ATS win and is 5-0 in Tigers last 5 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game while Memphis are 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September. The Jayhawks are 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 non-conference games and are 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 games in September while the under is 5-1 in Jayhawks last 6 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Given what I saw from both teams in week one I think the total is too low…
