Not a great start when looking at the stats for this week.  After the jump, drive statistics are compared between the two teams.  

These are the same numbers that I put in the fanshot Sunday night.  Overall, the numbers are very similar for the two teams.  The only real edge goes to the Wildcats in explosive drives (drives that average more than 10 yards per play) and 5 of those drives came against Missouri State.  

 

The Jayhawk defense fares quite a bit better than the Wildcat defense using these numbers.  The Wildcats force fewer 3 and Outs, allow more explosive drives, more methodical drives, and have allowed opponents to reach the end zone more often than the Jayhawks.  These numbers do need to taken with a grain of salt because Nebraska did some damage to the Wildcats defense.  However, their numbers weren't great before last Thursday.  Game by game numbers are below so you can take a look and draw your own conclusions.
