Kansas Vs. Kansas State: Wildcats Heavy Favorites Over The Jayhawks

John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kansas State is a heavy favorite heading into this years Sunflower Showdown against Kansas

Saturday marks the 110th time that Kansas and Kansas State will meet on the football field and while the Jayhawks hold the overall series mark at 65-39-5, Kansas State has been the more dominant program of late. That is a trend that doesn't appear as though it will change this year as the Wildcats head into this game as the favorite by more than three touchdowns.

The line for this years Sunflower Showdown opened at 23.5 and could actually increase if the past is any indication. This weekend could stand as another reminder of some of the earliest comments made by Charlie Weis when he was hired as the latest Kansas head coach. As Weis pointed out, Kansas State was 10-2 last year while Kansas was 2-10. What does Kansas need to do to move that number?

The good news for Jayhawk fans is that there are some noticeable improvements within the program when compared to a year ago. The bad news is that the Wildcats are once again exceeding expectations. Kansas State is a top 10 team with very real Big 12 title aspirations. Both teams are coming off of a bye week so it will be interesting to see how each side prepares for this one, but the smart money is on Bill Snyder because he has the better team and he has proven time and time again that he is one of the better gameday coaches in all of college football.
