Boykin has eight touchdown passes in his last three games. Josh Doctson and KaVontae Turpin have combined for 1,777 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns while Kolby Listenbee has 22 receptions.

The Jayhawks are 6-20-1 ATS in their last 27 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Horned Frogs are 12-1 ATS in their last 13 home games and 17-7 ATS in their last 24 games overall. The Jayhawks are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Kansas has lost to TCU by 10 or less points in te last two meetings. The Jayhawks also lost to the Horned Frogs by just four points last season. Sure, TCU is a different team at home and will be eager to take its anger out on somebody. But I'm not laying this much chalk given the way the last two meetings have gone.
