The Baylor Bears and Kansas Jayhawks square off Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.
The Baylor Bears look to remain unbeaten and get their second road victory. Seth Russell is completing 63.1 percent of his passes for 1,281 yards, 19 touchdowns and five interceptions. Russell has 10 touchdown passes in his last two games. Corey Coleman and Jay lee have combined for 945 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns while KD Cannon has nine receptions. The Baylor Bears ground game is averaging 376.7 yards per contest, and Shock Linwood leads the way with 584 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Baylor is allowing 26 points and 397.8 yards per game. Grant Campbell leads the Bears with 32 tackles, Shawn Oakman has two sacks and Xavien Howard has two interceptions. Devin Chafin is questionable.
The Kansas Jayhawks are looking for their first win since November of last season. Ryan Willis is completing 44.4 percent of his passes for 100 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. Montell Cozart and Deondre Ford are questionable. Tre' Parmalee and Tyler Patrick have combined for 362 receiving yards and one touchdown while Steven Sims, Jr. has 10 receptions. The Kansas Jayhawks ground game is averaging 145.2 yards per contest, and Ke'aun Kinner leads the way with 341 yards and five touchdowns. Defensively, Kansas is allowing 40.3 points and 534.8 yards per game. Fish Smithson leads the Jayhawks with 36 tackles, Ben Goodman, Jr. has 3.5 sacks and Greg Allen has two interceptions. Jeremiah Booker and Joshua Stanford are questionable.
The Bears are 19-6-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 24-10-1 ATS in their last 35 games overall. The Jayhawks are 8-18 ATS in their last 26 games in October and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Bears are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Kansas may be the worst team in the entire country, and the Jayhawks have allowed a combined 119 points in the last two games against Baylor. As far as I'm concerned, the spread can't be high enough. This is going to be downright ugly.
