I've been hard on the Kansas Jayhawks pretty much all season, as this team isn't the title contender most thought they would be, and the losses seem to be getting worse when they take place. Kansas could be even worse off considering pretty much every game they play these days comes down to the wire. But let's not act like the TCU Horned Frogs are playing much better, as they struggle big time defensively and are just 2-4 SU on the road this season. Kansas should also be focused for this contest after losing to OK State, and the last time the Jayhawks lost, they followed it up with an 11-point win over a talented Texas A&M squad. Give me Kansas in a comfortable Big 12 victory.
