The Texas Longhorns and the Kansas Jayhawks meet in a Big 12 conference college football matchup from David Booth Kansas Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The Texas Longhorns will look to build on a 17-13 win over West Virginia last time out to improve to 5-2 with their 3rd straight win. Sam Ehlinger has thrown for 1,834 yards, 22 touchdowns and 5 interceptions on 58.8% passing while also leading the Longhorns in rushing with 323 rushing yards and 7 scores. Bijan Robinson, Keaontay Ingram and Roschon Johnson all have 200+ rushing yards for Texas this season. Joshua Moore leads Texas with 22 catches for 343 yards and 7 touchdowns while Brennan Eagles has 19 receptions for 286 yards and 5 TDs and Tarik Black has 209 receiving yards as well for Texas this season. The Longhorns have another six different receivers with at least 100+ receiving yards this season as well. On defense, Joseph Ossai leads the Longhorns with 48 total tackles as well as a team-high 4 sacks while Juwan Mitchell is right behind with 46 total tackles including 23 solo tackles. Chris Brown leads Texas with 25 solo tackles as well this season.
The Kansas Jayhawks will be looking to pick up their first win of the year after falling to 0-7 and 0-6 in conference play after ending up on the wrong side of a 62-9 drubbing at the hands of Oklahoma last time out. Jalon Daniels has thrown for 661 yards and 4 interceptions on 51.8% passing while Miles Kendrick has tossed for 379 yards, 4 touchdowns and 4 picks on 61.6% passing this year. Velton Gardner leads Kansas in rushing with 325 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Kwamie Lassiter II has a team-high 31 catches for 324 yards. Andrew Parchment and Luke Grimm each have 100+ receiving yards as well this season. On defense, Kenny Logan Jr. has a team-high 50 total tackles including 35 solo tackles and a pair of interceptions while Kyron Johnson has 31 total tackles and 3 sacks.
Texas is 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 6-2 in their last 8 road games. Kansas is 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games overall, 0-7 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games while the over is 7-0 in their last 7 games against a team with a winning record. Texas is 0-4 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams.
This feels like a lot on the surface considering that Texas is just 2-4-1 ATS this season. But then you realize that Texas is coming off of a bye week with an extra week to prepare for Kansas. Kansas. Yes, that Kansas team. The same Jayhawks team that’s 0-7 straight up and 0-7 against the spread this season. The same Kansas team that’s coming off of their worst loss of the season and have been outscored 301-83 in 6 conference games this season, an average margin of defeat of 36.3 points per game. The Kansas football team is an embarrassment and Texas should have the win and cover well in hand by halftime. I’ll lay the points with Texas in a rout.
