The Kansas Jayhawks meet the Baylor Bears in week 3 Big 12 college football action from David Booth Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

The Baylor Bears will be out to add to their 66-7 rout of Texas Southern in their last matchup. Gerry Bohanon has thrown for 395 yards and 3 touchdowns on 68.1% passing while Trestan Ebner has a team-high 245 rushing yards while Abram Smith is right behind with 244 rushing yards and a team-high 4 touchdowns on the ground. Tyquan Thornton leads Baylor in receiving with 10 grabs for 149 yards and a pair of touchdowns while R.J. Sneed has 132 receiving yards as well. Defensively, Terrel Bernard has 16 total tackles and a sack to lead a Baylor defense that’s combined for 3 sacks and 3 interceptions so far this season.

The Kansas Jayhawks will try to rebound from a 49-22 loss to Coastal Carolina last time out. Jason Bean has thrown for a team-high 352 yards and 2 touchdowns on 59.2% passing while also rushing for a team-high 156 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Kwamie Lassiter leads Kansas’ receiving group with 9 catches for 97 yards as well this season. On defense, Kenny Logan Jr. leads the Jayhawks with 15 total tackles while Byron Johnson has 14 total tackles including a team-high 11 solo tackles and 1.5 sacks this season.

Baylor is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 conference games while the under is 7-1 in their last 8 road games. Kansas is 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games overall and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 conference games while the over is 8-1-1 in their last 10 games following an ATS loss.

I’m not eager to back Bayor yet as I really need to see a step forward under Dave Aranda’s bunch. However, it has to start somewhere and there’s no better spot in my book for Baylor to do a bit of a reality check test than to play a dumpster fire of a Kansas team here. I think Baylor has the potential to make this one ugly, so I’ll lay it and play it with the Bears here.
